Blank page with CFINDEX
Posted on 2002-07-17
I am carrying out indexing tasks on a Verity collection using CFINDEX. The process takes about 20 minutes, and is run each night to add files scanned in during the day.
When the cfm file opens it shows a blank page until the processing is complete. I want a page to show saying *Please wait...*. I tried to do it with a page with the message on it immediately calling the processing page using CFLOCATION, but it is too quick and I still get the blank page.
On two occasions administrators have closed the form thinking nothing is happening, and this has caused problems with the index.
Is there something like an *onAfterLoading* event for the form that I can use?, or some other way of providing a message.
