after 20 seconds a button

hi, i have a jsp application and i need a function where a button will appear after let's say 20 sec. that button will server as the submit button to go to another page.

but hte problem is the first page passes some parameters needed in the second page.that's why i just can't use a javascript.
is there a function that makes the button appear for a period of time.

i'll be also needing a progress bar picture,is there someone who knows where to find one?
thanks.

you'll have to do this with javascript, jsp cannot help you here. And yes, with javascript, you CAN do it.

I don't see a reason why you can't use javascript.
You can do something like this.

<html>
<head>
<script language=javascript>

function makevisible(){
  document.all.mybutton.style.display="";
}

function test(){
  setTimeout('makevisible()',20000);  
}

function gotoOK(){
  document.yourForm.action="secondpage.jsp?param1='1'";
  document.yourForm.submit();
}

</script>
<title></title>
</head>
<body onload="test();">
<input type=button name=btn id="mybutton" value="OK" style="display:none" onclick="gotoOK()">
</body>
</html>
