"please wait as files are uploaded" page - after form submission
Posted on 2004-09-19
I have a form page where a user selects files from there computer (mp3's & gifs) to upload to the folders on the server. My form page works fine and so does the php page that handles it...I just want an intermediate page has an animated gif telling the user to be patient as the files are uploading, and then closes automatically (or redirects) when files are uploaded.
I have tried to place the annimated gif in the php page that handles the form which doesn't work...it doesn't get to the image until all the files are uploaded.
Is there simpler & or better way to approch this problem?
