ASP Loading Page
Posted on 2006-04-16
Is there a way to display a loading page in ASP? Many travel websites have this sort of a page while the website is checking the availability of flights. Our websites have many cases where such a page would be valuable:
A) While uploading a picture
B) While re-directing to one of our partner shops
C) For heavy search queries
I am looking at two possible scenarios:
A) A fake one where you just display a loading page for 3 seconds before redirecting to the actual page. This would just be a simple page asking our visitors for their patience. How can I do this while maintaining the submitted form data?
B) A real one where the ASP script is executing on the background and will display the results page once the script is finished?
Of course B) has the preference but perhaps it is not possible in ASP. Thanks!
