Want to display a "Busy: Please Wait" modal dialogue while pages postback
Posted on 2006-10-28
I have a number of forms where some of the inputs can cause a postback. I've run into issues where the user will change one of these autopostback inputs, tab to the next item, and start typing only to find it gets wiped out a couple seconds later once the page postback is complete.
To address this issue, I'd like a little "Busy: Please Wait" modal dialogue to appear while the page is refreshing - maybe in the bottom-right so it's not so annoying. While the dialogue is up, it should prevent the user from typing in the main window (in other words, it would need to behave like a modal dialogue).
