I have an ASP.NET VB web site with searching capabilities.  I would like to use JavaScript to do the following:
1) User clicks on the search button and goes to enter some keywords
2) User clicks search to submit the search
3) Main form (the search form) "grays" and a modal window pops up in the bottom-right saying "Searching... Please Wait" (Note that Netflix does something similar to this when you add movies to your queue)
4) Once the results page loads, the modal window goes away and everything goes back to normal
