i have a page that is written in asp.net. Every time when the user refresh the screen or choose different dataset, i want to basically have a loading image in the center of the screen pops up. and during that loading time, the user can't do anything else. the code i have now only display the image on top of of the page . so how do i get it to be in the center so the user can know that the page is reloading with new data. thank you in advance.
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
        <ContentTemplate>                                              
            <asp:UpdateProgress ID="UpdateProgress1" runat="server">
                <ProgressTemplate>
                    &nbsp;<img src="images/LoadingProgressBar.gif" alt="Loading Image" />
                </ProgressTemplate>
            </asp:UpdateProgress>
            <asp:Table ID="Table1" runat="server" Width="100%" BorderColor="red" CellPadding="0" CellSpacing="5" BackColor="white">
                <asp:TableRow>                                                          
                     <asp:TableCell VerticalAlign="top" ID="radstrip2" ColumnSpan="2" Width="100%" BackColor="white" Height="100%" >                
                        <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlStores" AutoPostBack="true" runat="server" Visible="false"></asp:DropDownList>                                        
                    </asp:TableCell>
                </asp:TableRow>                                   
            </asp:Table>                   
        </ContentTemplate>            
    </asp:UpdatePanel>

try this as your updateprogress. place this outside of your update panel
<asp:UpdateProgress ID="UpdateProgress1" runat="server" AssociatedUpdatePanelID="UpdatePanel1">
 
<ProgressTemplate>
                <asp:Panel ID="pnlLoading" runat="server" Width="100%" Height="100%" CssClass="popupBg" style=" position:absolute; top:0px; left:0px; text-align:center; vertical-align:middle;">
                    <table Width="100%" Height="100%" style="border:1px solid black; padding:5px 5px 5px 5px;">
                        <tr>
                            <td>
                                <table  style="height:200px; width:200px; background-color:White;">
                                    <tr>
                                        <td>
                                            <img src="images/LoadingProgressBar.gif" alt="Loading Image" />
                                        </td>
                                    </tr>
                                </table >
                            </td>
                        </tr>
                    </table>
                </asp:Panel>

you will also need to add this style for the transparent background to work
<style type="text/css">
    .popupBg
       {
               background-color:Gray;
               filter:alpha(opacity=70);      
               opacity:0.7;
        }
    </style>
