I have a form that submits and after it inserts, the data into my database the results results are returned using an include statement.  I have a "Please Wait" loader that is is a DIV and is hidden when the results are returned.  The problem is that when I load this into the final product the javascript does not load any longer  I am housing the pages inside of a DIV so the loader would end up being a nested DIV.  At the end of the day, I need a "Please Wait" loader to display while the user is waiting on the query results so any help is appreciated.

Can you include some code that shows what you're trying to do?

If you are putting the javascript into the div as part of this process, you are correct.  It will not execute.

What kind of code is being loaded?  A function, a statement?

You might be able to eval() the statement.

I have a form that is nested in a div and uses AJAX to submit.  When the form is submitted, my returned page is a page that inserts the form data into my database.  The page also has an include which is a page the returns the new data as well as all previous that that meet the query requirements.  I need to have a "page loading..." place holder while the query is being run.  We have shared internet at my office so it is a bit difficult to get actual code to this site

The returning page is roughly structured as follows:

<DIV><LOADING IMAGE><DIV>
<INSERT STATEMENT>
<INCLUDE STATEMENT> (QUERY RESULTS)
<HIDE DIV JAVASCRIPT> (THIS DOES NOT WORK FROM THE WHEN THE PAGE IS LOADED INTO THE MAIN DIV WHERE THE FORM WAS ORIGINALLY SUBMITTED)

Ah, I would put a call to the "Hide()" routine in the Ajax callback routine, when it determines that the Ajax call is complete (i.e., when the HTTP Response readyState == 4 && the status == 200).

Does this make sense?
