Processing dialog/alert without user input, programmatically closed

FryeM asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-15
I have a line of code related to a third party API that can take several seconds to complete.  I would like to display a dialog/alert just before that third party call then close/destroy that dialog/alert object when the third party call is complete.  There would only be a message, and hopefully a “in process” animation, on this dialog/alert with no user buttons, etc.
