What would be the simplest/easiest way to show a loading graphic after hitting submit and waiting for the form results to be gathered? The results show on the same page after getting them. The amount of time to get the results varies greatly so I don't want to have to use a timer.
Currently we're using a jquery call to do this, but mostly since it's not my strong point of a programming language - with the latest wordpress 3.0.1 and so many different plugins being required on some one site, there's apparently conflict somewhere.
Showing a loading graphic is important for this because of the lengthy wait at times. We want the viewer to know that the results are still being gathered.
I've showed the jquery code here at EE before asking for advice, but it does seem that the code is correct. So I'm looking for an alternative to jquery so we aren't constantly running into conflicts.
Thanks for any additional options.
