You can use asp.net ajax UpdateProgess control like shown here:

There are some other commercial controls you can check on web.

It should matter VB or C#....try out the example on some sample page and you will get an idea.
Here is more documentation on that control: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb398821.aspx

you can find that control in your VS toolbox.

Hi again,

thanks for the reply, i am wanting to display a completely separate page first that displays the 'Loading message' and then calls the main page but waits untill the main page completes before re-directing to the main page etc.

Thanks

Right now I don't have solution to that....but just wondering why you want to redirect instead?
If it is just to block the UI, you can look into jquery BlockUI plugin:

Unfortunately i cannot block the ui is such a way as the web application in question is seriously heavy when loading and there are mulitple domain and sql requests etc, im quite shocked that nobody has an example of showing a loading page then redirecting to another page when its finished loading, thanks for the reply though its good to know about the UI bloxking.

Thanks
Zeus
