Hi Expert,

I have a submit button in my .jsp file. When i click , it takes time to display the response.
Can i have some sample code to display waiting icon(some kind of clock indicator) . Once i get response it should not show up?


    <INPUT TYPE=BUTTON  ID="butSubmit" VALUE="Submit" onClick="form_submit()">
    <INPUT TYPE=BUTTON NAME="close" VALUE="Close" onClick="window.close()">

Better do with AJAX.

On submit of form, show a progress image on the page, Send an ajax request with form details.
Once the ajax request is completed, just forward to the success/failure page based on the ajax request/response result.

In my project environment, they dont use AJAX.
Could it possible in jsp?

You dont need any special environment for AJAX. It works with javascript.

Anyways, Without AJAX, You could do this.

put a empty div in your jsp. And on submit of form, put the required image tag in the div inner html.
Then submit the form.
<div id="imageHere">

function form_submit(){
document.getElementById("imageHere").innerHTML = '<img src="image.gif" alt="Alternate text" />';
//submit the form here
