It will be easier for fols of jquery because i am just a starter of jquery and i sometimes gets issues at simple places!

My question is i am getting the following data from jquery!

$.ajax({
type:"POST",
url:"welcome.php",
data: data,
success: function (html) {
$('#message').html(html);
}
});
return false;

Now my concern is the welcome.php page gives me a Data which takes around 1 min to load, actually it has a big view which takes time..

Now my Problem. I want to show a message to the user, when button clicked like this!

Please wait while we fetch data... and an revolving Image also in some red color

So once the data is load it should slowly fade out

Please guide

Thanks

call the beforeSend and  complete functions in ajax call.

while page is loading apeend the progress.gif to the body.
$(document).ready(function () {


$("body").append('<div id="progressbar" style="display: none;"> <img src="loader_static.gif" alt="Please wait a moment"></div>');

});

$.ajax({
type:"POST",
url:"welcome.php",
data: data,
 beforeSend: function(){ $("#progressbar").show();},
 complete: function(){ $("#progressbar").hide();},
success: function (html) {
$('#message').html(html);
}

});
