Hello,

I have web page that submit some information to the server (postback the page). On the server, I  launch an external program to do some processing (async) and return to current page. The external  does some work and write the percent complete and action to a file.  I would like the  user to be inform of the process. So, when user return to the current page again , I would like to show a status bar with progress.and keep then on on the page until  job is complete
----
 When the user return to the page  how do I show the progress bar..Do I have re-direct to another page and show the status  ? or can I show a modal dialog with a progress bar in the current page (not sure how to do this action)

[php, jquery]

Thanks for the help
