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)
Thanks for the help
The user complete the form and submit the request to server. I could forward the user to a new page and display the status bar but I willl have to disable the 'Browser back' option until the job is done
Is it possible, to redirect the user to the same form and popup a display a modal dialog box with the progress bar
The input form is postback to the server and does not use AJAX to post..
Or would you suggest a different method
