Hi, I'm using vs2012.
I have a page with a gridview that is bind to a data source.
I would like to change the mouse cursor to animating hour glass when user loads the page or when they click on either Edit, Update or Cancel button on the gridview.  Which events would be appropriate to do this and how to do this in C# or asp.net code?  Thank you.

I found a small Ajax control to display a loading image. I know this is VB, but it should easily translate into C#.

Here is my ascx content:

<%@ Control Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="UpdateProgress.ascx.vb" Inherits="Controls_UpdateProgress" %>

<link href="../Styles/style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
 <asp:UpdateProgress ID="RoleRightUpdateProgress" runat="server">
        <ProgressTemplate>
            <asp:Image ID="loadingImage" runat="server" src="../Images/ajax_loader.gif" alt="Loading" CssClass="loadingLeftBottom" />
        </ProgressTemplate>
 </asp:UpdateProgress>

Open in new window


My ascx.vb content:
Partial Class Controls_UpdateProgress
    Inherits System.Web.UI.UserControl
End Class

Open in new window


In the top of the pages that contain an UpdatePanel where I want this to display, I register the control.

<%@ Register Src="~/Controls/UpdateProgress.ascx" TagName="updateProgress" TagPrefix="uc1" %>

Open in new window


and call it in the area where I want to display the image:
 <%--show progress icon when the panel is updating--%>  
    <uc1:updateProgress runat="server" ID="ucUpdateProgress" />

Open in new window
