jQuery

This is probably a simple question.  Is there a jQuery Plugin that will display a simple graphic while a page is busy loading?

Hi,
here we go:

Or the jQuery UI component offer the ProgressBar addon:

@Ranier, I was more interested in an progress bar that appears during the white screen between pages loading.

Hi,
the following entry shows how to unload the spinning wheel when the page finished loading:

So no direct plugin, but simply a 100% div.

@rainer
Do you think there is a way to run this as the page un- loads?
Rainer JeschorCommented:
Hi,
sure - but does this really make sense?
Page unload normally means that the browser window / tab is closed or the user navigate further.

$(window).unload(function() {
	$(".loader").show().fadeOut("slow");
})

Open in new window

@rainer.  On my page there is an "Update" button that causes the page to re-fresh.  There is a lot of content and JS that the page must go through before it does.  During which is a White Screen.  I'm trying to "soften" this experience.
