Hi Guys,

I have implemented progress bar for my code in order to let users have some indication what is going on behind the screen.

this is my jquery code for progress bar:

 $(document).ajaxStart(function () {
            }).ajaxStop(function () {
            }).ajaxSuccess(function () {

                draggable: false,
                autoOpen: false,
                resizable: false,
                modal: true


Open in new window

The issue:

After I added the progress bar it effected my autocomplete function. when users type the progress bar popup every second. actually when users type to the search box the autocomplete jquery function is going to the controller back and ford.

here is my autocomplete function:

 var performSearch = true;
                source: function (request, response) {
                    if (performSearch) {
                            url: '@Url.Action("GetAutocompleteResults", "Purchase")',
                            dataType: "json",
                            data: {
                                searchTxt: $("#searchTxt").val(),
                                option: $("#SearchByOptions").val(),
                                deptid: $("#deptid").val(),
                                catid: $("#catid").val()
                            success: function (data) {
                            error: function (jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown) {
                minLength: 3,
                delay: 2,
                minChars: 3,
                matchSubset: 1,
                matchContains: 1,
                cacheLength: 10,
                autoFill: true
            }).keydown(function (event) {
                if (event.keyCode == 8) {
                    performSearch = false;
                } else {
                    performSearch = true;
            }).data('autocomplete')._renderItem = function (ul, item) {

                try {
                    var opt = $("#SearchByOptions").val();
                    var txt = '<a><b>ItemLookupCode: </b>' + item.ItemLookupCode +
                        ' <b>Suplier: </b>' + item.SuplierName +
                        ' <b>Department: </b>' + item.DepartmentName +
                        ' <b>Category: </b>' + item.CategoryName + '<br></a>';

                    item.label = txt;

                    if (opt == "1" || opt == "0")
                        item.value = item.ItemLookupCode;
                    else if (opt == "2")
                        item.value = item.Description;
                    else if (opt == "3")
                        item.value = item.SubDescription1;
                    else if (opt == "4")
                        item.value = item.SubDescription2;
                    else if (opt == "5")
                        item.value = item.SuplierName;
                catch (err) {

                return $('<li></li>')
                    .data('item.autocomplete', item)

My question is - how do I disable or stop the progress bar to run when I type in the textbox and query the autocomplete.
