Asp search in progress page...How?

    Any suggestions to the following problem...

    I need a search in progress page, so when a user clicks my search button
    they are then directed to a 'searching...' page with an animated gif.

    The search in progress page needs to use 'GET' to go and retrieve the
    results of the search. Once the results come back they replace the search in
    progress page.

    Any help appreciated!

    Many thanks,

    Ian

  2. This could be done with a mix of client-side code and server-side code.
    Basically, you write out some HTML with a "searching" message, flush the
    response, run your server-side code, then flush the rest of the response,
    which would contain client-side code that would hide the original
    "searching" message.
