disabling user input after AutoPostback dropdown selected ?

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Mad Scientist Jr, Jun 29, 2004.

  1. i have a dropdown control with autopostback=on that when selected,
    posts back and populates a second dropdown. the 2nd dropdown takes a
    while to load, giving the user time to start typing in other fields
    before the screen refreshes. i would like to disable any user input
    during this time, and possibly even display a "please wait" message.
    is there any way to insert some client side javascript that would fire
    before the postback, that would disable the user from typing or
    display a wait message ?
    thanks!
