Gridview: waiting after click

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by gianfranco dalfiume, Nov 15, 2007.

  1. Hi all, i'm new to this newsgroup.
    This is my problem: i have a form with a GridView. The first column of the
    grid is a ButtoFields (image type) column, with some code to manage the
    request for the click (it computes a long, time consuming query). I need to
    put something to tell the user that "something is going on" after he click
    the ButtonField. A solution could be changing the browser cursor to
    hourglass, OR change the clicked image to another, like "working..." OR
    display a popup that closes when the query is finished.

    The problem is that i'm a noob in asp programming :(

    What is the simplest thing i can do?

    Thanks in advance.

    Look into the AJAX UpdateProgress control - that should do it for you

    You can use an ASP.NET AJAX UpdatePanel with an UpdateProgress control
