Hour glass while web app is busy

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by =?Utf-8?B?UGF1bA==?=, Nov 11, 2004.

  1. Just wondering if there is a way to set up a web application where the curser
    turns into an hour glass when the application is busy, for example processing
    a stored procedure on a server that takes several seconds?
    Thanks.

    Paul, in general, all of that is up to the browser.

    Take a look at the following to see how to get the browser to do what you
    want:
