[code] ASP.NET Busy Box 1.2 (Processing... Please Wait)

Summary: We often need to provide a user message informing the user that their request is “processing”.  Like the hour-glass mouse pointer lets the Windows user know the system is busy processing their last request, I have a simple, clean, and effect solution to providing this on web pages.

Check out the demo - very nice eye-candy to entertain your user while running long running operations like file uploads, webservice calls, etc. [update: failed humor attempt removed]

Mark -
Sorry if my attempt at humor came off wrong. Long running processes like uploads, webservice calls, etc., are often unavoidable. This is much better than what I've done in the past. I'll update the text.

No problem Jon. Your last comment has completely redeemed yourself in my eyes. I appreciate your kind response. Thanks.

After Ajax we all expect to see things like that to stop making requests.

Ran into one problem - making an ajax request pops the box.   Kind of a showstopper for me.
