HELP! -- Redirection question

Hello all,

I have a page (located at mywebsite/a.asp) that redirects to another page
(theirwebsite/b.asp) located in other server. This other page probably will
redirect to another link again (othersite/c.asp) and finally display the web
page I want the user to see (finalwebsite/d.asp)

What I want to do is, once they click the link (b.asp) located in the a.asp
webpage, to load a "please wait" type of page, like Expedia does while
looking for information; and that "please wait" page should appear until the
redirection process gets to the final page (d.asp)

Since all the pages (after a.asp) are located outside our server (and we
can't access the code in those pages), how can I do that?!? Please be as
detailed as possible or point me where I can find info about how to do this.

Currently we're using ASP 3.0 running on a Win2003 SP1 server machine

Thanks in advance,

you should take a look at asynchronous javascript calls ... i would
suggest you download the prototypejs.org framework and solve this with
an ajax-request...
here is a nice tutorial: http://www.prototypejs.org/learn/introduction-to-ajax

Hello Michal,

Thanks for your response but I'm not familiar with AJAX and there isn't any
examples of how to do what I want to do; is there any other alternative?
(using VBScript or JavaScript) or a URL where I can see examples on how to
do this task?

Thanks in advance,
SB-R

yeah redirect is also possible but you have no chance to show the
loading progress ...
ajax is not difficult .. if you are familiar with javascript its not
a big deal ...
check this http://www.prototypejs.org/api/ajax/request
thats exactly what you need...

Is there a way to get help the way you get it from the Python interpreter (eg, 'help(dir)' gives help on the 'dir' command) in the module cmd.Cmd? I know how to add commands and help text to cmd.Cmd but I would also like to get the man-page-like help for classes and functions. Does anyone know how to do that? Thanks. Sarir

Missing Help Files When I enter "recordset" as the keyword and search the Visual Basic Help index, I get many topics of interest in the resulting list.
