Displaying Progress on An ASP Page

sam
Hi - I have an ASP page - that will be making about 7 calls to a
database.

What I want is to show progress to the users so that they can tell each
database call is in progress.

The asp calling page works fine, but it only displays when the entire
process has been completed.

What I want is to be able to show dynimically - step 1 done; step 2
done; etc.

Any thoughts?

Did you try Google?

I have tried quite a few of the suggestions on various search engines, and
they all work correctly in Firefox and Opera, but the moment I try it in
Internet Explorer, IE does not render the page until it is complete, even
though my ASP page uses

Response.Buffer = True

and

Response.Flush

Is there a way to trick IE into rendering the page?

You'll want Response.Buffer = False

You should also avoid tables IE will often deffer rendering until all the
table is received.

Sending a series of DIVs should work.

Along with what Anthony said, try also this:

A progress bar made with a line of images (colored squares or something like
that), each one with an id.
Just before each Response.flush, send some scripting code, that will change
the src for each image, like a square with a diferent color.

This should work.
