Hour glass while web app is busy

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:

thanks for the information, looks like it just takes a few lines of java
script.
