when multiple iframes, problem with IE progress bar display

I have a web form let's say 'YYZ.aspx'.
It has an iframe in it.
When it loads it shows progress bar in IE this way: loading for page then
again loading for page in iframe.
This part is fine.
Problem is when I put page 'YYZ.aspx' in iframe of another page, let's say
'Home.aspx'.
In short: (page (page in iframe(page in iframe) ) )
Progress bar shows ones (fast), then second time(kind of fast) and then
third time. And this time it never finishes through with progress display.

Question: can I force a progress bar to disappear somehow?
Or there is another option?

thanks,
Oleg

I see.
But can I send a signal somehow that the page is loaded to fake completed
process?

not to my knowledge. It would be browser, and probably even version, dependant.

I'll just blame iframe and IE for this.

Oleg,

Actually a fix for this was posted in this group much earlier by
ad********@hotmail.com. I haven't tried it myself so I don't know if it
actually works or not. Here it is again:
The problem this fixes is where you put some content in an iframe and
the content finishes loading in the iframe but the ie status bar keeps
loading.
I had this problem for quite a while, here is what I did to fix it. I
had one main page that had 2 Iframes that contained the content i
wished to display. With just these 2 iframes on the page I would
itermitantly get the status bar problem. To fix this I created a third
ifram of just size 1 called garbageframe. Then on what ever page I was
going to display in one of the 2 content frames I added :

<body onload="javascript:fixprogressbar()">

where fixprogressbar was a javascript function

function fixprogressbar()
{
top.garbageframe.document.write("");
top.garbageframe.close();
return
}

No more problems
