Popup window control

Hi,

I have a little popup window, that runs a query, then writes the query
resultset back to parent window, sometime, this process could take
some time, so, I'd like this little popup window to display something
like "Please wait".
I tried both adding document.write("Please wait ...")> to the top of
the popup window file/script and plain HTML Please wait ... to the top
of the popup, neither displays. How come?

TIA

It's hard to guess without seeing some code.
You're probably not loading the contents of the popup until
the query has returned.

Thanks but that would defeat the purpose. The point is, to display a
msg that it's loading ...
Thus, the msg must display while the loading process starts.
And that's the reason why I place the document.write("Please wait
....") to
top of the script, and yet to no avail.

My thinking is on structured/procedural process while js is oo, hence,
js is not cooperating?
