Display Image While Importing

P: n/a
Hi

I am currently creating part of a system which does a simple import of
a CSV file using SQL Server with DTS. The front end to this is a web
based .NET (C#) app. Obviously when the CSV file is large, there is a
delay for the user receiving any feedback from the system. I therefore
want to do what I have seen other systems do and display a gif image to
show the user that something is happening (eg. spinning images etc).

It would be great if someone could help me with this!

Thanks very much

Dave

Are you receiving the CSV file with an XMLHTTP object? If so you can
set it to asynchronous mode, this way the browser's process thread will
not be blocked while it's downloading the file. Attach a handler to the
onreadystatechange event to check the status of the download. This way
any animated gifs will be displayed correctly, meaning they will keep
looping through their animation. Check the www.msdn.com site to look at
the reference for the XMLHTTP object.
