Displaying "Please Wait" and animated gif when server-side long process takes place

In my web application, I have a search screen coded in ASP.Net. The Search process takes lot of time. So, I need to show a wait page informing the user that "Search is in progress. Please wait" along with an animated gif. I have placed a div in the search page which contains the message and animated gif. I hide the div by making "display: none" in the onload function of the body tag.

On click of the Search button(type = Submit), I call a javascript function that shows the div containing the wait page. In the serverclick of the Search button, the data records are fetched from the db and displayed in a grid in the page.

The problem is that on click of the Search button, when the serverside code is been executed, the animated gif stops animation as the server side process is taking place. I want the animation to continue, so that the user gets the feel that the search process is taking place.
