Message While Posting

Recommended Posts

I am having trouble getting getting a message to pop up while a page is posting to another page. I disabled the submit button when they click it and I need a message to pop up on the page that says Processing or something. Does anyone know a way to do this.

I'm guessing it would have to be done with some sorta javascript when the button is pressed.

If ya google for javascript popups there should be a ton of examples. You'll just have to hook it on the OnClick for the submit button I suppose. Though I would not be sure how to close it when the page is done processing the request.... Might have to javascript that and when its done processing send a cmd or variables to the currently pop'd up window?

you want to use JavaScript and CSS - this should probably be moved to one of those forums.

create a css styled box containing your message and give it a z-index (layer) property on top of the rest of your page and also set it's display property to "none"

then, w/ javascript, onSubmit() when you are also getting rid of the button, change the display property back to "block" so it shows the box. whola!

something like this:
function message(){
document.getElementById('messageBox').style.display = 'block';

z-index: 2;
display: none;
border: 1px #333333 solid;
padding: 5px;

<div id='messageBox'>
Please wait while your form is being submitted.

<form action="" method="post" onSubmit="message()">
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">
