I have a page that takes a long time to process a SQL query (~30 seconds). What I would like to do is display a message that says "Please wait while this page is loaded".
response.buffer=false is out because there are cases where I use response.redirect.
I have one solution where I go to a loading page and use a meta redirect. This keeps the loading page text on screen while the other page loads. My problem here is that any animated gif (which I would REALLY like to have on this page) does not run...it just stays on the first frame.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
