Please Wait Page

I have an ASP page that loops through about 200 times and each loop takes about 1.5 seconds. I wanted to display a page that said, "please wait while...", similar to the one uses when searching for plane tickets. I have a series of DIV's and Java scripts set up, the only problem I have is when I post to this new page it never displays the please wait page while the loops are running. I displays it at the end very briefly then it display the actual data it should. I was wondering if there was something I have to do to get the server to display the page and then continue to post. Does anyone have any suggestions?


  • I think you have misunderstood ASP. All scripts written for ASP are executed on the webserver BEFORE the actual webpage is sent to the user. What you want is a client-side script written in JScript.
