Add Waiting message when the page is loading

By Darrell Harr on 13 Nov 2013
Show a "Waiting content loading" with Icon spinning on page load...... similar to the Ajax yellow spinning message.

Have this work like a popup so the page behind is visible but can't be accessed.

Currently to make this happen I have to bypass the Page Preparation.... then show a popup with the message.... then notify the calling page to refresh the queries... 

Would be nice to be able to show the "Waiting" easier.

Hi,

If your page has a Table Record, you can use List_LateLoad from RichWidgets.
Or you can enclose your page in a IF widget that shows your message, and in the other branch is your page. Then in preparation click in a hidden link that points to a action where you load the data. In the end change the if condition to show the page content and hide the 'loading message'

Cheers,
JA
