Hello Jim,

You will need to do some low level ajax coding from the client side with the 
onreadychange event. If you're using jquery 1.3 then you can create your own 
XHR object with the xhr callback handler.

To learn more about the ready state check out this link:

You might find what you're looking for with the following ready state:

"3 - Interactive Downloading, responseText holds the partial data. "
