I have an application that uses Ajax.updater. As it runs over the
internet sometimes the response can take 10 seconds, by which time
the user thinks that it did not work so I would like to show a
message as soon as the link is clicked to fire the Ajax request. I
am however befuddled.
If I set the innerHTML of the div with the message, it wipes out the
form that needs to be sent.
If I use onSuccess, it takes too long.
Just copy pasted what we use @ http://pastie.org/818221
We use http://blog.var.cc/static/growl/ to show errors, but you can
leave out that section. Just put a div with the loading image
somewhere in your document and set its style to "display: none;". The
code I posted will work for every Ajax request you do, so you have a
nice and generic solution there. How you make the loading indicator
look is completely up to you.
