hello all,<BR> I have a button, once I click this the APP takes several seconds to run, meantime I want users to see some message that the app is running.<BR>I want to display a Message (in a label) soon after the button has been clicked saying that &#039;Application running....&#039; and once it is complete hide the label.<BR><BR>since the label is a server object, when I placed the above code in the code-behind it did not work.<BR><BR>Function RunAPP()<BR> Label1.Text="&#039;Application running...."<BR> .....<BR> &#039;App Code<BR> .. App Complete<BR> Label1.Visible=False<BR>End Function<BR><BR>Seems like I have to use JavaScript to simulate this. anyone has any ideas?<BR><BR>thanks a lot<BR>Das
