Ok, so Im building an upload form with several inputs for image upload. I've got a hidden animated gif and when submit is clicked the visibility is toggled and the animated gif shows while the uploads begin. In testing this works great with chrome & firefox but with IE the gif animation freezes. The other solution I have come up with uses a small flash animation that is toggled to show. The flash solution seems to work in all major browsers (and you cant upload from iOs anyway which makes flash somewhat acceptable in this case).
Just curious if anyone has tried anything similar and what might be a solution using an animated gif with IE.
There. Someone had to say it. Now someone else can come up with the grownup answer, keeping in mind that browser preferences include the option for disabling animated gifs-- or cycling only once-- and we won't even talk about flash.
