I'm looking for some information on how to implement a "Loading..." or "One Moment Please" page while a time-consuming database query returns. I have posted it in here to, hopefully, get an asp.net solution.
I apologize for making this post, but it's one of those things that I just can't think of a good google query to get results back on. Forgive me, but I need some biological brain power. Links to written materials on the topic would be much appreciated.
I'd try and make the bottleneck to be the bandwidth then hard disk I/O but never the processors, so I wouldnt attempt to solve this one that way.
But if you do, possibly you could call a response.flush before querying and send a status bar back, also just warn the user when they click the button and use a "if IsClientConnected" before displaying the results as they might of gone somewhere else.
