“Please Wait” text for heavy loading task

Please check following sample code to display “Please wait screen” for heavy loading task.

<head runat=”server”>
<title>Untitled Page</title>
<script language = “javascript”>
function showPleaseWait()
document.getElementById(‘PleaseWait’).style.display = ‘none’;

<form id=”form1″ runat=”server”>

<div id=”PleaseWait” style=” text-align:right; color:White; vertical-align:top;”>
<table id=”MyTable” bgcolor=”red”>
<font color=”white”>Please Wait…</font></b></td>

<asp:Button ID=”Button1″ runat=”server” Text=”Button” onmouseup=”showPleaseWait()” OnClick=”Button1_Click”/>


To check this sample add following event in code behind file.

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
for (double i = 0; i <>

Note: here “Please Wait Screen” display logic is on mouse up event, so whenever heavy task started on button click event, “Please Wait…” Message will be displayed.
