Message Display While Page Loads

Question:

I have an ASP application that retrieves several rows from a database using ADO. For those users who have a slower connection, I would like to know if there is a way to dynamically let the user know the progress on the retrieval. What is the best method to do this?DHTML, JavaScript, or ASP?

Answer:

When designing how your application will display information to users, more is not always better.It is generally regarded as good interface design when applications display information in clearly understandable groups. Rather than dumping everything out at once, consider providing the ability to filter or group your information to users.

This will do at least 4 things for you:

  1. The users will probably understand the information better.
  2. Because you display less information on each page, the application appears faster.
  3. Your problem of how to display a “progress bar” simply disappears.
  4. You’ll be regarded as a designer of top-quality Web-applications and user-interfaces.
