I have tried to reproduce the problem in a sample project, however, no avail. I am attaching my test project to this replay, can you reproduce the problem on it? Basically, what I've done is to run a custom progress and after the latter has finished to write a text file to the response stream. The area seems to disappear as expected and on subsequent click on the submit button it appears fine.
