We are using a modal RADWindow as a status indicator while running clientside JavaScript.  When the user clicks a button we are opening a RADWindow and then calling another clientside function that runs for about 3 minutes (we are downloading data of an attached USB based medical device using a local activeX dll).  The RadWindow has an animated gif and some text that tells the user that we are processing data.  In order to get the window to open we are waiting 1 second before calling the script that runs for 3 minutes. 

The window opens fine and the animated gif spins for the 1 second but stops as soon as the second function is called.  The gif will spin again once the second function has finshed.

Is there any way around the gif stalling during the longer java script process?

Hello Greg,

I have just answered your support ticket on the same subject. For convenience I will paste my reply below:

I am not quite sure that the problem is in the RadWindow control - it is basically an IFRAME and behaves just like one. Could you please test the following? Display your page not in a RadWindow but in a standard IFRAME with src set to your content page - see if the animated GIF will be displayed properly. This will show if the problem is in the control or not.
If your page and animated GIF display fine in an IFRAME, but you continue to experience this problem in a RadWindow, please send us a small sample project where we can observe this behavior. We will check it and do our best to help.
