Hi,

I have developed a database driven web application which when loaded for the first time needs to fetch some heavy data from the server.
I don't want the user to see the white screen for a minute or so before the application actually appears. So i want to show the loading sign showing percentage or a bar which shows that the application being loaded and user knows that application will be there after the loading finishes (eg. just as when we login to gmail, before showing the mails a nice loading sign is there showing the percentage of data processed.)

Can anyone help in this topic. It will be really great help.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Maria,

I read and tried the  help from :
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/ajax-show-loadingpanel-on-initial-pageload.html

But the RadAjaxManager_AjaxRequest method is executing after Page_Load. All my database logic which is building the web page is in the page load. I think this is the reason why the loading symbol is not shown.

I want the loading symnbol to show on the screen as long as the page load is executing.

Thanks for you response.
