We were advised by Kendo support to use a kendo.ui.progress control to display on-screen during a save process (which may take 5-10 seconds), but it seems like the Progress control isn't able to display before the save process begins. In fact, it is only drawn after the save process completes, which renders it pointless.
I've mocked up an example here:
It's clear from the display of the button that the delay has occurred (as it's unresponsive during this period). Additionally, if you comment out the line which hides the Progress control, and re-run it, you can see that the Progress control is only displayed after the long process has completed.
So how do we get the progress control to display before the long process begins?
We urgently require a solution to this problem, so would appreciate a recommendation ASAP.
