I want to let users know when an ajax postback is in process.  There are quite a few posts on the subject, pretty much indicating the same solution ...

            <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
            </asp:ScriptManager>
            <script type="text/javascript">
                Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager.getInstance().add_beginRequest(beginRequest);
                Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager.getInstance().add_pageLoaded(pageLoaded);
            </script>

... and ...

<script type="text/javascript">
    function beginRequest(sender, args) {
        //alert("start");
        //window.status = "Please wait...";
        document.body.style.cursor = 'wait';
    }
    function pageLoaded(sender, args) {
        //alert("end");
        //window.status = "Done";
        document.body.style.cursor = "default";
    }
</script>

... This works perfectly when I tab away from a field but not at all is I simply place the cursor in another field.  The Ajax postback, of course, works just fine in either case.

Any ideas on how to fix this ... Been looking but I don't see this problem documented.  Anyone find that it works / doesn't for them?  Also, if I am posting in the wrong place, please advise

Thanks

Hello Antony,

To achieve the desired functionality you could try using the RadAjaxLoadingPanel panel and show it over the controls. I am sending you a simple example which demonstrates that. Additionally more information about RadAjaxLoadingPanel you could find here:
http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/ajax-loadingpanel.html

I hope this helps.

Yup ... that is a different approach and it works just fine for me.
