My preloader is not displaying in the middle of the screen, can't figure out why not.

Here is my HTML:

Hello Joe,

The RadAjaxLoadingPanel in your scenario is not configured to be centered on the screen. Please refer to:

It's still not working.  I want the preloader to be displayed on the grid or center page.  How can this be accomplished?  Not sure how to do this within the code:
Thanks,
 function centerLoadingPanel() {  
                centerElementOnScreen($get("<%= DashboardPreloader.ClientID %>"));  
            }  
            function centerElementOnScreen(element) {  
                var scrollTop = document.body.scrollTop;  
                var scrollLeft = document.body.scrollLeft;  
                var viewPortHeight = document.body.clientHeight;  
                var viewPortWidth = document.body.clientWidth;  
                if (document.compatMode == "CSS1Compat") {  
                    viewPortHeight = document.documentElement.clientHeight;  
                    viewPortWidth = document.documentElement.clientWidth;  
                    scrollTop = document.documentElement.scrollTop;  
                    scrollLeft = document.documentElement.scrollLeft;  
                }  
                var topOffset = Math.ceil(viewPortHeight / 2 - element.offsetHeight / 2);  
                var leftOffset = Math.ceil(viewPortWidth / 2 - element.offsetWidth / 2);  
                var top = scrollTop + topOffset - 40;  
                var left = scrollLeft + leftOffset - 70;  
                element.style.position = "absolute";  
                element.style.top = top + "px";  
                element.style.left = left + "px";  
            }

Hi Joe,

Did you really try the examples suggested above?

RadAjaxLoadingPanel by default assumes the width and height of the updated control. You don't have to do anything special to achieve that. The IsSticky property must be set to false and the control must not have any width or height.

Here is a working demo which shows how to center a loading panel on the screen. Please replace "~/grid_images/loading.gif" with a valid image of yours and adjust the following numbers:

var top = scrollTop + topOffset - 40;
var left = scrollLeft + leftOffset - 70;

40 and 70 are half of the image's height and width.
