We are building web-pages which have a number of RadControls, each placed in UpdatePanels (not RadAjaxPanels)

Sometimes, the time to process a user action takes so long that
1. The user doesn't know if the app is working or not
2. The user may make another action, before the first completed. This seems to cancel the first action, which I assume is how Ajax works.

To solve this, I would like an indicator that shows that there is progress going on. I want the indicator to be "global" for the entire page, not associated with a particular RadControl.
Also, while the user action is being processed, I want to prevent the user from making another action before the first has completed.

Any ideas how I should do this? It is not an option to switch to RadAjaxPanel.

Thanks!
/Fredrik

Hi Fredrik,

Does using ASP.NET AJAX UpdateProgress control an applicable solution for your particular case? It can be used with MS UpdatePanels to indicate that ajax request is in progress. Review the online resources pointed below for more details:
