    I am currently using the RadAjaxLoadingPanel as a busy indicator.  This is all working great. 

    However, I was asked to display status messages telling the user what is happening (as the busy indicator is displaying).

    I added a Label in the RadAjaxLoadingPanel, like so:

    <telerik:RadAjaxLoadingPanel ID="RadAjaxLoadingPanel1" runat="server">
      <asp:Label ID="progressLabel" runat="server" Text="Doing something...." />
    </telerik:RadAjaxLoadingPanel>


    My question: is there any way to update the progressLabel text while I am carrying out the various steps in my code-behind file?  I carry out about 5 specific steps and would like to inform the user what step the process it on.

    Hello Daniel,

    The desired functionality could not be achieved as the LoadingPanel shows on the client when the Ajax requests starts and closes when it ends on the server. As it shows on the client it could never knows what exactly happen on the server so its content could not be updated in the mentioned way.

    Is there a way to achieve a similar functionality as described in the original post using other telerik controls?

    Hello Daniel,

    You could suggest using simple Label or TextBox. See the forum post for more information:
