Exporting to Excel takes a long time and I would like to display a message like "Exporting.... Please wait" so the user does not think the web page is frozen. The ReportViewer already has a "Generating Report" message so I assumed it would have a message for exporting. I tried putting the ReportViewer in a RadAjaxPanel and setting a RadAjaxLoadingPanel but no spinning wheel appeared.
 
I am using the latest Telerik Reporting and .Net 4 Framework. Any ideas?

Hi Bruce,

Currently, there isn't a busy indicator for the export operation. If you try to implement a custom one, you will not be able to hide it, as there isn't a notification when the export operation has been completed.

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q1 2013? You can get them from your account.
