Update Progress & Hiding Updating Content

I have a FormView wrapped in an UpdatePanel which is used to insert new records into the database. When a new record is being inserted, I use an UpdateProgress control to show an animated gif, letting the user know that something is happening. Once the insert is complete, the FormView disappears and a message indicating the record was inserted.

This works fine, but what I'd really like to do is hide the FormView during the insert and only display the gif. Then, once the insert is over, display either the message (if the insert was successful) or the FormView again (if the insert failed). Can anyone suggest a way to do this?

Thank you!

you will need to add an event to the beginRequest event that goes into the dom and hides the form.



then on the endRequest event reshow the form or prompt sucess.


                function BeginRequestHandler(sender, args)
Something like that.

Hold up, there is a much easier way... I was over thinking.


    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
            <asp:FormView ID="FormView1" runat="server" DefaultMode="Insert">
                <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label>
        <asp:Button runat="server" Text="Button" id="Button1" />
    <ajaxToolkit:UpdatePanelAnimationExtender ID="UpdatePanelAnimationExtender1" runat="server" TargetControlID="UpdatePanel1">
            <StyleAction animationtarget="FormView1" Attribute="display" value="none" />                    
            <StyleAction animationtarget="FormView1" Attribute="display" value="block" />

I tried your first suggestion, which worked. But I agree that the second suggestion is a much cleaner and easier way of doing it.

I was a big fan of Firefox.. Now, I don't even like to use it. Seems like every time I start it up I have to update some addin OR the browser itself. And unfortunately the update nag messages are always presented when I start a browsing session. I find this annoying because, typically, when I open a web browser all I want to do is go to a web page. Not update the browser. I can agree that staying current with the latest version could give the best, fastest, safest web experience. But that point becomes mute when I start off every other browsing session with a new update. And mos...
