NotesIn9 142: Adding a Please Wait to XPages

In this show it’s back to XPages and demos!  I will do a quick recap on the last show as 141 seemed REALLY popular but then it’s back to work.  In this show I demo a quick tip on how you can use CLIENT SIDE JavaScript to show the user the server is processing.

 

UPDATE:

Fredrik Norling (@XPageDeveloper)  tweeted me a link to an OpenNTF Snippet designed to handle Partial Refreshes:

Also, Eric Tomenga sent me a nice email with even another solution.  This one looks like it uses the Ext. Library.

I actually did look for a jQuery version as well since I’m using this inside the Bootstrap project.  I couldn’t find one but I’m sure there’s something out there.

I do love having options.
