Progress window in webtemplates

Hi Experts,

i got an issue and i think it could be used in web. Sometimes i navigate within web templates by using command urls. For examlple change drilldown, change characteristics in rows. My problem is that the templates are starting to run after starting my command urls BUT there is no hint that the template waits for data. A progress or "loading" window is missing. Yes javascript can be used but the problem is that all solutions did not work. Anytime javascripts start and finish before the bw server has finished. Did someone has fixed a similar issue?

Regards,

Adem

    Hi Adem,

    if you fire your commands use javascirpt like

    show_progres_window();

    which will set the display proberty of a DIV to 'visible'.

    In your bw-webtemplate use

    <body onLoad="close_progres_window()">

    this should set your DIVs display to none.

    Kind Regards,

    Alican

    Adem,

    I may not be understanding your question entirely, but I thought I would give you an example of something we did to see if it helps you.

    We had a need on certain web pages to pop-up a 'Loading' type of message on the initial rendering to let the user know that the page (or frame in a page in our case) was not complete yet. This was because they might see portions of the page filled in and not be aware that other things were still running. We thought a message would help the awareness of this.

    What we did was to add a SPAN area to the page with a Z-INDEX=99 -- when set to visible, it would show a "Please Wait...Your Request Is Being Processed' type message with an animated 'Loading' image available in one of the delivered MIME directories.

    To turn this off, we added to the BODY tag of the page a call to a JavaScript function on the ONLOAD condition. Within this function, we had the statement below to make it hidden:

    document.all.SAPBWProcessBoxSpan.style.visibility = "hidden";

    This gave us the desired effect that we were looking for. Not sure it fits exactly for you, but maybe it will give you some ideas. I recommend looking at www.dynamicdrive.com for ideas around DHTML type pop-ups.

    Good luck... Jody

    Was this resolved? I'm looking to do the same thing, but haven't found out how I need to change my web templates to include this everytime I navigate.
