Can some one suggest a solution for my scenario

Hi All,

We have a issue with webdynpros executed using IE10 and working with SAP with that.

The issue is that when ever some thing is getting executed the image which comes like spinning wheel is not coming and SAP suggests us to totally upgrade which is a 6 month project and we are not ready for that as of now.

The component is getting executed fine and data is being rendered into to ALV and displayed perfectly fine , but when it takes little mor etime for getting data then user doesn't even know if it is processing or if it is hanged as there is not spinning wheel showing the progress.

So i am trying to resolve this using a Image of Spinning wheel which i wanna make visible when some input is entered and a button is clicked to get the data and when data is extracted and ALV is filled i want to make the imageĀ  invisible. I tried creating events one for making visible and another for making image invisible but only the last event gets fired as all the code is in same method of DISPLAY button.

Is there any way i can achieve this kind of scenario, please suggest as I have already exhausted all the ways i knew.

    Hi Phani,

    The phase model is preventing the image from being both shown and then hidden in the single action. An alternative to a loading image is to give the users a popup confirmation message like "Please be patient...". Another option would be to set a TimedTrigger when you first display the loading image to hide the image after a certain period of time has elapsed, though you would have to guesstimate the amount of time needed.

      Hi Amy,

      I already tried this scenario, where i created two events and Component controller and VISIBLE and HIDE adn then in my action of the buttonĀ  i first call the VISIBLE event and then get the data and bind it and once its done i am calling the HIDE event .

      But it is not happening and before making the spinning wheel visible it hides it as HIDE evnt fires as all are in same action.

    Hi all,

    is it a problem with your browser version (IE10), since with Firefox ESR 17 or IE8 I always do have the spinning wheel while the browser is waiting for response.

    Try it with another browser. If the version IE10 is the problem, you can try to use an "user agent switcher (add-on)" (if you have to use IE10 and cannot downgrade to IE8) to tell the server that you are an IE8. There are several add-ons for the firefox browser; there have to be some too for the IE.

      Hi Anurag,

      No thats not the issue actually we went for a upgrade and thats started this issue and SAP suggested us that we need to go for a full upgrade in order to fix this issue of IE10 which we dont want to do at this point of time keeping in mind many other issues.

      Thats the reason we are looking for a temporary solution till we go for upgrade at thanks giving week end.
