Looking for a "Please wait..." or "Working..." form with animation

Post by kerbob » Tue Jul 25, 2017 7:17 am

I've got a process that takes about 15secs after a user clicks OK on a form. Instead of just seeing nothing, I'd like to present the user with a form that shows "Working.. please wait." with a spinning gizmo of some kind so they know something is still going on.
I don't need anything as sophisticated as a progress bar, but a fake progress bar would be perfectly acceptable.

Anyone know of a good technique for achieving this?

Several ways you can do this, but maybe worth having a read over:-

Look at the progress bar, or the job button.
