Hello all,

In my JSP page (we are using struts1.1) I want to display a line "processing your request...." and the dots following the the sentence should move (indicating that some processing is going on in the background..).In the mean time the Action class will query the DB and check for the particular value in the Column.

I want to know how to show the moving dots ? in the JSp?

You wouldn't want to resubmit the page each time you wanted another dot, so you'd have to use JavaScript and DHTML or, perhaps, an animated GIF.
