"Transaction Processing" Indicator page

I was wondering if anyone knows how those "Transaction Processing" Indicator pages work i.e. little light moving back and forth to indicate that the transaction/query is processing before the result set is displayed?

"Key Man",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

It sounds to me like paging/pagination. Searching the same or JDBC forum with the word "paging" or "pagination" would definitely result in many related threads.

I do not believe that pagination is what the OP inquired about. I'm thinking that he's more after a "please wait" while a long response is processing. Once he changes his display name and clarifies, we'll know for sure.

Hmm.... Agreed. It sounds more relevent to the problem OP inquired.

[Edited]
I am sure he is talking about "pleast wait..." kind of mechanism.
I know where I was that time. I will never post reply while having fun.
Thanks.

I was not inquiring about "pagination"...it is the "please wait" type of mechanism that I am wondering about...i.e. some fancy flashing light like on the Night Rider car "Kit" but on my web application not on my car.

A thread found discussing same.

You can use some appropriate fancy animated gif image. How it sounds?
