Different browsers handle the delay between load start and load complete in different ways. Any attempt to display a "Loading page" message will have to be written for client-side execution (in JavaScript) and will have to adapt itself to the user's browser.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

Hello,
which jsf implementation do you use? Many implementations have such components...

Hello,

While requesting for the jsf page you can call a javascript function in the onsubmit or any other event..display the preload message inside the model panel.while completing the request it ll close the model panel using another javascript oncomplete event.

i ll give a sample code

I think you don't get my goal. My JSF page (based on Facelets) needs some seconds to load completely and this is not an user friendly thing!
I would like to show my end user a preloading message during these seconds.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
