In IE or Netstacp, when the web page is loading, a small icon on the top right corner in IE or a moving strip on the bottom left cornor in Netscape will be moving until the page is loded. I am wondering, how can I get the similar thing working in applet? What I want it: when the user click a submit button in my applet on the webpage, a small icon on the top right or on the bottom begins moving, like in IE and Netscape, then when the page loding finihsed, the icon stop moving.
I know to use showStatus("") in applet to write some message on the bottom left cornor, but I would like to have an icon to show data is still loading.
I heard these kinds of moving icon is a kind of Java script. Could any one give me a clue how to do this?
