table.request() how to get loading please wait to display again

Hi there,

I use table.request() to load data from a CSV file into the grid. Works nice, I then have the same request go through and data re-loaded to the grid, but the 2nd time around, it doesn't display "loading please wait" any suggestions on how I could get that to work?

Plus, how can I call this custom-made?

For instance, if I sort on a big recordset that might take 2-10 seconds, how can I replace the screen temporarily with "Sorting please wait" ?

Actually, this feature ('Loading ...' message) will not be in 2.0 - I will put it back after 2.0, lets say 2.0.1 or 2.1...

Sorry to see this feature go. :-( Thought it was very valuable, especially how one could set their own custom message.

Me too. Sorry to see it go. I have some very large XML datasets and it would be great to display the loading progress.

Oh well ... I can wait (grin).

I agree, a loading message is necessary
no workaround or dates for 2.0.1 or 2.1 ?

If you are using 2.x, the easiest thing to do is define a AW.UI.Label, place it somewhere on the page (mine is on the upper right hand of the grid). Just before I call the table.request, I do:
label.setControlText("Reloading data...");
Then I define a table.response section and change the label:

Got a code example of this?

I have some very large data sets that is taking a bit of time to load. If I could implement what you wrote, it would be GREAT for the end users (that currently have no clue something is actually happening).

Thanks ...
