A GMail-like "Loading" Notifier


This one is an oldie, but it's a goodie.

Ajax apps do stuff behind the scenes, so as developers we need to make a diligent effort to keep users notified with the current status of their requests. One of the quickest and easiest ways is to display a loading message whenever an process is running in the background. We've all seen GMail's Loading message on the top right corner of our screens when we're searching for mail and you can easily add that same functionality to your apps using the code from Point Writer.
