Animated gif freeze when window.location.href is set

Hi,

In my login page when the user click the login button he's redirected to another page with javascript using window.location.href.

When the user press the login button a animated gif appear so he knows something is loading but when I change the window.location.href the animated gif stop working.

I found a workaround in IE doing this :

               var loadingFigure = $('#loadingImage');
               var html = loadingFigure.html();            
               window.location.href = returndata.message;
               loadingFigure.html(html);

But is not working in firefox and I have a lot of users that use firefox so I need the busy indicator to continues working.

Anyone have a workaround.

Here my HTML for the gif

                <figure id='loadingImage' class="animationCreateAccount">                    
                    @Resource.TooltipLoading
                </figure>

Re: Animated gif freeze when window.location.href is set

I finally found I work around, I added an iframe, is not the best approach I'm agree but sometimes you need to do some workaround.

Here how I did it.

<iframe id="myIframe" src="/images/busy.gif" title="@Resource.TooltipLoading" scrolling="no" frameborder="0"></iframe>

And the js

 $('#myIframe').attr('src', '/images/busy.gif');
 window.location.href = 'mylocation'       
 $('#myIframe').attr('src', '/images/busy.gif');
