Loading indicator with dojo XHR requests


I only recently started using dojo and I am doing numerous ajax calls using dojo xhrGet, xhrPost,..etc. Now I have an animated gif image which i want to use to indicate "loading" to the user. I am not too sure how this can be done. Can someone please advise me on this? here is my code,

dojo.xhrGet({ url: registcarturl, handleAs: "json", preventCache: true, load: function(data, ioArgs) { //DO STUFF WITH data HERE }, error: function(error) { alert("sorry ! an error occurred while adding to the cart with ajax"); } });

How do i get my loading gif file into the interaction? Thank you.


Have a look at dojox.widget.Standby: <a href="http://dojotoolkit.org/reference-guide/dojox/widget/Standby.html" rel="nofollow">http://dojotoolkit.org/reference-guide/dojox/widget/Standby.html</a>

To give you an example, define the widget.Standby

<div jsId="basicStandby1" dojoType="dojox.widget.Standby" target="yourDomTarget">

After calling dojo.xhrGet, show it:
