Ajax progress at mouse pointer with the help of CSS and JavaScript

There are many situations when we need our progress icon at mouse pointer, if page is quite big then we can not show the progress icon either on top or at bottom, in that case if user is doing something in middle of the page then he can not see the progress or wait icon.

Suppose we have a grid which shows 100 records per page with some edit functionality, it is useless to show the progress icon on top or bottom, there are many such cases in which we need the progress icon on mouse pointer.

you can add a Div either in master page or at page like this

<div onmousemove="SetProgressPosition(event)">
   <!--  all you code should be between these opening and closing Div. -->

Put your update progress anywhere on the page becuase it will be displayed at your mouse pointer so never matter where you are potting it on the page

<asp:UpdateProgress ID="uprogPage" runat="server">
   <div id="dvProg" class="overlay">
     <img id="carimage" src="/Images/Wait.gif" alt=""style="vertical-align:middle" /> 
       Please Wait...

Id of Div dvProg is very important to be the same becuase we will use it in JavaScript to positiong the progress icon at mouse pointer.

Here is the CSS

       border: 1px solid #FFBE9F;
       padding: 5px;
       z-index: 1000;
       width: 100px;
       position: absolute;
       background-color: #fff;
       -moz-opacity: 0.75;
       opacity: 0.75;
       filter: alpha(opacity=75);
       font-family: Tahoma;
       font-size: 11px;
       font-weight: bold;
       text-align: center;

You can use your own CSS but I use this to give a nice look.

Now we need the JavaScript to position the icon at cursor postion

function SetProgressPosition(e) {
    var posx = 0;
    var posy = 0;
    if (!e) var e = window.event;
    if (e.pageX || e.pageY) {
        posx = e.pageX;
        posy = e.pageY;
    else if (e.clientX || e.clientY) {
        posx = e.clientX + document.documentElement.scrollLeft;
        posy = e.clientY + document.documentElement.scrollTop;
    document.getElementById('dvProg').style.left = posx + 20 + "px";
    document.getElementById('dvProg').style.top = posy - 20 + "px";    

We set everything to show the progress at mouse pointer, the nice thing with this code is that our progress will always be with us wherever we move our mouse on the page.
