    wait msg in java script(hour glass)

    I have been using a javascript code to display a "Please wait..." message on screen but it seems to work in some instances and not in others.
    Please assist me with javascript code that works in all instances

    Issue 1:-
    it doesnt pops up with d wait msg ven v click on buttons..
    the buttons are not submit buttons.. instead on clicking dat button it calls a fnformsubmit() userdfnd funtion..

    Issue 2:--
    even after d response cums the wait msg window doesnt close.. it hangs in d backgrnd..

    The foll code is used in the footer.jsp file... Please assist...

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/os/jquery-1.5.1.min.js" ></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/os/jquery-ui-1.8.14.custom.min.js"></script>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="/js/os/jquery-ui-1.8.14.custom.css">

    <script type="text/javascript">

    for (var i = 0; i < document.links.length; i++) {
    var attrib = document.links[i];
    if (attrib.addEventListener) {
    attrib.addEventListener('click', attachModalDialog, false);
    } else if (attrib.attachEvent) {
    attrib.attachEvent('onclick', attachModalDialog);

    function attachModalDialog(evt) {
    //alert('for Click event.');

    modal: 'true',
    title: 'Please Wait...',
    width: 400,
    height: 300,
    closeOnEscape: false
    return true;



    <div id="ModalDialog" style="display:none;">

    Server side process is in-progress.

    Please speak English - I do not follow what you are saying. You say that it works in some instances but not in others. Please give examples of both.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

    What is ModalDialog? You did not declare it anywhere. Or did you mean
