Display a Progress bar while loading content in a DIV using jQuery

Sometime back, I had written an article on Loading pages in DIV using JQuery. A user mailed back asking if it was possible to display a progress bar while the DIV loads its content. Well yes it is possible as shown here:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<
head runat="server">
<
title>Display Progress</title>
<
script src="Scripts/jquery-1.3.2.js"
type="text/javascript"></script>
<
style type="text/css">
.divPage
{
width:300px;
height:200px;
}
</style>

<
script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
$("#imgProg").show();
$('#LoadPage').load('Default.aspx', function() {
$("#imgProg").hide();
});
});
</script>
</
head>
<
body>
<
form id="form1" runat="server">
<
div>
<
div id="LoadPage" class="divPage"></div>
<
img alt="Progress" src="progress.gif" id="imgProg"
visible="false" />
</
div>
</
form>
</
body>
</
html>



As shown above, we make use of the a gif image to display progress while the Default.aspx page loads. Observe that progress.gif is set to visible=false.

The above answer does not answer the original question. They didn't ask how to show a loading icon--they asked how to show the load progress in a progressbar
