Have you ever experienced a client coming back and stating their customers are experiencing problems with ecommerce orders not going through...this has happened to me and on investigation (with the help from the WebAssist forum) I concluded that is was due to customers pressing the webpage form submit button more then once (this can happen on webpages where the payment transaction can take a moment to process, thus making the customer think that nothing has happened)....Well...there is a solution and for any of you who own design extender its the Ewok of the WebAssist extensions...may I present...the WebAssist Progress Bar :)
WebAssist Design Extender
Before adding the WebAssist Progress Bar you need to select the code that you wish to apply it to.
The Progress Bar is mentioned many times for complimenting file upload for the WebAssist File Manipulation server behaviour...however if you consider that a file upload is a form element...this means it can be used for any situation that uses a form.
The WebAssist Progress Bar is located via the WebAssist menu on the top of the main Dreamweaver menu bar and under the Forms sub menu.
WebAssist have kindly created different themes for the progress bar so that you can chose from a range of themes that can look good with your website design...I always like the Slate theme using the Bar category as this is nutural for practically any website design.
Here is a more indepth look at what the WebAssist Progress Bar behaviour has added to your code:
Secondly it wraps itself around your form, like so:
<div id="form1_ProgressMessageWrapper" class="blockUIOverlay" style="display:none;">
WADFP_SetProgressToForm('form1', 'form1_ProgressMessageWrapper', WADFP_Theme_Options['Bar:Slate']);
<div id="form1_ProgressMessage" >
<p style="margin:10px; padding:5px;" ><img src="webassist/progress_bar/images/slate-bar.gif" alt="" title="" style="vertical-align:middle;" /> Please wait</p>
