Hi all,

I have a website that builds a pdf (using FPDF) form a pdf library. Basically it collates pdf's and makes them into 1. When a user collates quite a few they are faced with a blank screen for a given time...somtimes upto 5-10 mins.

What I would like to do is give them either a progress bar to let them know its still working or give them a message that pops up at the start of the process then closes when its finished?

Anyone done anything like this before?
I havent a clue where to start wil it? maybe around the Obj?

Any help or advice greatly accepted as im still in the learning phase of php.

Thanks
Mike
