jQuery Ajax request progress indicator events

Ajax requests are handled in 2 parts, the client makes the request to the server, processing happens at the server and the result in sent back to the client, the client decodes the data sent by the server and displays it in the browser.

If the processing activity at the server end is a time consuming one, the user will not be able to guess on what is happening and how long will it take to process the request, since the page does not post back the browser’s progress bar will also be idle.

To provide an indication of the request under progress jquery provides 2 events ajaxStart abd ajaxEnd, as the name indicated these events will get fired when an Ajax request starts and when the request Ends, these events can be used to display a loading information to the user.

The syntax for these events are as follows.
