    Display Image/Message While Searching
    I have a search bar on my site. After the users clicks it, I go and try to find what they are looking for. While I am doing that, I would like to display an image or a message on the screen that says something like "searching through......please wait". Not sure how to do that though.

    Usually this is done with Javascript/AJAX. You might want to fill a div with an animated spinner image and then when the AJAX call has completed the div can be replaced with the search results.

    You'd probably have an onClick for your search button that either shows a hidden div with an animated spinner graphic or you can use AJAX to dynamically load the div. I'd probably just go with a hidden div and then replace it with an AJAX call that produces the search results.
