    Waiting while app fetches data from web server

    Hi all,

    What would be the best way to let a user know that my application is currently fetching data from a web server (and hence they need to wait)? I see that Netbeans has both Alert and WaitScreen. Which is more suitable?

    Lastly, how can I make this screen disappear automatically once the data has been successfully retrieved?

    Many thanks.

    A "Please wait screen" is more ideal. We already have multiple discussions on how to implement this.

    Thanks for the links Gopal. I found this Netbeans tutorial really helpful.
