Dialog box that shows processing in progress

Post

I have a script that results in the filtering and sorting of a large amount of information and portal refreshing.  The process can take quite a bit of time (a few seconds to up to 30 seconds or so).  While the process is underway, there is no real way of knowing it is continuing and the user may try to undertake activities before the processing is complete.  Is there a way to script a dialog box while this process is ongoing to show that the system is "thinking" or processing without interrupting the process itself and then close itself when done?  For example, as the process is underway, it would be great to show a dialog box with a timer or just the fact that "...processing in progress...".
