I hope I can explain this right. We have a web application we are working (ASP) and we want the ability to create PDFs for the user. These PDFs can take up to 2 or 3 mins to create and we do not want to tie up the user while the PDF is getting created (the user clicks on a button when they want a PDF of a report)
On another forum, one of the members suggested I use Ajax to create the PDF asynchronously so the user can navigate through the web application while the PDF is getting created. I put some Ajax in my code and I am still have problems. The PDF is getting created correctly but if the user tries to navigate away from the page (we have a menu system on the page that is a series of <a href=""></a>) via our menuing system, the page does not navigate until the PDF is done being created. I can go on the URL line and enter the page I want to navigate to w/o a problem but this is not a valid solution for us.
Does anyone know why this is happening? Or is this a limitatioin of Ajax?
