    Animated GIF in MIAW not so animated

    Applied CD Level 1
      My stage has a handler that executes a shell Ping command which unfortunately is not asynchronous, this means the stage has to wait for a response back from the remote computer before it can proceed and that response could take as long as 30 seconds. I thought it would be helpful to popup an MIAW with an animated gif to entertain my users or at least let them know the machine is still alive. Unfortunately, the ping handler running on the stage is preventing the MIAW GIF from animating. I would have thought the MIAW would be immune to loss of interactivity on the stage, anyone know an easy work around? … Unfortunately it’s not worth a lot of effort, a message alone is probably sufficient, but if there’s an easy fix I’d like to try it.
