    coldfusion.window.show / .hide not sequencing...

      Folks,
      I'm using 2 cfwindows; one as a 'please wait' screen, another as a data screen. Both are defined so they do not show on window load. Right now, I'm sequencing these in javascript like this:

      <a href="
      javaScript:ColdFusion.Window.show('winMap');
      javaScript:ColdFusion.Window.show('winBusy');
      javascript:ColdFusion.navigate('test.cfm', 'winMap');
      javascript:ColdFusion.Window.hide('winBusy');
      ">click</a>

      The data page takes 3+ seconds to load. However, when I run this the winBusy page never shows. If I remove the last hide, it does show. So, apparently it *is* loading, but for some reason the javascript does not allow any time for the browser to refresh.

      Any ideas how to tell the browser to update between function calls?
