Specifically, I have an ASP.Net page that has State and County combo boxes, a text box for search terms and a "search" button. When the user presses the button, the code-behind initiates a search which displays a progress bar (Telerik) and then eventually displays a paged grid with some further selections. This much works, but there are some basic problems with the UI:
(1) When the user presses the search button, the comboboxes, text box and search button need to be disabled. Currently, they remain enabled, which could be confusing to the user.
(2) It can take several seconds before the progress bar actually starts showing progress, so we want a message to be displayed immediately (just text on the screen, not a pop-up), letting the user know that something is happening. I have not been able to get the message to appear.
(3) Once the search is complete, the texts box and search button will need to be reenabled so the user can try another search.
(4) I'll want to add a "new Search" and a "Cancel" button to reset the page or return to the previous page, respectively.
I don't want someone to do this for me; I need to learn how to do it myself. Also, the project is large and requires Telerik controls (as well as other controls) and a database. The client does not want me to give access to the entire project to other developers. So I would like to do this over the phone (or Skype) and we can use LiveMeeting to share my desktop.
I need someone who can speak and understand English well. An accent is OK, but I need to be able to communicate.
