Property value

A string that contains HTML markup and text that explains what is happening, such as “Creating a new Web site…”.


The markup for a progress page typically references an animated image (such as a rotating gear assembly). Near to this image are two HTML span elements.

The first span element receives the markup held in the LeadingHTML property. The string in the LeadingHTML property might include the text of a brief description of the operation in progress.

The second span element receives the markup held in the TrailingHTML property. The string in the TrailingHTML property might include text that begins “Please wait…”
