      Howdy all:

      When results are coming back to the data table, it says "Loading data..."

      I found where this is set in the datatable-beta.js file:

      /**
      * Message to display while DataTable is loading data.
      *
      * @property DataTable.MSG_LOADING
      * @type String
      * @static
      * @final
      * @default "Loading data..."
      */
      YAHOO.widget.DataTable.MSG_LOADING = "Loading data...";

      Is it possible to set this to something else like an animated .GIF or
      another image file?

      Thanks!

      The DataTable will load into the message box any string that is in MSG_LOADING. If MSG_LOADING contains the HTML for an image, it will show that image.

        The DataTable will load into the message box any string that is in
        MSG_LOADING. If MSG_LOADING contains the HTML for an image, it will show
        that image. Notice that you also have CLASS_xxx variables (they are meant
        to be constants, but JavaScript does not have constants) for each of the
        messages so you can either put an <img> tag into the MSG_xxx string or
        change the CLASS_xxx to a style you define with a background image.
