    Hello,

    I'm looking to add a loading or searching feature to my form, for when my users click the next page button it appears as if they are waiting for a search result, where on the next page I show the result, however I would like there to be a 3 second or 5 second loading page or loading icon to show that there is a search being done in the background.

    Do you mean when the user clicks the "Next" button, there will be a countdown before it shows the next page?

    You might want to try the Progress Bar widget. Here's the demo form: https://form.jotform.com/61764205570959

    We'll wait for your reply. Thank you.

    Hi there,
    You’re on the right track. I mean when the user clicks next, it will show a loading symbol or a loading screen of some sort, as if it’s going through a search of a database.
    The progress bar doesn’t help what I’m looking for.

    Best regards,

    Unfortunately, we do not have a widget that can create a loading screen for your form. However, you can try the Global Countdown widget which will auto-submit the form or block the form whenever it reaches the time limit.

    Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.

    Hi there, I see, that’s no problem I appreciate you taking the time to look into this.
    Also, on a different note, is there any way I can prevent the form from jumping, when the user clicks the next page. See the example of what I’m talking about in this link https://cl.ly/2F2I240q170L# .
    The form jumps its position rather than just staying in same position when user clicks next page.
