As subject, when the form is submitted (file upload) i display an progress bar image (hidden image becomes visible), but the image is not animated.
After some googling it seems that IE stops animating the Gifs when a request is sent.

So what is the workaround?


here is the code (unecessary html code removed):
<div id="uploadprogressbar" style="display:none"><img src="images/progressbar.gif"></tr>

<input name="filename" type="file" />&nbsp;<input type="submit" name="upload" value="Upload Image" onClick="document.getElementById('uploadprogressbar').style.display='';" />
