ASP.NET - Tip - Prevent Flashing on Postbacks

ASP.NET - using page transitions to eliminate flicker on page postbacks

Synopsis: causes browsers / webpages to flash or flicker during a postback to the server. Recently a link posted on directed me to a blog entry which listed several ways to reduce the flashing on postback using page transitions. Unfortunately the transitions will only work for IE4+ browsers. There were two methods I tested that were listed in the blog post and its comments. The method I found to be most effective was one suggested by user Ricaute Jimenez Sanchez:

The method I found to work best:
   <meta http-equiv="Page-Enter" content="Alpha(opacity=100)">

This method also worked:
   <META http-equiv="Page-Enter" content="blendTrans(Duration=0.2)">
   <META http-equiv="Page-Exit" content="blendTrans(Duration=0.2)">
