My current implementation includes following,

User adds an item, once saved it is redirected to the display form of the same item. I have implemented this requirement using below steps.

  1. On PreSaveAction() redirect to an intermediate form by passing some values using querystring.

  2. On intermediate page i use CSOM to retrieve the ID of latest saved item and again redirect to the Actual item

Now this takes some time while processing and i want to show loading status using jquery or any sharepoint based solution.

Something like this would be great :

enter image description here

Can anybody please suggest me how can i do it?

you can use SP.UI.ModalDialog.showWaitScreenWithNoClose If you want to use the 'Waiting' dialog

function OpenDialog(targetUrl) {
    var waitScreen = SP.UI.ModalDialog.showWaitScreenWithNoClose("Loading", "Please wait");
    var options = SP.UI.$create_DialogOptions();        
    options.url = targetUrl;        
    options.autoSize = true;
    options.allowMaximize = false;
    options.allowClose = true;
    options.args = waitScreen; //pass the reference of the wait screen to the dialog


   var waitScreen = SP.UI.ModalDialog.get_childDialog().get_args();
