I can't think of great examples on the net (comparisons to draw, that is). You've seen the feature before though. You are making an edit to something--say, a setting. And when you make the change, there is a quick transparent modal with the 'loading' circle animation (or a flashing disk or something), and the word 'Saving', or something similar. This appears on screen for maybe half a second, one second? Then it goes away, and there is a fade-out box near the saved feature that says 'Saved', or 'Successful', and it fades out over 5 seconds or something...
So, despite sounding like a teenage girl in the explanation (like, totally), have I explained it well enough?
My question here is, what are implementation ideas/examples for this? I'm looking both at user experience patterns/thoughts, and also implementation thoughts.
Thanks for your contributions!
