Some reports can take a while to generate. You can show a wait message to the user that can then be closed in the afterAjaxCallbackComplete event when the report is ready:

var title = "Creating Report";
var buttons = "none";
var html = "Please wait while the " + e.reportName + " is created.";
var onClose = function () {/*optional JavaScript to execute when the message box is closed*/};

A5.msgBox.show(title,html,buttons,onClose);
