CPAINT can be configured to use synchronized connections. This means that your JavaScript application will wait until has returned.

Please note that some browsers (among them MSIE and Firefox 1.x) will freeze completely until the response has been received when using synchronized connections. Unfortunatelly there is nothing we can do about this.
Of course this limits the use of synchronized connections severely, so be advised not to use sync'ed connections if there are other options.

CPAINTs default behaviour is to use asynchronous connections (hence the name AJAX).
