JavaScript + layers can handle that.

Here is a Finnish bank that uses that in their online-service.


Choose one account, and on the next screen is a button called "Visa" (Show).
That triggers an hidden layer with a hour-glass. The layer-code can be found
in this file on the bank's server: /csscripts/layers.js
