Changing location of "Processing" message

Changing location of "Processing" message

This option allows a message to display when a serverside request is being processed. Unfortunately the text is displayed in the middle of the table height. So if the table is showing 100 rows, this message is a long way down the table and is not always visible to the user/viewer.

Can an option or a CSS style be set so it shows at the top of the table where it may be more visible?

    FWIW I use this:

    .dataTables_wrapper .dataTables_processing {
    position: absolute; 
    top: 15% !important; 
      background: #FFFFCC;
      border: 1px solid black;
      border-radius: 3px;
      font-weight: bold;

    Adjust the settings as required, particularly "top".
