How to display standard mobile OS loading animation while invoking service?

  • When I invoke a service, for example a JSDO.read  , I want to show the standard loading/waiting animation while getting the data. How can I do this?

  • Hello,

    You could call the service using JavaScript and add the calls to showSpinner() and hideSpinner().

    If you add a call to a service then browse the .js for your screen (home.js for example), you will see code that calls the service  ( execute() in a try block ).

    I hope this helps.

  • how can i use custom spinner with themes as shown in http://jquerymobile.com/demos/1.2.0/docs/pages/loader.html ?

  • Keep in mind - those spinning widgets will get very annoying for users - if the delay is long.

    Cool look if it's a quick load, but otherwise it could drive them away.

    My 2 cents

  • i just wanted to give it a try to see how to implement such things!

  • Any one got an idea?
