Hi @Svante, nothing happening for me yet with the LoadingSpinner property.

How did you make something happen?

Hi @Meneghino! Nothing really. Got this spinner-not-so-sure-what-to-call-it by set LoadingSpinner.Controls or LoadingSpinner.Data. Seems to be same same. Didnt do anything else, I think..

Thank you @Svante, nothing happened when I set the property to LoadingSpinner.Controls or LoadingSpinner.Data.

Nothing appeared anywhere, not when refreshing data sources or at any other time.

I guess we have to wait until this property gets activated, hopefully soon.

You get nothing? Strange. To explain a little more what I get and when; the app I work with now is 6 pages / screens and I have some [Back]-buttons with Back(Fade)-function and [Next]-buttons with Navigate(nextpage; Fade). The LoadingSpinner is set per page and the spinner appears when I use any of the Back/Next buttons. If I set it back to LoadingSpinner.None the page just shifts and no loading spinner appears. You did see the attached photo in my last post right?

Understood @Svante, thank you.

Let's then wait and see when they actually release the feature.

Is it available yet or not?

The workaround works and is actually more adjustable to fit the needs of what you want it to display a load symbol for then what the stock option is proposing.

I get a nice loading spinner (and can set the background with the background image to make it look nicer) when I'm initially loading a page (can't see it in editor mode, have to actually navigate to the page to see it) when it's set to DATA.


I want the CONTROLS however and I can't seem to get anything out of that.  I may try the work around, but I don't like adding more to an already busy screen.

Does this feature work?

I have created an Canvas App and set the property for loading spinner to Controls and still does not have any effect on my screens.
