Using PowerApps Built in Spinner

I know there are several great posts and sites for building custom spinners.   However, I need to leverage the appearance of PowerApps built in spinner with text below it, e.g.

                 Loading Example.png

 

Does anyone know how to call the process which displays this object?

Hi @SteveFeldman ,

No - unfortunately there is no function to control that.

Hi @SteveFeldman ,

On the Screen properties, you have the LoadingSpinner which can either be None, Controls or Data (the last two are what you want to wait for to load).

You also have the LoadingSpinnerColor to make it match your app.

Thank you for the quick reply.  I'm looking to see if this technique can be used during a Patch and to customize the text below the spinner.  Any ideas?

 

@SteveFeldman ,

What text below the spinner are you referring to? (Getting your data?)

Hi @WarrenBelz 

The text may vary by application.  in this case it would be 'please wait while we update your request'

Hi @WarrenBelz ,

 

OK.  I'm switching to plan B - making a component which mimics the spinner.

Hey @SteveFeldman ,
Any chance you could share this component?

Thx in advance!

From what I've been reading, I am no longer utilizing components.  I will use one of 2 techniques:

- Whenever possible I use the LoadingSpinner  property.  The appearance is the Power App default, although you  can control the color 

- If a custom spinner is needed, go to https://loading.io/ and create an animate gif.  Import the gif as a media object, then set its visible property (usually via a variable) to true prior to your data intensive actions, and false after it is complete.
