Loading Decorator

The LoadingDecorator is a container control. The LoadingDecorator displays a loading indicator while its content is loading. Once the content is fully loaded, the loading indicator disappears and the content becomes visible.

The Loading Decorator uses the Wait Indicator control to provide visual feedback during data/content/etc. loading.


The Wait Indicator work within the main application's UI thread. The UI freezes may affect the Wait Indicator animation.
