How to display a loading animation while executing a long running task?

Answered
Viktor Szőke asked on December 18, 2020

For example expanding all rows, or switching to a diagram view can take a few seconds on big datasets, meanwhile the application is not responding and feels like it’s frozen.
It would greatly improve the user experience if there would be some sort of loading animation until the operation finishes.

Hello, Viktor,
 
Thank you for writing to us.
 
Currently, Flexmonster does not support showing the loader while the expand or switch to another view is performed.
However, your suggestion sounds reasonable to us, and we have added an appropriate task to our backlog. We will notify you as soon as there are any updates on this matter.
 
Do not hesitate to contact us in case any further questions arise.
We will be glad to help you.
 
Kind regards,
Milena
