loadingView.backgroundColor = [UIColor colorWithRed:0 green:0 blue:0 alpha:0.5];
loadingView.clipsToBounds = YES;
loadingView.layer.cornerRadius = 10.0;

activityView = [[UIActivityIndicatorView alloc] initWithActivityIndicatorStyle:UIActivityIndicatorViewStyleWhiteLarge];
activityView.frame = CGRectMake(65, 40, activityView.bounds.size.width, activityView.bounds.size.height);
[loadingView addSubview:activityView];

loadingLabel = [[UILabel alloc] initWithFrame:CGRectMake(20, 115, 130, 22)];
loadingLabel.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];
loadingLabel.textColor = [UIColor whiteColor];
loadingLabel.adjustsFontSizeToFitWidth = YES;
loadingLabel.textAlignment = NSTextAlignmentCenter;
loadingLabel.text = @"Loading...";
[loadingView addSubview:loadingLabel];
