What is the best way to show a loading spinner while the app is waiting for a response from the server?
Can this be done programmatically? So that I don't have to add the load spinner in the xml file?
ProgressDialog progress = new ProgressDialog(this); progress.setTitle("Loading"); progress.setMessage("Wait while loading..."); progress.setCancelable(false); // disable dismiss by tapping outside of the dialog progress.show(); // To dismiss the dialog progress.dismiss();
ProgressDialog.show(this, "Loading", "Wait while loading...");
By the way, Spinner has a different meaning in Android. (It's like the select dropdown in HTML)
