Best way to show a loading spinner?

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?

Answer Source
ProgressDialog progress = new ProgressDialog(this);
progress.setMessage("Wait while loading...");
progress.setCancelable(false); // disable dismiss by tapping outside of the dialog;
// To dismiss the dialog

OR, "Loading", "Wait while loading...");

By the way, Spinner has a different meaning in Android. (It's like the select dropdown in HTML)
