CHunky Universe of Vigourous Astonishing SHarepoint :)

Loading notification

When you load some data with ajax, you will probably want to show the users in some way, that data is loading. To show the text “loading…” would be enough. Another, very common way to do it to show a spinner, a rotating image. In sharepoint we can use the built-in gif which can be found in /_layouts/images/loading16.gif. Well, it is actually not so good, because this image is not so beautiful. A better way is to create your own gif image which is exactly suited for our needs. Or even better: don’t use any images. Use the light-weight javascript library called spin.js for creating spinners. It is fully customizable, compatible with older browsers. You can customize it interactively on the spin.js homepage.

var opts = {
  lines: 12, // The number of lines to draw
  length: 8, // The length of each line
  width: 5, // The line thickness
  radius: 10, // The radius of the inner circle
  color: '#000', // #rgb or #rrggbb
  speed: 1, // Rounds per second
  trail: 34, // Afterglow percentage
  shadow: false, // Whether to render a shadow
  hwaccel: false // Whether to use hardware acceleration
var target = document.getElementById('foo');
var spinner = new Spinner(opts).spin(target);
