Mobile wait/busy cursor?

Hi all. I have a simple Titanium Mobile application that pulls in an RSS feed. I would like to have the normal wait or busy cursor display - is there an API call to trigger this icon, or do I have to replicate it with something like an animated GIF?

I looked through the API guide, forum, and KitchenSink examples but could not find a solution.

Thanks in advance.

  • Check out the activity_indicator.js in the Kitchen Sink for some examples.

    You can also look at the showIndicator and hideIndicator functions in app.js which will give you a Tweetie 2 style indicator. That's the type of indicator the YQL + Flickr example in the Kitchen Sink is using when it displays that loading message in the middle of the screen.

  • Dan, excellent. I was looking for "wait" and "busy" and did not think of searching for "activity". Thank you!!
