Indeterminate Busy Indicator freezes while calling and invoking domain service load operation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a silver light application, there when ever I call some domain service and get data the showing busy indicator freezes for a fraction of second and resumes its move.

    Obviously the data coming out as service call is large as 10000 entries in list.

    And again when there is I am updating UI for lot of changes like one by one cell update of a grid, the busy indicator freezes.

    What I feel like the double animation in story board does not go smooth when the UI thread or any other thread is working heavily.

    Can any body share any thought???

    I tried having a GIF, but Silverlight does not support that too.

  • Silverlight? This is the wrong forum.


    But I can say, all your time intensive processing must be on a background thread.

    The progress bar WILL stall if you are working on the UI thread, how else can it update the animation?


    I have posted a WPF example of wait/progress with background workers, in .net3.5 (BackgroundWorker) and .net4 (Task).


    My sample may be WPF, but all the principles and code are the same for both Silverlight and WPF.
