Xamarin forms activity indicator stops animating in android only RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We are using an activity indicator to indicate to the user that some process is going on, but the activity indicator stops  its animation (gets frozen) when some heavy operation is going on the main thread.
    As a fix we tried to run methods in background thread, but this causes sqlite to throw errors like busy , db lock resulting in app crash.
    Is it possible to run the activity indicator (or any other loading popup) independent of the main thread (on background thread)?

    We have tried ACR user dialogs, gif within webview, AndHUD with no success. 
    The BTProgressHUD loader works fine on IOS.
