    We've had a nice loading overlay working for awhile now, however the app.showLoading() appears to be applying some new dark/tinted affect on Android devices after our latest 2014 Q1 Kendo update.  It currently does not do this on the Android simulator and/or iOS devices...  As a result, I can't identify what is causing this dark/tinted behavior.  I already have a white/light overlay with an opacity of .8 that I want to use.

    Does anyone know what style and/or settings I could apply to disable this on Android?

    See the screenshots...

    Hi Bill,

    The problem is caused by the incorrect z-index properties set on the elements. As it is a problem caused by the PhoneGap/Cordova engine, we cannot workaround it. The only viable solution is to turn on the hardware acceleration of the problem, which from our experience so far fixes the issue.

    Thanks Kiril.  Enabling hardware acceleration fixed the issue.

    Are there any issues with enabling hardware acceleration that I should be aware of before releasing this to production?

    Hi Bill,

    I cannot think of any particular issue that is caused by the enabled hardware acceleration. But if you stumble upon anything please do not hesitate to contact us.
