Generally, you can customize and control the appearance of the LoadingPanel. I prepared a sample RadGrid web site to demonstrate how you can move the panel over the initial item on a given event - in your case it can be onscroll
Hope this helps. If you have different requirements or further instructions, please prepare a very basic runnable sample to demonstrate your specific scenario and send it to us.
All the best,
the Telerik team
