<activity:Activity IsActive="{Binding IsBusy, Mode=TwoWay}" >
      content here....
      <telerik:RadGridView></telerik:RadGridView>
</activity:Activity>

Follow up the code above but activity control didn't work. I think this control have some conflicts with RadGirdView and RadWindow.  Pls help me.

Hi Vuong,
I have noticed you are using RadGridView.
You may already know that , but in case you have missed it RadGridView has own integrated "is busy indicator". You may control it with the RadGridview.IsBusy property :
IsBusy=true - shows the IsBusy animation
 ..= false - hides it.

Kind regards,

Hi Telerik team

I tried flow up your notice then it is working but it for RadGridView control only. I want apply for all pages and I tried:

<activity:Activity IsActive="{Binding IsBusy, Mode=TwoWay}" >
      <Button></Button>
      <TextBlock><TextBlock>
........
      <telerik:RadGridView IsBusy="{Binding IsBusy, Mode=TwoWay}" ></telerik:RadGridView>
</activity:Activity>

and activity control is working, but in one page have 2 busy indicators: one of Silverlight toolkit, one of RadGridView. I think it's not consistent. So, do you have any recommend for this problem

Thanks for your help

Pavel, is there any plan of having an Activity control from Telerik that is better looking and we can select from different spinning or "Wait" routine. The one from MSFT does not fit into nice looking telerik controls :-)

Hi ..Ben,

Indeed there is a kind of demand for these. We are planning to add such controls to our suite. However we have not started with the implementation yet . So I believe the target will be later than Q1.

Sincerely yours,

One thing I suggest is that you download the latest Silverlight Toolkit controls:

http://www.codeplex.com/Silverlight

The ActivityControl has been replaced by a control called the BusyIndicator. It is essentially the same control, with some updates.

http://silverlight.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Silverlight%20Toolkit%20November%202009%20change%20list&referringTitle=Home

In the meantime, you could could copy the styles of Telerik's wait indicator and the BusyIndicator in Blend, and alter one of the styles to make the look consistent with the other one.

If we choose to use Telerik controls, we don't want to use another controls librarie (the xap size will increase more and more).
BusyIndicator control in Telerik toolkit would be nice...

Hi Stéphane Mitermite,

Thanks for your suggestion. I added it to our To-Do list and it will appear in our PITS system so that other users can also vote for this new control suggestion.
