    I would like to have a message display along with the animation to let my users know exactly what is going on. But it looks like I can use EITHER the animation OR text and not both.

    For instance, this displays ONLY my label:

    <telerik:RadBusyIndicator IsBusy="{Binding IsBusy}" HorizontalOptions="FillAndExpand" VerticalOptions="FillAndExpand"
                                  AnimationContentColor="{StaticResource Primary}" AnimationType="Custom">
            <telerik:RadBusyIndicator.Content>
                <ScrollView>
                    <StackLayout>
                        <Label StyleClass="Heading1" Text="{Binding Title}"/>
                        <Label Text="{Binding CreateDateasString}" StyleClass="Small"/>
                        <ui:HtmlTextView x:Name="Desc" Html="{Binding Description}" />
                    </StackLayout>
                </ScrollView>
            </telerik:RadBusyIndicator.Content>
            <telerik:RadBusyIndicator.BusyContent>
                <Label Text="{Binding BusyMessage}"/>
            </telerik:RadBusyIndicator.BusyContent>
        </telerik:RadBusyIndicator>

     

    So is there a way to use the built-in animation in the custom scenario?

    Or, better yet, is there a way to display a text message without using a custom template?

    Hi Brian,

    Currently, there is no built-in functionality that allows you do that, but I can suggest you a workaround.

    You could use a Grid which you holds the ScrollView from the Content of the BusyIndicator. After that add the BusyIndicator and the text you want to show. When your application is busy hide the ScrollView and show the BusyIndicator and the text when the application is not busy hide the BusyIndicator and the text. This way you will be able to use the default animations and a text.

    I have created a public item in our Feedback Portal where you can upvote and follow it in order to receive notifications about the progress on the matter.

    I hope this helps.

    But then I cannot use the Content / BusyContent can I?

    So there's no way to create, in the BusyContent, an instance of the animation? If I could add a control with your animation and then my own label (or whatever else) that would be the best.

    Hello Brian,

    I am attaching a sample project showing you how to use the default animations and text to show that your application is busy.
