    wasn't there a BusyContentTemplate planned for the control? The documentation also says so in the header (http://www.telerik.com/help/windows-phone/raddataboundlistbox-features-busyemptycontent.html) but doesn't speak about the BusyContent anymore in the details. And I also can't find it on the control. I use the Mango controls.

    I would need it as I try to load data async on a worker thread and not on UI thread. Because I also use the EmptyDataTemplate it is displaying the "No items" message until the list gets bound when the worker thread is done. But of course the "No items" message would confuse the user here.

    So ideally, I can set the Listbox into Loading/Busy mode and this also hides the EmptyContent message/template.

    That would be a great help ... else I have to implement the empty and loading handling myself again.

    Hi Bernhard,

    The IsBusy and BusyContentTemplate functionality in RadDataBoundListBox has been dropped in favour of RadBusyIndicator - delivered as a standalone control. This has been indicated as a breaking change in the release notes for the corresponding release.

    We have an example in our Demos Application that demonstrates the usage of RadBusyIndicator. You can also refer to the online help contents regardfing this topic here:


    We are going to update the link to the corresponding online help resource that you have pasted so that it doesn't give misleading information anymore.

    Do not hesitate to get back to us in case you have further questions or need assistance.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
