I know that there is no (for now) possibility to add text to waitingbar so I did some workaround for this:

var label = new RadLabel();
label.Text = "some test";
label.TextAlignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleRight;
waitingBar.EnableTheming = true;
waitingBar.RootElement.ElementTree.ThemeName = "Breeze";
waitingBar.WaitingBarElement.Value = 0;

But it looks ugly and also waitingbarelement is mostly hidden by the text.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Maybe there is better workaround.

Hi Jose Mejia,

Thank you for writing.

Actually, it would be better if you add a TextPrimitive element instead RadLabel control. Please consider the following code:
TextPrimitive textElement = new TextPrimitive();
textElement.Text = this.radWaitingBar1.Name;
textElement.Alignment = ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter;
textElement.ZIndex = 100;

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Best wishes,
