Hi,

 

I was wondering if it is possible (and how ;)) to only show a loader if (for example) an API call exceeds a certain amount of milliseconds. Something like this:


if (datanotyetready) {
   <Loader />
}
else {
  // Render a grid or something
}
I expect that I have to do something with an animation, but couldn't figure it out...

Hi Pieter, 

Yes this can be achieved by conditionally rendering the Loader.

I've created an example which showcases how to show the Loader if one second has passed since a certain action (in this case a button click) and if a certain data array is empty. The Loader will disappear when the data array is filled in:

Hope that this example can give you an idea of how to achieve the desired case.
