The days until the upcoming Tabris 1.4 release are numbered and we have another nice addition to share with you.
ProgressBar can be configured to be indeterminate, which puts it in a never-ending activity mode. On iOS, indeterminate progress is always shown with a spinning indicator. The Android client uses a bar-like visualization for that state but it is also very common to see a spinning indicator for a long running operation. In Tabris 1.4, we added a little bit of API to enable that behavior.
To Activate the spinning
ProgressBar all you have to do is to use the
Widgets.onProgressBar( progressBar ).useSpinningIndicator( true );
Now you probably can’t wait to show it off to the users of your Android app… Make sure they don’t see it too often though 😉
Please Note: The feature described above is a preview of the upcoming Tabris 1.4 features. Tabris 1.4 will be available on June 26th 2014. If you want to try it out before the release, just send us a quick request.
