[DevExpress Support Team: CLONED FROM T294618: WPF Report Designer - How to show the wait indicator when loading a report / opening a document]
Do you have solution regarding this issue:
So I am looking something where I keep the wait indicator on the main Window and for every operations like loading a report or making a call to the database... ?
Please accept our apologies for the delayed response. Our WPF End-User Designer does not provide the functionality that allows showing a Wait indicator for all long operations. So, some additional time was required for us to look for an alternative solution for this task.
The best way to accomplish this task is to implement a custom report storage that will display a wait indicator while the report is loaded. Also, it is possible to enable the Wait indicator for a diagram control that is used by our WPF End-User Designer to render the report's surface. We have prepared a sample project that demonstrates this solution in action. You can find it in the attachment.
Let us know if you have any further questions regarding this scenario.
