I watched the video here on how to include a pre-loader graphic while data is being loaded. Works great.
However, I really need to also hide the data container while the pre-loader graphic is displaying; because it contains some static text that doesn't make sense until the data pulls in. How do I accomplish both at the same time, without having to go in and hardcode things?
where loader.gif is some animated gif that shows loading. This will spread the div to the whole screen size. Then using the extended repeater behaviors you can use the "Change Property" Behavior, with on AfterRender event of the repeat region and change the display property of loader to: none.
