GLOBAL PRE-LOADER on the {{expressions}} will be cool... as some of us have slow connections :)

Yes the inner text works well but if you have 25 {{expressions}} on a page... with image {{expressions}} URL link... mailto links.. then its a pain in the arse to use the INNER TEXT bind... because if i need to edit the page again... or make changes... then i always have to look for crap... so a GLOBAL loader or a pre-build in loader on he expressions will be cool... to have a LOAD or animation ... as we not all have T1 or SUPER fast broad band.. some of us are in Africa.. hahaha... : ) with slow connections...

Hello Reinhardt,
By global preloader do you mean some kind of text/animation replacing every {{expression}} on your page, or do you mean a loader/animation, covering your whole page with some overlay, until all of the data is loaded?

Hi Teodor... i guess whatever would work the best if you have 25 {{expressions}} on a page..and what would make it the easiest to update the expressions
Either just on the complete dataView div or event the complete page... just and idea...

*** i do think from my side... ... this would be the better option
- covering your whole page with some overlay, until all of the data is loaded

Something real easy to implement ... eg.. Maybe at the APP CONNECT ID ...

<body id="OnlineDocuments" is="dmx-app" isloader="true"> //// something like that would be handy.... but only a suggestion.. you guys are the masters of the apps and will know best...

But that is already possible and really easy.
Create your loader container, and style it as you wish, put the loader gif or animation inside it.
Then select it, in app connect add new dynamic attribute > display > show > under sever connect, select state> executing.

This way the loader will be displayed only while the server action loads.
