Subject Re: [Proposal] Move busy indicator out of mobile swc and into spark swc
Date Thu, 08 Mar 2012 14:09:34 GMT
On our to-do list, which didn't get done, was a spark StatusIndicator.

The StatusIndicator is a skinnable component used to show one of three

* Busy
* Non-Busy
* Error

This is an extension of the BusyIndicator on mobile which is not skinnable.
This component could be used to show the status of loading data. The
developer would set the status to "busy" when loading the data is loading.
When the date is loaded, the status would be set to "non-busy". If there
was an error loading the data the status would be set "error". The error
status could be set in the component and used as a tooltip on the error
