How to use:

  1. Install the package via NuGet: <pre>Install-Package BusyIndicator</pre>

  2. Add resource call to App.xaml: <pre><code><Application.Resources> <ResourceDictionary Source="pack://application:,,,/BusyIndicator;component/Theme/Default.xaml"/> </Application.Resources> </code></pre>

  3. Add a reference to the library in your view: <pre>xmlns:busyIndicator="https://github.com/Peoky/BusyIndicator"</pre>

  4. Create a BusyMask on top of main view: <pre><code><busyindicator:BusyMask x:Name="BusyIndicator" IsBusy="False" IndicatorType="Dashes" BusyContent="Please wait..." >

       <... MAIN VIEW GOES HERE... >


  1. Bind or Set IsBusy property:

How to change indicator colors:

Indicator colors can be changed now, All you have to do is overriding the colors on your Window, UserControl or even BusyMask resources as following: <pre> <Window.Resources> <SolidColorBrush x:Key="IndicatorForeground" Color="Orange" /> <SolidColorBrush x:Key="IndicatorBackground" Color="WhiteSmoke" /> </Window.Resources> </pre>

You can also use gradients:

<pre> <LinearGradientBrush x:Key="IndicatorForeground" StartPoint="0.5,0" EndPoint="0.5,1"> <GradientStop Offset="1" Color="#eaafc8" /> <GradientStop Offset="0" Color="#654ea3" /> </LinearGradientBrush> </pre>


Not all indicators have background, so that change background might not affect all indicators.
