Dataview Loader

Content Type: Widget
Categories: Utility,User Interface


When you retrieve large amounts of data, especially with integrations, it takes a while for the pages to load, and the Users can't see or do anything. Mendix shows a loader until ALL data is retrieved, and only then it shows the complete page. Wouldn't it be better if we could show the User part of the page as it loads, and then the rest once the retrieve over integration is complete? This widget allows you to show the User parts of the page directly data is retrieved, with individual elements showing a loader.
