        mc:Ignorable="d"
        Background="{ThemeResource ApplicationPageBackgroundThemeBrush}">
        <Grid>
          <notification:SfBusyIndicator IsActive="True"/>
        </Grid>
    </Page>
    // Creating an instance of the BusyIndicator control.
    SfBusyIndicator busyIndicator = new SfBusyIndicator();
       
    // Activating the SfBusyIndicator.
    busyIndicator.IsActive = true;

The BusyIndicator control provides 7 predefined animation types like DottedCircularFluent, DottedCircle, DottedLinear, and so on. Users can select any one of the animation types using the AnimationType property.

<notification:SfBusyIndicator IsActive="True"
     AnimationType="DottedCircularFluent">
</notification:SfBusyIndicator>
SfBusyIndicator busyIndicator = new SfBusyIndicator();
busyIndicator.IsActive = true;
busyIndicator.AnimationType = BusyIndicatorAnimationType.DottedCircularFluent;

Adding Content in BusyIndicator

The BusyIndicator control provides option to set the content that indicates the busy status of the control to the users by using the BusyContent property.

<notification:SfBusyIndicator IsActive="True"
     BusyContent="Loading">
</notification:SfBusyIndicator>
SfBusyIndicator busyIndicator = new SfBusyIndicator();
busyIndicator.IsActive = true;
busyIndicator.BusyContent = "Loading";

<notification:SfBusyIndicator IsActive="True"
     AnimationType="DottedCircularFluent"
     BusyContent="Loading">
</notification:SfBusyIndicator>
SfBusyIndicator busyIndicator = new SfBusyIndicator();
