Slow loading UI control

Hey Everyone,

I'm having a problem to do with a slow loading tile service layer from an ARCGIS map control that I have implemented in a Modern Basic Page.

When I click the titlelinks to load my page it takes a few seconds before the control renders.

I can't run my usual wait animation through a backgroundworker as it's on the UI thread and so I'm wondering if anyone had a suggestion on how I could implement a busy indicator or preload the page ahead of time (not sure if possible).

Thanks!

If the control requires time on the ui thread, all other ui operations (including animations) will pause until your control is done loading. There's not a lot you can do about that, other than using a backgroundworker as you suggested.

Thanks kozw, and great job with the project.

I'm going to play with creating multiple ui threads. Hopefully I can create a busy indicator on a secondary ui thread while this control loads.
