  • window.plugins.spinnerDialog.show
  • window.plugins.spinnerDialog.hide


window.plugins.spinnerDialog.show([title], [message], [cancelCallback])
  • title: Spinner title (Android only). Optional. (String)
  • message: Spinner message. Optional. (String)
  • cancelCallback: Callback to invoke when spinner cancel event fired (tap or Android hardware back button event). If set, spinner dialog will be fixed, you should explicitly call window.plugins.spinnerDialog.hide. Due to legacy reasons you can provide boolean value (true/false) to set spinner not cancelable. Optional, defaults to false. (Function/Boolean)

  • Windows Phone 8


// Show spinner dialog

// Show spinner dialog with message 
// Note: spinner dialog is cancelable by default
window.plugins.spinnerDialog.show(null, "message");

// Set spinner dialog fixed
window.plugins.spinnerDialog.show(null, null, true);

// Set spinner dialog fixed with callback
// Note: callback fires on tap events and Android hardware back button click event
window.plugins.spinnerDialog.show(null, null, function () {console.log("callback");});

// Show spinner dialog with title and message (Android only)

// Set spinner dialog fixed (cannot be canceled with screen touch or Android hardware button)
window.plugins.spinnerDialog.show("title","message", true);

// Hide spinner dialog

Note: on Android platform, multiple show calls builds up a stack (LIFO) which means hide will dismiss the last spinner added with show call.
