Common Characteristcs

A spinner is a visual element used to indicate a pending state. Typically this is used when first rendering a component which relies on fetching data from an external source.

Usage Guidelines

  • Spinner should be used when an interface is not immediately available.
  • Spinners provide a visual indication that something is happening.
  • Typically, a Spinner will be displayed until data becomes available or when an error is encountered.
  • The Interstitial component provides a best-practice implementation of this pattern and is recommended when using the Prism library in you app.
