Display spinner until list items are loaded in Angular Listview component

20 Sep 20224 minutes to read

The features of the ListView component such as remote data-binding take more time to fetch data from corresponding dataSource/remote URL. In this case, you can use EJ2 Spinner to enhance the appearance of the UI. This section explains how to load a spinner component to groom the appearance.

Refer to the following code sample to render the spinner component.

        target: this.spinnerEle.nativeElement

Refer to the following code sample to render the ListView component.

let listviewInstance: ListView = new ListView({
    //Bind the DataManager instance to the dataSource property
    dataSource= new DataManager({
        url: '//js.syncfusion.com/ejServices/Wcf/Northwind.svc/',
        crossDomain: true

    //Bind the Query instance to the query property
    query= new Query().from('Products').select('ProductID,ProductName').take(10),

    //Map the appropriate columns to the fields property
    fields= { id: 'ProductID', text: 'ProductName' },


//Render the initialized ListView

Here, the data is fetched from Northwind Service URL; it takes a few seconds to load the data. To enhance the UI, the spinner component has been rendered initially. After the data is loaded from remote URL, the spinner component will be hidden in ListView actionComplete event.

import { Component, ViewChild, ngAfterViewInit, ViewEncapsulation } from "@angular/core";
import { DataManager, Query, ODataV4Adaptor } from '@syncfusion/ej2-data';
import { createSpinner, showSpinner, setSpinner } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-popups';

    selector: 'my-app',
    template: `
    <ejs-listview id='element' #list [dataSource]='dataSource' [width]='300' [query]='query' [fields]='fields' [showHeader]='true' [headerTitle]='headertitle' (actionComplete)='onActionComplete($event)' >
       <div #spinner id="spinner" ></div>
        styles: [`
        #element {
    display: block;
    max-width: 400px;
    min-height: 200px;
    margin: auto;
    border: 1px solid #dddddd;
    border-radius: 3px;

    public fields: Object = { id: 'ProductID', text: 'ProductName'  };
    public headertitle = 'Product Name';
