Add ASP.NET Core Spinner Control

Initialize the Spinner using createSpinner method and show/hide the spinner using showSpinner and hideSpinner methods accordingly. Set the target to the spinner to render it based on specific target.

Now, add the Spinner using Syncfusion Essential JavaScript library in ~/Pages/Index.cshtml page.

<div id="container" style="position:center; height: 300px;">
    <p>If you click the <b>Show Spinner</b> button you can create the <b>ASP.NET Core Spinner component</b>  </p>
    <button id="showSpinnerButton">Show Spinner</button>


    var spinTarget = document.getElementById('container');
            target: spinTarget

    // Attach a click event handler to the "Show Spinner" button
    document.getElementById('showSpinnerButton').addEventListener('click', function () {
                setInterval(function () {
                    //hideSpinner() method is used to hide the Spinner
                }, 5000);
