Hi Tobias.

I used this loading icon, but I have some doubts.
I need let appear the loading while running the procedure in this application. This process spend some minutes.

How can I do this ??

Thanks a lot.

Many thanks. I got the hand of it now. I forgot to install the sql file as a plug in. Newbie mistake

This is quiet confusing. I downloaded the file and it was an pl/sql code.
I did the following. Dynamic Action -> gave it a name ->Event(Before page submit) ->condition(no condition) ->Action(Execute PL/SQL Code) and I copied and paste the pl/sql code. I click on next and got a 500 - Internal Server Error. What I'm I doing wrong?
Great plugin with minor bug.

Great plugin! Many thanks the author for the time and effort.

On the other hand, I have the same issue with other users. The plugin works great in IE, but in Firefox it only shows static image and in Chrome it doesn't show the loading image. Could anyone please show me how to fix this? Thank you.

Thanks for the great plugin!

I have the same problems as you for the images:
IE8: No problem, works perfectly
Firefox 20.0.1: Image without animation
Chrome: broken image display

In regard to images, I found
IE - didn't need preload image
Firefox - needed preload action
Chrome - needed files on fileserver, not embedded

Installed just fine (had to use the preload Image option). Image shows up fine now, but there is no animation. I have the action "Before Page Submit" then the page branch goes to another page that calls a before header plsql process that builds a pdf. Can you think of a reason why I don't have the animation
Stop loading

I have a before header process that generates an excel file. That process can take long to execute so I've set Your plugin to execute during that process. The problem is that the loading icon plugin doesn't stop after the file is generated. I've tried manually to stop the plugin but without luck. Can you maybe give me a tip how to do that?

Thanks in advance,
