New Plugin - Loading Overlay

Hey everyone,

we have just released the Loading Overlay Plugin!
This Plugin allows you to display a variety of different overlay Screens which can be used as a Loading Screen or as a Transition screen for your application. The following Overlays can be used:

  • Full-Screen Overlay
  • Element Overlay
  • Text Overlay
  • Image Overlay

With this Plugin you have access to multiple overlays which can help you to increase the user experience of your app and improve the design. For example, you can add an “Element Overlay” to certain elements after the user has performed a certain action to indicate that a workflow is running. Furthermore you can basically create your own loading overlay by just uploading any image you want and using an “Image Overlay.”

For a demo of this Plugin please visit: https://loadingoverlay.bubbleapps.io/

Have a great day!

@Anticode Nice work

Quick question - would there be any lag between firing this workflow on ‘When page is loaded’ event? For instance I have a repeating group loading in quite a few cells and for a few seconds it remains empty while loading. Can this loading overlay appear straight away, while in the background elements load in?

Cheers

Hey @luke2!

No there is no lag and the overlay is shown immediately, however the repeating group is also loaded immediately, so if you are only loading very few cells the repeating group content might just be visible for an instant before the overlay appears.
I have created a demo which shows the overlay with a large repeating group: https://loadingoverlay.bubbleapps.io/loadingdemo

I hope that answers your question!

Thanks for letting me know and for the clear demo of it in action, all seems to work pretty smoothly.
