How to show the busy indicator while loading the data in the UWP DataGrid?

1 min read

You can show an indication of the data loading with the help of the BusyIndicator while in the UWP DataGrid. You can display the BusyIndicator by setting the BusyIndicator.IsBusy to true when loading the data. Once loaded, you can stop it by setting the BusyIndicator.IsBusy to false by handling the ItemsSourceChanged event of the SfDataGrid.

<Syncfusion:SfBusyIndicator Name="sfBusyIndicator"


Here, the BusyIndicator is stopped after the SfDataGrid.ItemsSource is changed by handling the ItemsSourceChanged event.

SfdataGrid.Loaded += SfdataGrid_Loaded;
SfdataGrid.ItemsSourceChanged += SfdataGrid_ItemsSourceChanged;
async void SfdataGrid_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    this.SfdataGrid.ItemsSource = await (this.DataContext as ViewModel).GetRecords();
void SfdataGrid_ItemsSourceChanged(object sender, GridItemsSourceChangedEventArgs e)
    sfBusyIndicator.IsBusy = false;


The following screenshot shows the BusyIndictor before loading the data into the view.
