Spinner Cordova Plugin
This is a Cordova plugin for preventing user interaction using an animated spinner overlay during a blocking operation.
On Android the native ProgressDialog is used, while on iOS it uses the MBProgressHud library.
To add the plugin to your Cordova project, simply add the plugin from the npm registry:
cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-spinner
Alternatively, you can install the latest version of the plugin directly from git:
cordova plugin add
The plugin is available via a global variable named SpinnerPlugin. It exposes the following properties and functions.
All functions accept optional success and failure callbacks as their final two arguments, where the failure callback will receive an error string as an argument unless otherwise noted.
A TypeScript definition file for the JavaScript interface is available in the typings directory as well as on DefinitelyTyped via the tsd tool.
