View Full Version : Multi-Tab app, how do deal with the LoadMask

27 Feb 2012, 9:57 PM
I have 5 tabs in the app, 3 of which use a LoadMask while their data loads. However the LoadMask doesn't prevent anyone from picking a different tab while the loading is happening.

What is the right way to go about making the LoadMask go away/hide when they change tabs? I guess the background processes could continue without hurting anything, but since the Z-Order of the LoadMask is > than the surrounding tabs, it looks really bad.

I'm wondering what approach to take with this.

Try to use mask() and unmask() to mask/unmask your whole tabpanel.

<tabpanel>.getEl().mask('Loading data....');
