What's new

Loading indicator was previously named “Standard Loading Indicator” and was featured in the “Progress Indicators” section of DDS v1. This component has been visually redesigned as a circle and includes updates to the font ramp and color palette, in addition to accessibility enhancements.

Anatomy

The parts of a loading indicator component, labeled 1 through 3.
  1. Animated spinner: spinning animation along the circuit, represented by a quarter of a circle.
  2. Circuit ring: circle that is used to set boundaries for the animated spinner to travel clockwise.
  3. Label: optional text to describe the action. It is recommended to limit the label to one word.
