Overlay busy/loading animation

Post by denarced » Fri Jul 06, 2012 11:20 am

Hello,

Is this possible:
Create a largish 'loading' animation on top of the primary UI when a long operation is executing. The rest of the UI would be grayed out, still visible but couldn't be used. This is pretty fancy stuff so if you can think of something close to this I'm also interested.

Is it possible to create such layers in wxWidgets at all?

Cheers

Probably you can write your own class inheriting from wxBusyInfo

Hope that helps :-)
