Loading Plugin

Loading is a feature that you can use to display an overlay with a spinner on top of your App’s content to inform the user that a background operation is taking place. No need to add complex logic within your Pages for global background operations.

Installation


// quasar.conf.js

return {
  framework: {
    plugins: [
      'Loading'
    ],
    config: {
      loading: { /* Loading defaults */ }
    }
  }
}

Usage

Loading uses a delay (500ms) to display itself so that quick operations won’t make the screen flicker. This happens by showing and then quickly hiding the progress spinner without the user having a chance to see what happens. The delay before showing it eliminates confusion.

Inside a Vue component:

this.$q.loading.show({
  delay: 400 // ms
})

this.$q.loading.hide()

Outside of a Vue component:

import {
  Loading,

  // optional!, for example below
  // with custom spinner
  QSpinnerGears
} from 'quasar'

// default options
Loading.show()

// fully customizable
Loading.show({
  spinner: QSpinnerGears,
  // other props
})

Loading.hide()
Default options

Setting Up Defaults

Should you wish to set up some defaults, rather than specifying them each time, you can do so by using quasar.conf.js > framework > config > loading: {…} or by calling Loading.setDefaults({...}) or this.$q.loading.setDefaults({...}).
