Hi bioalexy,

Good question! I looked already in the past for the ubusyindicator to customize it but I was not able to find it:
I can only suppose is a small gif animation embedded as internal resource into Uniface runtime executable files.

Other Unifacers could have had more luck… 🙂

Hi gianni,

I was expecting some kind of instruction like “webmessage” with the switches and the properties parameter where you can change what the dialog shows, something like <instruction>/async or /sync.

Anyway, yesterday I was inspecting from the browser my webpage and the solution that I came up with was this:

The ubusyindicator is simply a div with the id=”UNIFACE.ubusyasync” and a class=”ubusyasync”, and the ubusyindicator.css with 2 classes selectors, ubusyasync and ubusysync.

With this information you can create a javascript where you get the div from the id and change between the 2 classes and override the selector from your own style.css and change the GIF shown.
