Loading Screen

ZingGrid has a default loading screen that can be used as is or customized as your own.

Default

You can use the default loading screen by simply loading any dataset.

While loading, there will be a loading attribute available on the grid which you can add yourself or let the library define. You can also define a height on the grid while it's loading which will make a much better visual experience.

/* This will not apply once the grid has loaded */
zing-grid[loading] {
  height: 400px;
}

Loading Text
