src/common/Component.js~Component → LoadingIndicator

The LoadingIndicator component displays a simple CSS-based loading spinner.

To set a custom color, use the CSS color property.

To increase spacing around the spinner, use the CSS height property on the spinner's container. Setting the display attribute to block will set a height of 100px by default.

To apply a custom size to the loading indicator, set the --size and --thickness CSS custom properties on the loading indicator container.

If you really want to change how this looks as part of your custom theme, you can override the border-radius and border then set either a background image, or use content: "\<glyph>" (e.g. content: "\f1ce") and font-family: 'Font Awesome 5 Free' to set an FA icon if you'd rather.


  • containerClassName Class name(s) to apply to the indicator's parent
  • className Class name(s) to apply to the indicator itself
  • display Determines how the spinner should be displayed (inline, block (default) or unset)
  • size Size of the loading indicator (small, medium or large)
  • containerAttrs Optional attrs to be applied to the container DOM element

All other attrs will be assigned as attributes on the DOM element.
