How can I show that the phone is busy or loading?



i am new to blackberry programming, but so far it seemed not too hard to get everything done as i wanted to.

but now i am stuck. i am communication with a webservice a lot so there is quite some time the user has to wait.

so far i dont have any indicator that the phone is doing/loading something.


Is there a way to set up the blackberry loading icon? or can i use Dialog/Status and remove it programmatically after loading is done? i would be thankful for any help or examples.


thanks a lot

You can implement the GaugeField or you can write you custom screen which does this thing for you.


Some hints..
