Not sure i'm too late to reply. i'm recently joined the forum


Try this code


DialogFieldManager manager = new DialogFieldManager();
manager.addCustomField(new LabelField("Please Wait..."));

final Screen popup = new PopupScreen(manager);
UiApplication.getUiApplication().invokeLater(new Runnable() {            
public void run() {                
 UiApplication.getUiApplication().pushModalScreen(popup); // pops up 'please wait' pop up window
Thread t=new Thread(new Runnable()
 public void run()
  //your process
UiApplication.getUiApplication().invokeLater(new Runnable() {            
 public void run() {                
  UiApplication.getUiApplication().popScreen(popup); //hide wait popup screen
