FieldChangeListener listener = new FieldChangeListener() {
        public void fieldChanged(Field field, int context) {
        	Dialog dialog = new Dialog("Please wait while loading...", null, null, 0, null); UiApplication.getUiApplication().pushModalScreen(dialog);
			Authenticate auth = new Authenticate();
        	SoapObject object = auth.Connect(auth.AuthenticateBody(usernametxt.getText().trim(), passwordtxt.getText().trim()), "", "http://tempuri.org/IAuthentication/Authenticate");

Re: Dialog indicating page is busy loading

I presume that you want to display that dialog and allow your processing to continue.


Unfortunately you sort of have to do this backwards, you have to start the background processing going, and the stall the UI processing on something like your Dialog.


There are a number of Threads on the forum that talk about this.  If you look for "Please Wait screen" or "Loading Screen", you will find more.


I also suggest you have a look at this:



And especially, read the comments at the end (you have to click on the comment link to see them).  There is updated code that I think matches your requirements. 


Let us know if this is not enough for you.
