Activity Indicator appears to freeze on orientation change

Hi All,


Anyone got tips on using an Activity Indicator with orientation changes?  At the moment when my app changes orientation the Activity Indicator animation stops and I can not find a way to restart it.


I have set up two slots in my app onOrientationChanging and onOrientationChanged.  I have tried:


stopping the animation onOrientationChanging and restarting onOrientationChanged.

deleting the AI control onOreintationChanging and recreating onOrientationChanged


These have give the same result (which surprised me when I deleted the control and recreated it.


An option would be to stop the orientation changing until my process completes, but that doesn't seem great for a fluid UX.


Any advice please?
