Busy indicator does not appear



There are buttons on User Interface (UI) and every button loads data page. The busy indicator does not appear while loading the data page when the data page has huge volume of data and buttons are clicked. This leads to a possiblity of multiple clicks, which is incorrect.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Configure buttons to refresh section with preActivity.
2. Click buttons.

Root Cause

The time taken to process Refresh section and server call was negligible. Hence, the busy indicator did not appear. However, the delay allows clicking another button.


Perform the following local-change:

Include the script below in OnClick of button.

function ChangeCursor(event){
  $("body").css("cursor", "wait");
   document.getElementById("HARNESS_CONTENT").style.pointerEvents = 'none';
 function ChangeCursorDefault(event){
  $("body").css("cursor", "default");
   document.getElementById("HARNESS_CONTENT").style.pointerEvents = 'auto';
