Progress Spinner

A spinner is an animated element that appears a user's action to indicate that saving or loading is in progress.


There are 3 different types of progress spinners available to choose from in GEL.

Progress Spinner types


Progress Spinner demo


  • User spinner to indicate background activity which takes short period of time is in progress .
  • Similar to progress bar, if the spinner is either MD or LG, consider accompanying the spinner with a text informing what action/process is taking place.

When to use

  • When an action has been taken and the server/process takes short time to load new data/content.

When not to use

  • Ideally, only one spinner should be used at a time. If a larger section of content is loading, consider using a larger size spinner instead of multiple smaller ones or a skeleton loader instead.
  • If the process takes a long period of time such as importing data or exporting reports, consider using a progress bar instead.
