Tried this on an emulator and my phone without success:
I upgraded my app to 1.1.0-rc.1 and some of my showPageLoadingMsg calls do work in android 2.3.3, but most do not. I haven't tried any other versions of android.
Are you sure it's just not showing up farther down the page? I had that issue when I was playing around with it. I'm actually only able to reproduce on the latest:
Obviously still an issue.
I just tried it again and if I scroll down I do see it on the bottom. I could have sworn it wasn't working at all earlier so I did a little more testing.
Android 2.1 (emulator) - Seemed to work as expected
Android 2.2 (emulator) - Did not work. I did a refresh and it worked fine (including the location of the spinner)
Android 2.3 (htc mytouch) - Tried it again and it didn't work. I did a refresh and it worked fine. (the location of the spinner was at the bottom)
Kindle Fire - Did not work. I did a refresh and it worked fine (including the location of the spinner)
It appears that we have two issues here:
Location of the spinner in 2.3
Loader not showing up in 2.2 and 2.3 ( initial load ... does appear to be somewhat random )
Hope this helps!
It does indeed.
I think this issue may be related:
You can try out my proposed fix by including:
for jquery mobile
That fixes at least part of the issue, and also might speed up our scrolling a bit but really requires your review just to be sure. My grasp of possible height calculation issues is very weak.
You can also test on your android devices by hitting:
