Add loading state guidance to the Table View #469

This is an enhancement to an existing pattern to add a loading state note to the table view.

When there are performance issues, users have to wait for the view to load. We should give guidance around using a loading state ( which would likely be a Large Spinner control with the "Loading" text below it).

Note that on the design page of this pattern, we are already giving guidance around if the view is empty

@mcarrano @maryclarke @catrobson do you support this suggestion?

@serenamarie125 Agree for first load. In some of our implementations, we're also seeing lazy load taking time, and in this case I think clearing out the table doesn't make sense. Do you think a lazy load solution for spinners is another separate issue/contribution?

@mcarrano the proposed design is to use the same solutions we give for the base card. Display a Large Spinner control with the "Loading" text below it. Loading would be the default text ( with no ellipses ), but should be customizable from an implementation perspective.

Note that this suggestion is consistent with the loading state of the card shown here:
