    CAknWaitDialog dialog not seem when calling SetDefaultViewL??

    Hi,
    When my application starts it gets some data from the server and till then I need to show a wait dialog.Also before showing a dialog am calling:
    Code:
       		SetDefaultViewL(*iMyListView);
    ,the screen freezes and the dialog is not seen!!
    I have tried all permutations and combinations for the settings the dialog and setting the view,but still the dialog cannot be seen.
    Can some one point out a solution??
    Thanks.

    Thumbs up Re: CAknWaitDialog dialog not seem when calling SetDefaultViewL??

    HI MAyur ,

    I think your are trying to display the wait dialog in the construction phase of your App UI class ,

    i suggest a way , may be its bit longer method ,

    may be you can try things in following sequence ,


    1. Firstly set the default view by calling SetDefaultViewL(*iMyListView);

    2. then use a periodic timer , that will be called once and set a time of say (1000 microseconds) , in the call back method of ur timer ,

    first display the wait dialog , then intiate/start communication with the server and when this communication ends , stop displaying the wait dialog.


    I am suggesting this coz i fell that u should avoid doing long time consuming tasks in the construction phase of your UI !

    I hope your are using active objects for server communication job !


    I wish this help you !!!


    Regards

    Thanks a lot for the reply.
    Have fixed the issue by not calling SetDefaultViewL(*iMyListView);
    I have just added the views and then showed the progress dialog.
    After the progress dialog is dismissed I just activated the view instead of doing SetDefaultViewL.
    Thanks.
