Add Busy Notifications to Your .NET MAUI Application

Add Busy Notifications to Your .NET MAUI Application

Adding busy notifications is part of building your app. Especially when you are developing a cross-platform app like in .NET MAUI, busy notifications are essential to enhance the app’s appearance, user interaction, and experience.

The busy notification UI in your .NET MAUI app is essential because it will:

Reassure users of app responsiveness

The response time of a mobile app varies by case. Slow loading and network speed might have an impact on the response rate. In these cases, the busy notification will reassure the user that the system is still operational and the item is being prepared.

Enrich the app’s visuals

It’s fantastic when we can make the users’ wait time more interesting when something is being prepared for their request. A good graphical busy notification will keep users feeling good since it can make the wait time less boring.

Enhance the app’s readability

You can use busy notifications in your .NET MAUI apps that consist of text like “Searching…” or “Preparing” to indicate that things are getting ready. In general, though, just static text like this doesn’t provide enough sense of what is happening. A good busy notification will be an animated graphic that clearly acknowledges that time is passing and that this is expected, such as an arrow moving in a circle. So, instead of showing only static text, display meaningful indicators with or without text.

Best practices to show busy notifications in your .NET MAUI app

Following dos and don’ts will help you to add a busy notification in your .NET MAUI app better.


  • Use busy notifications for short, indeterminate wait periods.
  • Use busy notifications for indeterminate actions. For determinate actions, use progress indicators.
  • Ensure that the busy notification is applied to all instances of a process in a consistent format.
  • Use simple and single-colored busy notifications for more visual appeal in the UI.


  • Don’t allow users to interact with the UI behind a busy notification.
  • Don’t engage busy notifications for actions to be performed in the same thread.
  • Don’t show inappropriate animations or graphics. The graphic should reflect the process. For example: Don’t show a searching graphic for loading a page.
  • Don’t show a busy notification over the whole screen when a button is clicked; show it just over the button. Show the busy notification over the whole screen only when an entire page is being loaded.
