I have a DataGrid that has its ItemSource set to a ObservableCollection.
Is it possible to use the IsBusyProperty apart from the PullToRefresh-mechanism?
In my app it is possible that there are several thousands of datasets added to the grid at once,
so I tried to switch the Grid to busy-state when my Collection is filled with data but it did not work.

Hi Jens,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

Regarding your query of using the isBusyProperty to indicate an activity when datasets are loaded in the grid, SfDataGrid has been programmed such that setting values to IsBusy property loads an activity indicator only in scenarios of PullToRefresh

However your requirement can be easily achieved in the sample level by loading a activity indicator and changing its IsRunning property in the GridViewCreated event handler.

We have prepared a sample based on your requirements where we have displayed an activity indicator till the one lakh data sets are loaded into the grid. Please find the sample from the below link.

Kindly revert us if the sample meets your requirements or in case of any queries.
