How to implement a bindable progress indicator (loading dots) for MVVM Windows (8.1) Universal apps
Now that I am on a good way to understand and use the MVVM pattern, I am also finding that there are some times rather simple solutions for every day problems. One of these problems is that we don't have a global progress indicator for Windows Universal apps. That is a little bit annoying, and so I wrote my own solution. I don't know if this is good or bad practice, but my solution is making it globally available in a Windows Universal app. The best thing is, you just need to bind to a Boolean property to use it.
