Maybe so, but if I uncheck those attributes the icon graphic is back where it should be and all good. When they are active, the graphic only shows a single slice of the left.

The key is it is not visible, not just not spinning. The existing "loading" display shows the "spinner" graphic but the new one does not, just a blank space. Animation doesn't matter...

Thanks for the explanations Tim.

One further issue with the controls demo, on the Standard tab the
TEditComboBox drop down button displays the available options as
expected but when clicking the drop down button again the list doesn't
close. The TButtonComboBox above it appears to open/close correctly. The
TEditComboBox also works as expected in 2.05.

Clicking outside the control does close the list as expected.

Matthew,

Again, these are issues with the JS not being able to relinquish the UI thread to allow the updates to occur on- screen.  I've made some improvements to the layout/load performance in the beta that help this a bit, but ultimately the issue is that EWB needs "await" functionality to allow code to wait on things to be handled by the browser before proceeding.  It's the nature of asynchronous code - make one single part of the code asynchronous, and it takes over the code like a virus, forcing all subsequent operations into the asynchronous model, also.

Thanks, this is already fixed for the next beta.

Just show a fixed image that will be loaded then. Having a blank space looks like there is a problem. A fixed image would be fine. It is the total non-appearance that is the problem (assuming it isn't just my browser of course!). Or no image at all.

What I'm working on now for the 2.06 beta will make things slightly better, based upon my tests.  Chrome will at least now just show the static image, and it was the problematic browser in this respect.
