Xamarin Forms - Add Activity Indicator in the toolbar (Right Side)

Hey guys ,

How can i set an activity indicator in my Xamarin Forms app toolbar ?

I set IsBusy=true; in my page and its onAppearing() function but nothing happens .

public TestPage()

        /*ToolbarItem x = new ToolbarItem();
        x.Name = "Save";
        x.Order = ToolbarItemOrder.Primary;

        IsBusy = true;

protected override async void OnAppearing()

        IsBusy = true;


I have a toolbar item on the right side but i want it replaced with an activity indicator when something is loading .

I tried isBusy = true without the toolbar item but nothing happens either ...

Any idea how to implement that ?

    I think you can't. I never use activity indicator because I use ACR plugin, but if I remember correctly activity indicator is a XF control that you have to add in your layout not in your toolbar
