    Hi Bob, I am Ashish Jain Beginner developer for windows phone 8 applications but i can say i was beginner a week ago but now i am much more than beginner so thanks a lot for it from the bottom of my heart. 

    I would like to ask one question about this tutorial, you are showing the one "please wait..." message during loading to the full grid. What will be the approach if i am loading images (images are coming randomly through a url so due to the low internet connection some images show among of them) into the ListBox and show separate "Please wait..." message for different-2 block ?

    Thanks Smiley

    @Ashishjain: you can do a storyboard animation on ImageLoaded event on the Image control.  It is a great polish to the application that you can do.

    @Clint, I tried the approach but its not working for me, But last two days ago i tried by creating the customControlSpinner.xaml (I created some dots and through storyboard i animated them) into my solution and implement into the ListBox of my MainPage.xaml so its animating but problem with this approach is it will animate continously and i am unable to overlap my remoteImages.jpeg on this customControlSpinner.xaml.

    Gist is i can say to some extent my approach is good but not perfect solution of my problem i meant its not real time approach. If you have other suggestion than please let me know.
