Dropbox Chooser loading indicator

Dropbox Chooser loading indicator

New member | Level 2

Hey there!


We've started integrating Dropbox Chooser into our product. It a nice and easy to integrate from a developer's perspective - thanks!


We've gotten quite a few tickets regarding an unresponsive Dropbox Chooser modal. Digging a bit I quickly realized that the modal was not unresponsive - it was just doing some thinking.


In cases where a user selects quite a few files the POST request made to `` takes quite some time. I guess behind the scene you're generating direct links for each file. For non-technical users it seems like the modal is stuck.


Could you please add small loading indicator on the choose button while you're collecting the links?




Best regards

Thanks for writing this up! I can't make any promises myself, but I'll pass this along to the team to see if we can get that done.
