Question about Page Builder behavior - how to get a "please wait message" ?

Hi all together,

I got a question about Portal Framework / Page Buider handling iView Integration.

We are working with a lot of App Integrator iViews and often the pages includes with app integrator are loading longer than the rest of the portal. So there is the idea to put in a "please wait while loading message" for the enduser.

I analysed the html code, the page builder is generating and foud out 3 diffrent approaches how the page buider is rendering the IFRAME with the integrated application configured with an app integrator iView.

My question is how can I influence this behavior to put a "please wait while loading message"?

Different types of iView integration in the client I have seen:

a) direct loading of the content in the IFRAME (<iframe id="" ... scr="/mysource">)

b) Filling the iframe with 'about:blank' and loading the content later by filling a form with JS

( <iframe id="" .... scr="about:blank">and after the iframe <form id="" action="mysource" ...>

c) Filling the iframe with a html file from the portal layout and loading the content later by filling a form with JS (similar to b)

( <iframe id=""" ....scr="/irj/portalapps/>

I checked that variant b) is getting generated when loading a page with different components on the side (not only the app integrator iview) and variant c) is generated when just one app integrator iView is positioned (no portal page).

Goal: To get the "please wait picture" I want to know how to get variant c) in cases of different elements on one page

So I would be able to put this picture on the HTML-Page in the Portal layout (blank.html)

Hope, someone with a deep portal / page builder know-how can help me out! 😊

Another way: Does anybody knows another way how to put a "please wait message" while app integrator application is not loaded yet?

Thanks in Advance and kind regards,

    normally application integration is showing a spinning circle, I guess that you also get this animation. Before trying to modify how the portal is integrating applications, can you change this image into a "please wait" message? The image can be found here:
