Now a days every websites are powered by jQuery Preloader. It will add interactivity to a webpage with some sort of animations.  Today I am going to tell how to create a simple jQuery Preloader with 2 lines of jQuery code & few lines of CSS code. We want our user to see something is happening in the background which clicking on any urls in the webpage. This simple JQuery Preloader trick will help them to wait for few seconds in the page before taking any hard decision to move out from our website.

jQuery Code to Create Preloader

// makes sure the whole site is loaded
jQuery(window).load(function() {
        // will first fade out the loading animation
	jQuery("#status").fadeOut();
        // will fade out the whole DIV that covers the website.
	jQuery("#preloader").delay(1000).fadeOut("slow");
})


Here I have used jQuery window onload function – it waits for the assets in the page to be completely loaded

CSS Code

#preloader  {
     position: absolute;
     top: 0;
     left: 0;
     right: 0;
     bottom: 0;
     background-color: #fefefe;
     z-index: 99;
    height: 100%;
 }

#status  {
     width: 200px;
     height: 200px;
     position: absolute;
     left: 50%;
     top: 50%;
     background-image: url(ajax-loader.gif);
     background-repeat: no-repeat;
     background-position: center;
     margin: -100px 0 0 -100px;
 }

HTML Usage

<div id="preloader">
  <div id="status">&nbsp;</div>
</div>
