How to display a progress indicator for serverside processing

Can't seem to find an example that shows a progress indicator while the server side request is being processed. Is there one available?

    Add the option processing: true. This will show a "processing" message while the data loads.

    How would I make it a spinning icon vs text?

    I used the font Awesome spinner from http://fontawesome.io/examples/#animated and it seem to work.
    ```
    $(document).ready(function () {
    $('#example').DataTable({

                    "processing": true,
                    "language": {
                        processing: '<i class="fa fa-spinner fa-spin fa-3x fa-fw"></i><span class="sr-only">Loading...</span> '},
    
    
                    "serverSide": true,
                    "ajax":{
    
                url: "wsService.asmx/GetDTDataSerializedList",
                type: "Post",
                dataFilter: function (res) {
                    debugger;
                },
                        error:function(x, y){
                            console.log(x);
                            debugger;
                        }
                    },
                    "columns": [
                    { "data": "first_name" },
                    { "data": "last_name" },
                    { "data": "position" },
                    { "data": "office" },
                    { "data": "start_date" },
                    { "data": "salary" }
                    ]
                });
            });
    

    ```

    I put it here http://live.datatables.net/kihecona/1/edit since there is not a real ajax call, it throws up an error but you see it spin until you close the error.

    Just hit "Run with JS" button

    That's perfect.
