Button "columnToggle" - show processing while working?

I'm using a button that extends "columnToggle" and when you click on the button (that will end up toggling the visibility on a set of 5 columns), it takes a few seconds for the columns to be shown/hide. Is there a way to put a spinner or processing message on the screen during that few second lag time? Like maybe a way to extend the action and make custom calls before and after the columnToggle action itself?

    Could you try using columnsToggle? It should perform better since it will only redraw the table once.

    Aside from that this plug-in might be useful to show a processing display.

    i will have the same question for a 'colvisRestore' button, i tried

    action: function ( e, dt, node, config ) {
    $.fn.dataTable.ext.buttons.colvisRestore.action.call(this, e, dt, node, config);
    this.processing( false );
