Infinite Spinner during FM Cloud Processing

Anyone have an example of an infinite spinner object that can run on screen while a big executeSQL() is running on a Filemaker Cloud Application? The SQL is compiling data for a Filemaker chart in a layout and takes long enough that the user is unsure if its actually running or just locked up. An infinite spinner that doesn't pause the script may distract the user in knowing it is actually processing.

 

Option B: Should I be running the ExecuteSQL through PSOS instead of the local machine?  Would that be much faster and a spinner may not be needed??

 

Thanks group.
