DropDownDataGrid selection popup & an async Change() function

My dropdown Change function is an async task(makes http request for next dropdown's data) which results in the dropdown selection popup to await until an http request is done and deserialized. I just want to have the popup go away as soon as selection is made and show a loading icon I have when busy so the app is responsive.

Out of curiosity I tried switching the change function to a void function that calls an async task, which had the desired visual effect but the task never completed as I expected so I'm a bit stuck...

I could be going about this the wrong way but I can't seem to find any examples similar to what I'm trying to accomplish. Appreciate any help!

Hi @gonsalvg,

This won't work as the DropDownDataGrid will wait for the Change event handler to complete before closing.
