Usage

ModalProgressHUD(child: _buildWidget(), inAsyncCall: _saving)

Simply wrap the widget as a child of ModalProgressHUD, typically a form, together with a boolean maintained in local state. On first loading, the boolean is false, and the child is displayed. After submitting, and before making the async call, set the local boolean to true. The child will redraw and will show the modal progress HUD. After they async call completes, set the boolean to false. The child will redraw without the modal progress indicator.

class SettingsPage extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _SettingsPageState createState() => new _SettingsPageState();
}

class _SettingsPageState extends State<SettingsPage> {
  bool _saving = false;

  void _submit() {

    setState(() {
      _saving = true;
    });

    //Simulate a service call
    print('submitting to backend...');
    new Future.delayed(new Duration(seconds: 4), () {
      setState(() {
        _saving = false;
      });
    });
  }

  Widget _buildWidget() {
    return new Form(
      child: new Column(
        children: [
          new SwitchListTile(
            title: const Text('Bedroom'),
            value: _bedroom,
            onChanged: (bool value) {
              setState(() {
                _bedroom = value;
              });
            },
            secondary: const Icon(Icons.hotel),
          ),
          new RaisedButton(
            onPressed: _submit,
            child: new Text('Save'),
          ),
        ],
      ),
    );
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return new Scaffold(
      appBar: new AppBar(
        title: new Text('Flutter Progress Indicator Demo'),
        backgroundColor: Colors.blue,
      ),
      body: ModalProgressHUD(child: _buildWidget(), inAsyncCall: _saving),
    );
  }
}

Example

See the example application source for a complete sample app using the modal progress HUD. Included in the example is a method for using a form's validators while making async calls (see flutter/issues/9688 for details).
