The Telerik UI for ASP.NET Core SkeletonContainer component is mainly used for indicating to the user that the content of the page and/or element is currently loading. What separates it from the conventional loaders is that it can follow the exact structure of the page or element that is loading. This prepares the user of what the actual structure will be along with the indication that an action is in process and the content is being loaded. When the loading has finished, you can hide the SkeletonContainer and reveal the original content from underneath by using additional client-side logic.

The current demo shows how to create a SkeletonContainer of a loading Card UI component. To configure the skeleton content, define the HTML structure of the loading element in the Template() option.
