                            async: false,

                            showLoader: true, //use for display loader
                            success: function (data) {
                                popupData.message = data;
                //Stop loader

Used " showLoader: true, " and "var body = $('body').loader(); body.loader('show');" but unable to start loader while ajax request.

Need an alternative to start loader during ajax call.

    It will not show when async: false. If you must need async: false then you will have to use and initiate custom loader using ajax beforeSend and hide after ajax complete Dec 10, 2019 at 12:11
