Loading indicator question

Is there any way to make visible the loading indicator for some requests and invisible for others??

For example, checking new messages on a chat application (polling). I don’t like showing the loading indicator everytime i check for new messages.


Not at the moment, but this discussion might be a relevant one. It would probably resolve also this as those pollings would be faster than 500ms.
