Using Native WordPress Loading Icons in Your Plugins

Sometimes when building WordPress Plugins, I need a loading icon and forget that WordPress has a bunch already available.

For future reference:

    Great resource Nicky, I just searched for this because as you can see the first choice (tinymce progress) is no longer working. TinyMCE either doesn’t have one anymore or it’s in a different place, skins folder no longer in themes folder either but I checked both themes and no progress.gif there. I’m going with thickbox for my popup plugin!
