Run Loader Button

The Run Loader button allows you to run your Loader and see how it will work in your site before enabling it. It will auto hide itself at start and then use the Minimum Loading Time, Duration and Delay to give your a live demonstration of how it would work on your site. After the Loader ends, it will hide itself and appear again after a second to allow you to continue editing it.
