Hourglass ('wait') cursor causes IE to crash

I added some code to a web form to display an hourglass cursor when posing
back, but IE sometime crashes.

My Web form contains a button. I set the onclick function in the
code-behind as follows.

BtnTest.Attribu tes["OnClick"] = "StartWaitCurso r();";

In the page, I have included the following Javascript.

function StartWaitCursor ()
document.body.s tyle.cursor = 'wait';

There is a posback handler function for the button, but it doesn't do
anything yet.

private void BtnTest_Click(o bject sender, System.EventArg s e)

The whole thing seems to work fine, but after three or four postbacks,
Internet Explorer crashes. I'm using IE version 6.0.2800.1106.

Any ideas on why IE crashes? Does the cursor (document.body. style.cursor)
have to be reset?

Hey all, This is a nitpick that I'd like to fix if possible... I have a form that submits to a page that does some intense DB queries, so the page takes about 30-45 seconds to load. Using Win2K, IE6, when the submit button is clicked, it looks like nothing is happening (unless you read the status bar and see the page opening text). Yet Netscape shows a little hourglass, indicating that processing is occurring. Is there a simple way to...

This should be very simple but I can't figure it out or find ANYTHING posted about how to change your cursor to an hourglass. I have a ASP.NET web form using VB.NET code behind. When I click on a button I want the cursor to change to an hourglass and then change back to the normal cursor afterwards. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, I have created a simple custom PrintPreviewDialog consisting of a simple standard PrintPreviewControl (.NET 1.1) on a WindowsForm with a few buttons (for printing, zooming, etc.).

Turning on the waitcursor is easy,...
