Selects and hourglasses

P: n/a
Hi
Is there anyway to get an hourglass appearing on a select in IE6+?
Via CSS or any other means
I'm sure its been asked before but all the posts I can find are from
years ago

thanks

Why would you want the user to think his browser has locked up when he
moves the cursor over a select?

For meaningful manipulation of the cursor's appearance, see

We are getting complaints about ajax calls that last more than, for
example, 30 seconds. Someone presses a button, we change the cursor to
an hourglass on the main page and buttons/fieldsets to indicate
something is happening, if by sheer bad luck the user presses the
button and moves the cursor to the adjacent select theres no
hourglass.

We do get similiar complaints about postbacks, IE does show you theres
a postback occuring but for people who don't use the internet a lot
they are subtle and easy to miss (flag waving, circle rotating)
