mouse cursor problem !!

Hi,

below is example js:

function SomeLongProcess()
{
for(var i=0;i<document.all.length;i++)
document.all(i).style.cursor="wait";

// some long process here !!

for(var i=0;i<document.all.length;i++)
document.all(i).style.cursor="default";
}

so, the problem is, that the mouse cursor not change, until i focus to
different window, and return to this window.

thanks,

try asyngronous code:

function myWait(){
for(var i=0;i<document.all.length;i++)
document.all(i).style.cursor="wait";
}

function myDefault(){
for(var i=0;i<document.all.length;i++)
document.all(i).style.cursor="default";
}
function SomeLongProcess(){
setTimeout('myWait()'),50)
// some long process here !!
setTimeout('myDefault()'),50)
}

not tested, btw.

==========

Why not:

function myWait(){
document.body.style.cursor="wait";
}

function myDefault(){
document.body.style.cursor="default";
}
