Display hour glass mouse pointer,during Files getting Copied

P: 115
i'm using VB.NET.

when a button is clicked the utility will display an hour glass mouse pointer, and it will begin copying the Utility settings from one computer to another computer on the network. Upon completion of these steps, the mouse pointer will return to itís default style and the program will exit.

any one have any idea how to display a Hour Glass Mouse Pointer? and when that settings starts coping to another computer, how can we display an hour glass mouse pointer and when the settings finished copying, how can we return to default mouse pointer. how we will know the copying got over.

if you have anyidea please let me know. and if you can provide any examples, then that will be a great help for me.

thanks in advance.

A lot of the controls have a cursor property.
I believe in code you can also just type like "Cursor" or something and there will be some usefull options.

I personally have shyed away from that and instead disable my controls and display a label that says like "Working..." and then when my task is done, I hide that label and re-enable all my controls.
