making entire application's cursor change to wait cursor in MDI

I have an MDI app, that has a Modal (non MDI child) form that shows up in
it's properties that performs a very long task, I want the wait cursor to
show over the entire application... when I do cursor.current = Wait it only
changes the cursor over the Modal dialog... anyway to change the cursor so
when its over any part of the app it is the same? thanks!

Oh wait...Non MDI child...Hmmm.

I wrote one MDI application once and controled all my froms from a
module. I also had on sub called WaitCursor and when I called it, it
set the Me.Cursor property of all forms that were not disposed or =
nothing.

I'm not sure if there is a better way than that.

I have set onmousedown to change the cursor, but this setting is ignored (IE 5.5; NN 6.1 on Win 2K Pro) until the mouse is either moved or the mouse button is released. On Opera 7.01, the setting seems to be ignored completely, even when I try with window.setTimeout. So my two questions are: (1) Most important: Is there anything I can do so that I don't have to wait for the next mouse event before the cursor gets repainted. (2) Why...

I have a mdi app. I need to change the cursor when I click on certain button on a form that I made into a toolbar. I tried to use cursor.current. But the cursor won't show. if I change the form cursor it will work over the form. I need it to stay with the same cursor over all objects. Any ideas of what I am doing wrong here? TIA

This is the only solution I've found to get a wait cursor document-wide: function Busy() { if (document.all) for (var i=0;i < document.all.length; i++) document.all(i).style.cursor = 'wait'; } Sadly, for pages with a lot of elements, its performance is not acceptable.

Hi All, Just to elaborate on the issue. The requirement is to handle this in javascript 1. User clicks on a button 2. Change the cursor style (We are using document.body.style.cursor="wait") 3. Send an Ajax request and do the processing 4. Once the processing is done change back the cursor to original style (We are using document.body.style.cursor="default") We are able to achieve 1 to 3 .Req 4 is where we have a issue. The issue is...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
