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!

Me.TopLevelControl.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor

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.
