Use the UseWaitCursor Property to Change Cursors

The System.Windows.Form class's UseWaitCursor property sets the window's cursor to an hourglass. It is a Boolean property.

The Application class also contains a UseWaitCursor property, which sets the UseWaitCursor property of all open Forms in the application. Set it to false to change the cursor to the default shape.

For instance:

  1. 
       // Display an hourglass cursor:
       this.UseWaitCursor = true;
       ..
       // change back to default
       this.UseWaitCursor = false;
    
  2. 
       // To display for all opened forms 
       Application.UseWaitCursor = true;
       ..
       // change back to default
       Application.UseWaitCursor = false;
