Use the UseWaitCursor Property to Change Cursors

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;
