Changing Forms Cursor

I am having problems with cursor in Deplhi.

I have a TQuery Component. I change the SQL statement property programaticaly in this control. Before I change the SQL statement I first close the query and when the new SELECT statement is formed I open the query to show the new
data.

Before closing the query I change cursor to hourglass and change it to default after opening the query. Here I have problems because, cursor changes to default before opening the query. The cursor changes only when I first open the query. Then it doesn't change any more. It is like the lines for changing cursor are ignored. The cursor stays default.

Try placing:

Application.processmessages;

immediately after the line of code that changes the cursor.

That should force any pending messages to be processed.
Hope this does the trick ;)

I have tried it but it didn't help.

I have solved the problem just after I sent the question.
I used forms variable Cursor like this

Cursor := crHourGlass;

Then I tried Screens variable Cursor and now it works just fine:

Screen.Cursor := crHourGlass;
