Hi.

I have a Form (Form1) with alot of components on. Some times I do some calculation that take alot of time and I would like the Cursor to turn to crHourGlass all over the Form. If I change Form1.Cursor the cursor will be HourGlass when on Form1 but not on one of its components (which is almost all over). It cannot be true that I should have to change the Cursor-property of all the components of Form1.

Can anyone help me to an easy way to just make the cursor = crHourGlass all over Form1 or the application.

Thanx - Steff.
