Changing mouse cursor in JApplet on click
Posted on 1998-07-06
I have a JApplet which submits sql queries via JDBC to a database.
When the user clicks a certain button a query is initiated.
Since I would like to notify my user that he should wait I'd like to change the
mouse cursor to an hour glass cursor and change it back to normal when the query
Changing the cursor in JApplet doesn't seem to work due to some bug that should be
fixed in the next version of the Java JFC.
In the mean while I'd like to change the jbutton's color, text or anything that might indicate that
the user should wait.
The problem is that due to some repaint problems the change of background color or any other
visual property does not occur.
I would most appriciate if anyone knows and could share it with me, how I may change background color when
a jbutton was pressed and change it back after a certain process had ended.
Thanks in advance,
