Hi everyone...

I am currently working on a critical project and want to display WAIT Cursor in a function.which is using type-library marshalling.

I also connect with a machine on network for accessing information from it.

I have tried every possible option which includes "CWaitCursor", "Begin/EndWaitCursor()",
"GetCapture()","SetCapture()","ReleaseCapture()".

With Best Regards...

Just add a CWaitCursor instance to your function:

void LongFunction () {

CWaitCursor wc;

//...
}

The constructor of the CWaitCursor displays the wait cursor, and the destructor sets it back to normal.

So in jkr's example, the CWaitCursor object is created at the beginning of the function, displaying the wait cursor.
Then, when it's destroyed after leaving the funtion, the normal cursor is displayed again.

   BeginWaitCursor(); // display the hourglass cursor

   // do some lengthy processing

   EndWaitCursor(); // remove the hourglass cursor




Aren't these functions working? They belong to CCmdTarget class

CWaitCursor Wait;  // Display cursor
...                // Your procedures
Wait.Restore();    // Restores the original cursor
