Event that occurs when a nonmodal form is completly loaded and shown

Hi,

i need an event, that occurs when a nonmodal form is COMPLETLY loaded and shown to the user, that means that the user can use the form immediatly.
I set the Cursor to WAITCURSOR and create the form when the user hits a node on a treeview. Then, when the form is shown , i need an event thet resets the WaitCursor to Default. I need this,because i dont want that the user thinks he hasn't hit the node and repeats to click on it. The form uses database access and crystal reports so it takes a few seconds (especially on older pcs) until the form appears.
I tried quite all possible events of the form (Load, Activated, GotFocus...) but they all reset the Cursor to early (the form appeard not jet).

Thanks in advance for any help!

I think you have to use the Application.Idle

Do something like this:

private EventHandler EventHandler formReadyHandler;
....
public void ShowAForm()
{
    formReadyHandler = new EventHandler(Form_Ready);
    Applicaton.Idle += formReadyHandler;
    AForm.Show();
}

private void Form_Ready(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    Applicaton.Idle -= formReadyHandler;
    // form is ready
}

Form.Load is the last event to to be fired before the form is shown, why not set this.Cursor = Cursors.Default as the last line of this event?
