Application.ProcessMessages if that is what you mean. It's hard to tell...

Basically it processes any messages in the application's message queue, so that things like redraw/refresh work. You'd use it, for example:
1. Screen.Cursor := crHourglass
2. Application.ProcessMessages
3. Do lengthy operation
4. Screen.Cursor := crDefault

Line 2 is important as the screen cursor wouldn't otherwise update until after the lengthy operation.
