Cursor Reset to Default Before System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.Default is executed

I have a vb.net app in which I have set the cursor to a wait currsor in a button click event.  The cursor does seem to change to an hour class but then resets to a default cursor before the System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.Default is executed.

Are there certain operations that cause this?

I'm not sure, but you could put it (the hour glass code) in the loop or whatever code you use that you are waiting on.

thanks for pointing me in the right direction....

I was executing a for ...next loop to populate some word form fields.  I guess it reset the cursor to default.  (Not sure why)

I stuck a  Me.Cursor.Current = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.WaitCursor inside and all is well.

Cursor goes back and forth between normal and wait quite a bit but does the trick
