using code: Me.UseWaitCursor = true
I can set the mouse pointer on my form to an hourglass. I run this code on a CheckedChanged event of a checkbox. The problem is the hourglass doesn't appear on my screen until all the code in this procedure is finished (the code goes on to try opening a serial port). How do I ensure the hourglass is viewed on my form before the remaining code in the procedure runs?
