Synchronizing cursors and text boxes between forms in a VB.NET application.

We have an application that may or may not display more than one form at a time.  We would like the cursor to be the same on all of them.  IN other words, change the cursor on one and the rest will follow.  Also, there are text boxes on them we would also like to be the same.  Right now we are writing the text for each form in a separate line.  Any ideas?

We've tried a handler:

Addhandler MyBase.CursorChanged, Addressof Change_Cursor

Public Sub Change_Cursor(sender as Object, e as System.EventArgs)
 form2.Cursor = Me.Cursor
 form3.Cursor = Me.Cursor
End Sub


It should change the cursors in form2 and form3 when we set Me. Cursor=Cursors.WaitCursor shouldn't it?

My VBs a bit rusty, but if the sender is the control you could try:

Public Sub Change_Cursor(sender as Object, e as System.EventArgs)
 form2.Cursor = sender.parent.Cursor
 form3.Cursor = sender.parent.Cursor
End Sub

or if the sender is the form itself:

Public Sub Change_Cursor(sender as Object, e as System.EventArgs)
 form2.Cursor = sender.Cursor
 form3.Cursor = sender.Cursor
End Sub

The problem here is that the sub will be run in the global space (even if it's in the same chunk of code as the sender), so the keyword "me" is meaningless. Also, the reference to the forms looks wrong (unless say "form2" and "form3" are globals) you might want to referto them as forms("form2").Cusor Another thing to check, is that this code is even being run, buy putting a break point on the first line of the sub. If it dosen't break, then the problem is with the handler.
