It changes the screen cursor that is usually an arrow to the hourglass or "wait" cursor.

When I start a process, I like to keep the user informed that I am doing something by giving them a visual cue.

The visual cue will usually include setting the cursor as in mouse cursor to the hourglass also known as the waitcursor. In windows 7 it is a circular cursor showing action is happening.

Once done I set the cursor back to the default with the following statement.

this.Cursor = Cursors.Default;
