VB.Net - Wait Cursor and FormDialog
Posted on 2013-05-21
Good Day Experts!
I am really quite perplexed with my current issue and hope it is something simple.
I have a Startup form with 3 radio buttons. The User picks one and hits <GO>. The code behind the <GO> button is:
If rbtnBatchStatus.Checked = True Then
ElseIf rbtnRaterStatus.Checked = True Then
ElseIf rbtnPkgStatus.Checked = True Then
In the Load_Event of each form I am running queries to load ComboBoxes and DataGrids. So, I have the waitCursor at the top of the Load_Event. I use the following just like all my other projects:
Me.Cursor = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.WaitCursor
Then in the Finally part of the Try/Catch I put the following just like all my other projects:
Me.Cursor = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.Default
My issue is that the cursor never changes to the hourglass which leaves the User wondering. Granted, the most I have seen was maybe 4-5seconds depending on the volume.
Do you see any issues with how I am trying to this?
