Application-wide Wait Cursor – Automatically Shows when App is busy


 

From a developer’s point of view, using the WaitCursor library could not get any simpler. Add a reference to the WaitCursor assembly and then add the following line to your application start-up code:

ApplicationWaitCursor.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor;

That’s it!

You can of course use any Cursor you like, you can use one of the predefined Cursors or you can create a new cursor and use that instead. You can also fine tune the amount of work time that will elapse before the Cursor is shown:

ApplicationWaitCursor.Delay = 
             new TimeSpan(0, 0, 0, 1, 0);  // Delay of 1 second
