I have a main form with a button on it. Inside the buttons click event I
have the code below. This code simply changes the mousepointer and calls
another form to do some processing and display that form.
For some reason my mousepointer IS NOT changing. I click the button and
it processes for 5-10 seconds and then brings up the other form. BUT my
mousepointer NEVER changes.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Me.MousePointer = vbHourglass
Me.MousePointer = vbDefault
Public Sub Display()
'Some time consuming processing code

Here are three possibilities:
1. Modify your code to change the both button's MousePointer and the form's
2. Modify your code to change Screen.MousePointer.
3. Throw a DoEvents just before frm.Display.
