    MousePointer question


    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?

    Thanks guys!

    Chris

    cmdButton_click()
    Me.MousePointer = vbHourglass
    frm.Display
    Me.MousePointer = vbDefault
    Exit sub

    Public Sub Display()
    'Some time consuming processing code

    Me.Show vbModal
    Exit Sub

    Here are three possibilities:

    1. Modify your code to change the both button's MousePointer and the form's
    MousePointer.

    2. Modify your code to change Screen.MousePointer.

    3. Throw a DoEvents just before frm.Display.
