Control.UseWaitCursor Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether to use the wait cursor for the current control and all child controls.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(true)]
public bool UseWaitCursor { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true to use the wait cursor for the current control and all child controls; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Use a wait cursor whenever you perform an operation that takes a noticeable amount of time. However, note that operations that block the UI thread will also block a cursor change. Therefore, this property should only be used when performing time-consuming operations in another thread. To change the cursor globally and immediately, see the Current property.
