Show cursor busy

Postby Hans Nieuwenhuis » Wed Apr 11, 2012 9:48 am

Hi,

I am now sometimes using the Busy plugin, just to show a busy cursor.
Which b.t.w. is a nice plugin !

But if I only want to show a busy cursor somewhere (no blocking or other features), I have to change my existing code to call it.
And even more changes are needed when a function returns a value.

Would'nt it be nice to be able to set the cursor "Busy" and "not Busy" without realy change the code ?

For Instance :

Code: Select all
function functionName(Param) {
try {

  setCursorBusy()

  < existing >
  < code >
  < return value >

} finally {
  setCursorNotBusy()
}

Hi Hans,

basicly a cool feature request!

But does it make sense to show a busy cursor without the need of displaying a running action and/or blocked functions?
I'm not a master of knowing GUI rules, but I think this could confuse the users, or?
