Out of topic programming question (VB)
I know that this is not the place to do it ... but i guess im just a bad boy http://www.mp3car.com/ubb/smile.gif
My problem is actually very simple, i have some ado queries that take a fairly long time. During this i have the mousepointer to vbhourglass. The problem is that i would like to animate the mousepointer while waiting.
The animation it self is very easy just set
put the following in a timer
mouseicon = loadpicture("c:....")
and mousepointer = 99
and enable the timer
However i cannot get vb to change the icons while i wait for the query to complete (because the damn timer wont run until it the the program runs "idle".
Is this just a limitation in vb or am i missing something .. any suggestions greatly appreciated, since this problem annoys me ALOT.
