QuestionWaitCursor, again Pin

Hi experts,

the problem described in an earlier message[^] has changed sightly.

An application I'm developing needs to tell user that it is busy while doing some long-term processing and communication with hardware devices in a separate thread. User, in the meantime, needs to press some buttons on those hardware devices depending on what the application shows on screen. But the application itself shall be locked from user interaction with the exception of a "Cancel" button.

I therefore made most controls (excluding the "Cancel" button)
C#
control.UseWaitCursor = true;
control.Enabled = false;

When busy time ends, controls are set back to
C#
control.Enabled = true;
control.UseWaitCursor = false;

A problem I had was that WaitCursor was also shown on the "Cancel" button. That was because I had set the whole Form to UseWaitCursor = true after processing all individual controls. Having removed this erronuous command now, WaitCursor doesn't show up at all.

By playing around a little, I found out that UseWaitCursor = true has no effect on controls that are set to Enabled = false irrespective of command order.

Are there any suggestions for
1. Disabling all controls except for "Cancel" button
2. Showing WaitCursor on all controls except for "Cancel" button

Luc Pattyn already suggested[^] a modal dialog which is impossible due to the information on screen that user needs to press the correct buttons as mentioned above.

Ciao,


luker
