Thanks, Bill. I not only need to think about the design, but also about how to convince my customer that the reconsidred design is what he wants. For now, he wants the controls disabled and with WaitCursor.

For the important things we don't know yet:
There are several "hardware" somethings (devices). Let's call them Charlie, Augustus, Veruca, Violet and Mike.
The application shows several controls. One of them is some kind of "announcer" control. There is no 1-on-1 coupling between controls and devices.

User can start a sequence in which announcer says "Go to Chalie. Press the red button."
User then goes to "hardware" something called Chalie and presses the red button.
Announcer changes to "Go to Augustus. Press the red button."
User goes to Augustus and presses the red button.
Announcer changes to "Go to Veruca. Press the red button."
And so on until Mike's red button has been pressed.

While user is on his way pressing hardware buttons, there is no need for him to touch any of the application's controls (with the exception of "Cancel" button). Therefore controls shall be disabled and show the WaitCursor.

Since some controls (e.g. ListView) don't gray-out text when disabled, the additional WaitCursor would be a really great benefit. But it seems that disabling a control also disables its ability to show WaitCursor.


How can I disable a control and make it show WaitCursor at the same time?

Ciao,


luker
