One of the problems that can arise when using an hourglass is not setting the cursor back to the default. This class avoids that problem by automatically setting the cursor back to the default when it terminates.
|(Declarations)||Declarations||Declarations and private variables for the CHourglass class.|
|Value||Property||Get whether the cursor is an hourglass.|
|Class_Terminate||Terminate||Reset the cursor to the default.|
' Example of CHourglass ' ' To try this example, do the following: ' 1. Create a new form ' 2. Add a command button named 'cmdTest' ' 3. Paste all the code from this example to the new form's module ' 4. Run the form Private Sub cmdTest_Click() Dim dblStart As Double Dim clsHourglass As CHourglass Set clsHourglass = New CHourglass clsHourglass.Value = True ' Simulate a long operation by looping for 2 seconds dblStart = Timer Do Until dblStart + 2 < Timer DoEvents Loop MsgBox "Done!" ' You may either explicitly set the value to false, or just wait for the variable to go out of scope, ' in which case the hourglass is automatically turned off clsHourglass.Value = False End Sub
