Subject Hourglass
Author Joe Martinez
Since converting my app from BDE to IBO, there's something that I've
just realized has been missing. It's the "SQL" hourglass. Whenever the
BDE was working on something (executing a query, refreshing, etc.), it
would change the cursor to an SQL hourglass. This was nice because it
let the user know that it was working on something. That appears to be
gone in IBO.

My users have started complaining that my application "freezes" at
times. It isn't really frozen. It's just that they don't realize that
it's working on something.

Is there a way to turn the automatic hourglass on in IBO, or does it
simply not do this?
