set the cursor to busy

Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the busy constant to set the cursor to a rotating beachball shape, suitable for showing the progress of lengthy operations.

Comments:

The busy cursor is a rotating beach ball. Each time you use the statement set the cursor to busy, the beach ball advances in its rotation. For example, the following statements cause the cursor to appear to spin as long as the repeat loop is running:

repeat until someCondition is true

set the cursor to busy -- spins a bit further

doSomething -- insert whatever you want the loop to do here

end repeat

The following two statements are equivalent:

set the cursor to busy

set the cursor to 6

However, the first is easier to read and understand in Revolution code.

Important! If you use the busycursor or other standard cursors in your application, you must include it when you create your standalone. Make sure the "Cursors" option on the Inclusions section on the General screen of the Standalone Application Settings window is checked.
