Remarks

Various

  • To restore the cursor to its initial status:
    • call HourGlass(False) as many times as HourGlass(True) was run.
    • use the falseAllHourglass constant.
  • When a WLanguage process ends, the cursor is automatically restored to its standard shape.
Android

Operating mode in Android

Using HourGlass triggers the display of an infinite progress bar. The application interface can no longer be handled by the user as long as the hourglass is displayed.
By default, no message is displayed beside the progress bar.
The following actions can be performed:
  • To display a message, use NextTitle.
  • To change the message while the progress bar is displayed, simply re-run NextTitle and then run HourGlass.
  • To hide the progress bar, use HourGlass with <Activation> = False as many times as HourGlass was called with <Activation> = True.
Remark: When running long processes, we advise you to add calls to Multitask in the code in order to give time to the progress bar to refresh its display.
