Hi Joe,

Instead of playing with cursors just show an animated gif during your
loading loop.

on mouseUp  
set the visible of image id 1019 to true // set to your image id (initially

// demo loading start
repeat with tVarNum = 0 to 50000
put tVarNum into fld "FldCount"
wait 0 seconds with messages // important as gif will stall without this:
put this in your loading loop
end repeat

// demo loading end
put "" into fld "FldCount"
set the visible of image id 1019 to false
end mouseUp

Sample with jazzy spinning gif attached.

My software never has bugs. It just develops random features.
