Busy? What?

Ha. It rained. No lawn mowing for me. So I did a little coding. As one does. I've hit a problem with the Smartphone. I think that madness beckons. I wanted to create a splash screen for my program which warmly welcomes the user and gives them something to read while the program fires up. So I did this. Even used threads to make it work too.  Go me.

So next I turned my attention to the cursor. When the machine is busy, it is best if it looks that way. Windows CE devices can be made to display this rotating wheel cursor thing while they are thinking. There is a very simple way of getting this busy cursor, you just change the cursor type to look that way. The thing is that this doesn't work on the emulator (the pretend Smartphone that runs in your PC).  I've never managed to get the busy cursor to appear on the PC. However, on the Smartphone I have a different problem. I can't get rid of the thing. I start the program looking busy as the splash screen loads, and then stay looking busy as the program runs. Even if I turn it off. Wah!

There is something nicely symetrical about this of course, but only in a very annoying way. If I figure out how to fix it I'll let you know. If you know how to fix this, let me know and I'll buy you a (virtual) beer.
