Replace the SQL wait cursor

Question:

How can I suppress the SQL wait cursor? I rather just show the regular hour glass.

Answer:

The cursor displayed during SQL operations is one of Borland's predefined cursors maintained in the global Screen variable. You can either create your own cursor as a resource, load it and assign it to the field in the array, or use the existing hour glass cursor as shown in the code snippet below.

This is an application wide setting, so apply it early e.g. when your main form gets created.

  Screen.Cursors[crSQLWait] := Screen.Cursors[crHourGlass];
