Change cursor while script running?

Hello all


Is it possible to change the cursor while a script is running? I have several scripts which work on large numbers of objects, and it would be very helpful to have the cursor change to the spinning colourwheel or hourglass while the script is looping away.


I understand that Adobe's Javascript Toolkit would let you build a progress-bar dialog, but the delays are rarely long enough to justify such a thing. All the same, a change of cursor would reassure users (and not just me!) that things were indeed happening.


Many thanks for your interest.

    I did look into this a while back… I was hoping to use the mac system one over the screen ( not as part of scriptUI ) but had no luck…
