Hi all,
I am relatively new at this javascript thing having only taught it to myself in the last couple weeks and I just learned HTML a few months ago, but i have come across a problem.

I want to change the cursor to an hourglass while a function that takes a few seconds is running.

This is what the code looks like

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="javascript" TYPE="text/javascript">
...
function cursorChangeOn() {
document.body.style.cursor = "wait";
}

function cursorChangeOff() {
document.body.style.cursor = "default";
}

function retrieveData(){...}

function timeout() {
setTimeout("retrieveData();cursorChangeOff()",10)
}
...
</SCRIPT>
</BODY>
...
<input name="button" type="button" onClick= "cursorChangeOn();timeout()" value="Retrieve Data">


I also am not sure if you are aloud to call more than one function after an onClick command. If there is a easier way to do this or is there something wrong with the code i would appriciate the help.

Thank you.

I wont go into any javascript as I'm not exactly an expert, but I do know you can change the cursor using CSS and the cursor property.

e.g.
Code:

<style type="text/css">
div:hover{ cursor:wait }
</style>


Alternativly you could change the cursor when the mouse or keyboard do something, using onload or something simular:
Code:

<p onmouseover="this.style.cursor='wait'" onmouseout="this.style.cursor='default'" />


I know it's probably not what you looking for but I hope it's helpful.
