Initializing Cursors

When your application starts up, the Finder sets the cursor to a wristwatch; this indicates that a short operation is in progress. When your application nears completion of its initialization tasks, it should call the InitCursor procedure to change the cursor from a wristwatch to an arrow.

If your application uses an animated cursor to indicate that an operation of medium length is under way, it should also call the InitCursorCtl procedure to load its 'acur' resource and associated 'CURS' resources.
