How can I disable a control and make it show WaitCursor at the same time?


Simple answer: you can't. I've experimented with this a little, just like you have.
What you are seeing here is base Windows functionality. If a parent uses the Wait Cursor, then all children are considered to be 'waiting' as well. A disabled control has no user interaction, so using a Wait Cursor on that doesn't work.

I've become quite convinced that there is no out-of-the-box way to achieve this. I'm guessing it's probably possible, but you're going to have to dig deep into the window procedure for the form and possibly for the child control as well. For a measly thing such as a cursor change, it's not worth the trouble and issues.

However, Bill has suggested an alternative, which I must admit sounds much better. I still think the Wait cursor idea is too much against common practice with what users are used to Roll eyes | :rolleyes: .
So, I suggest going with an alternative.
