I have a custom plugin where I need to change the cursor to animated blue circle while background operations are happening. I am able to change cursor to a static one e.g kAnimCrsrWatch_5. But not able to change it to aniated wait cursor.

Can someone help with this?

You can use an instance of class AcquireWaitCursor.

"Animated blue circle" is pretty vague but I don't think you're going to do it using InDesign natively. You'll likely need a 3rd party product to make this happen. What is the custom plugin you are using?

Hi Chad, It seems that OP is herself trying to create a third party plugin with this functionality.

@OP, Could you post some code snippet, that would help someone integrate that bit of code into a sample and see if they can help
