Default WAITCURSOR, not SetWaitCursor

In the On-line Manual, there exist an entry "WaitCursor".

In the example it is called SetWaitCursor. That's wrong.

I think that there is a mis-type in the online help.

waitcursor is the PPL function to change the cursor to the hourglass;

setwaitcursor is the C++ function as defined by Microsoft;

It appears that it only works on WinCE devices - I have tested this in some PC code and it does not do anything;

Past editor of 'Voice of the PPL' the BI-Monthly Disk Magazine for the PPL by the PeoPLe!

Still developing products using PPL! - Although not as many as I used to!

If you enjoy my PPL applications and want to see many more, or I have helped you in any way; click here to buy me a beer;
