Hi ,

Does busy indicator work in RAP? Or do we need to do some special setting to make it work. As I have seen a topic where you say that if a request is taking more than 500ms you show a busy indicator. But I dont see that happening in my application. Also when I checked the Source Code of Busy Indicator I see that cursor changing code is commented.
Please advice.

RWT shows an an hour-glass like cursor after a request is running for
500 ms or longer. If you don't see this, please file a bug.

However, this is meant as a last resort. I think most users won't accept
applications that regularly need 500 or more ms to respond.
If you have long running tasks to executed use background threads to
keep the UI responsive.

As you already noticed, the code from the BusyIndicator class is
commented out so that it only executed the given runnable. The
showWhile() method is executed *within* a request. Changing the cursor
would be without a visible effect as the changes are rendered to the
client *after* the request was processed (i.e. after showWhile() returns).

Regards
Rüdiger

Thanks Rudiger. Our application is pretty heavy in nature (as migrated from RCP) and highly user interactive. Some operations needs needs round about a sec or two to respond and render on the screen. Hence we need some mechanism to tell the user that "we are still processing". And BusyIndicator seems to be an automatic choice. As I said it doesnt show up in RAP. I will file a bug.
