I am able to set the Cursor to busy on all
of my Swing components sitting on a JFrame except
when I use the JComboBox. Where I set my cursor
has no effect either (Before and after population
of the ComboBox). I am using Swing 1.0.2
on Win 95 with JDK1.1.5. 

I have tried to set the cursor using a loop with
the getComponents() method from
the container but that worked for every component
except JComboBox.

Here is a simplified version of the code to 
isolate the problem.

import com.sun.java.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;

class TestCursor extends JFrame{

    JComboBox abox = new JComboBox();

    public TestCursor(){

    public void initialize(){

        abox.addItem("    ");


    public static void main(String args[]){
        TestCursor test = new TestCursor();

EVALUATION This is because JComboBoxes are compound components. I'm marking this as a duplicate of bug 4144505. tom.santos@eng 1998-06-01
