New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

busy cursor in maintain app.
Platinum Member

I have deployed a number of maintain applications to an AIX platform (WF 5.3.3), and while they work nicely, there is one anomaly that has eluded my debugging.

When I run the apps on AIX, the cursor shows a busy (hourglass) indication everywhere within the page, except over controls, where it changes to the proper cursor type. While the programs function well, the cursor is annoying and misleading

The cursor acts properly when the apps are tested in Developer Studio (5.3.6), and the cursor property is set to 'default' on all the Forms. I've tried to follow the cursor references in the various Maintain Javascript files, without success.

Does anyone have an idea of what I can do to get the cursor to show it's regular pointer indication in these deployed Maintain applications ?

I would guess you are missing a js file somewhere.

Simple test. Get a view source of your maintain app running. Copy and paste into an html file.

In the body tag remove all references to onload other than = 'auto' and run the html file native from the same location. Does your cursor change now?

If so check that the link to ibi_html is correct. You can run a maintain without some of these js files! But if one part of the onload fails, the rest will not run.

(This is in 7.6, I think that 5.x is the sameish)

I saw this problem recently when someone was using an Onload function. By this I mean a JavaScript function that is supposed to run everytime the form is refreshed. I use this technique a lot. If you do have this technique and put this code as the last line, or even if you don't, create a javascript and just have: = 'auto'

This way the cursor will always return to the arrow.
