Accessing "SynonymInfo" lets the mouse cursor flicker

Hello,

we are building synonym lists for all words contained in a text using OLE
automation from our own software.

Before the list is buit the mouse cursor is switched to hourglass. every
time the SynonymInfo object is accessed the mouse cursor is reset to normal
(i think Word does that) and then back to hourglass. That results in a mouse
cursor that flickers while the loop is running (does not look very nice)

Do you have any hint how to avoid this mouse cursor switching?

Thanks in advance,
Ralf

If anyone has a similar problem: We had set the mouse cursor for our "Please
wait" status window. Setting "System.Cursor" inside the Word automation
object solved the flicker-problem. Seems that Word "steals" the current
focus (normally the focus should have been at our wait-window) every time
the internal SynonymInfo object is accessed.
