Cursor to Wait For

Select the mouse cursor from the drop down list. The name as well as a graphical representation of the cursor are displayed to make sure the correct cursor type is selected.


Note: The mouse cursor must remain in the requested state for at least one half second in order for Macro Express to recognize the cursor type.





Wait Indefinitely

With this option checked, the macro does not resume until the Wait For action specified has occurred. 


Wait at most

With this option selected, the macro waits the number of  hours, minutes and seconds specified for the Wait For action to occur. If that action does not take place within the specified time frame, the macro takes the action selected in the On Error tab.
