    Can you recommend me a method to obtain ajax loadingpanel-like functionality when using WinForms controls? This would help in showing to a user that a background operation is currently in progress on a particular part of the application (for example a control in the bottom-right corner of the application) while still allowing him to browse through the rest of the application. I feel that simply changing the cursor to a waitcursor is not enough, as he has to be hovering the mouse over the usercontrol to realize that work is being done related to that component.

    Hello Cristian Apavaloaiei,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    In your case I can suggest using the RadProgressBar control. It is designed to indicate the progress of a long-running process. The combination of RadProgressBar and WaitCursor will provide the user the needed information about the running process. At the same time the user will be able to browse through the rest of the application. I have prepared a sample project that illustrates this idea. Please refer to the attached file.

    I hope you will find my suggestion useful. Please let me know whether it meets your expectations.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
