Ok...I've setup a standard drag and drop progress bar form component from VS 2010 on my target form. It's style set to Marquee under the VS properties panel.
I have the following function that runs when the form is "activated"
public void SearchLists_Activated(object sender, EventArgs e)
Cursor.Current = Cursors.WaitCursor;
Thread searchThread = new Thread(new ThreadStart(getLists));
// Wait for Search to Complete
// Need time-out function in case thread never comes back
Cursor.Current = Cursors.Default;
