Status notifications in tool tip.

Another way to inform user about minor processes in the application is show tool tip behind the mouse cursor.

If you move mouse cursor outside of the flash application, tool tip will be centered on application. And if you move cursor back to the application, tool tip will be attached to mouse cursor.

For this example I have created class called MouseIdleMonitor, it helps me to track mouse activity (last x,y coordinates on the stage) and indicate when mouse become idle.

Also you can create your own animated cursor and using CursorManager change it according to situation.
