B4J Question Equivalent to Delphi's ProcessMessages?

I've managed to do most things with B4J that I could do in Delphi, and am sooo impressed!
My problem is as follows:
If the user presses an 'Alt-S' an extract of data is done.
I have achieved all this with no problem BUT I need to change the Mouse cursor and the color of the text of a button before the processing is done. I have used a timer, but the color and mouse cursor do not change - any ideas/suggestions?

What is your program doing at that point? Why is it slow?
The program will connect to a Postgres Database, and a MS=SQLServer database, and extract data from both
on certain criteria, and then export the resultant information to a csv file for use by excel. The csv file creation, the
connections and extracts all work perfectly. The user has requested, however, that there is no indication that the program
is actually doing anything - the following snippet of code is where things need to be done (I guess):
If KeyCode = "S" Then
btnExtract.Style = "-fx-text-fill: Red;"
MainForm.RootPane.MouseCursor = fx.Cursors.WAIT
DoTheExtract 'The routine that does the connection and extract
MainForm.RootPane.MouseCursor = fx.Cursors.DEFAULT
InitialKey = False
MainForm.Close
End If
