**Summary:**Let $f$ be a $\kappa$-indefinite function defined on a locally compact group with values in the space of the continuous linear operators of a Kre\u{\i}n space. We prove that if $f$ is weakly measurable then $f = f^{\rm c} + f^0$, where $f^{\rm c}$ is a $\kappa$-indefinite and weakly continuous function and $f^0$ is a positive definite function which is zero locally almost everywhere. We also prove that if $f$ is weakly continuous then $f$ is strongly continuous. As an application we obtain that a weakly measurable group of unitary operators, on a separable Pontryagin space and with parameter on a locally compact group, is strongly continuous.
