Changing drag/drop cursor?!??!

I am trying to use the MFC OLE drag&drop mechanism (OnDragEnter/OnDragOver...).  I can't figure out how to provide my own drag cursor.  I have even provided my own CDropSource object and overrode GiveFeedback() to try and hook the right place.  I am using a CImageList and so I call CImageList::SetDragCursorImage() inside of GiveFeedback(), but the cursor never changes.

I could be going about this all wrong, I have tried many things.  But they never have any effect on the cursor what-so-ever.

Does anyone have some sample source that does this? How about a good reference for some decent help or docs on this?

HELP!!!!

I think that you are going into right direction but you have to call Win API ShowCursor( FALSE ) to hide existing cursor. This should work for CImageList.

Well, I have tried that.  Sorry I didn't mention that in the orignal post (but I don't think there is room to fit in all the things I have tried).  And when I called it it just turns off the cursor so that I have NO cursor.
