I want to get my own cursor shape.
Sure, VB supports custom type(user-made).
But it is limited by region(within only its control).
I want to use it regardless of region(on the full windows).
==
I tried somthing.
LoadCursorFromFile, SetCursor, ShowCursor..
Above APIs are able to help use my own type cursor.
BUT !!
If MouseMove Event is occurred, the shape is returned to
normal type by a certain reason(I don't know why shape changes).

Let me know how I use my own cursor for a long time.

Thank U !

To change the cursor for every window, use SetSystemCursor.

Declare Function SetSystemCursor Lib "user32" Alias "SetSystemCursor" (ByVal hcur As Long, ByVal id As Long) As Long

hcur is a handle to a cursor.  You can retrieve it with LoadCursor, but be aware that this won't work for animated cursors.  To load them, you will have to use LoadIcon.

id is the ID of the cursor that you are replacing.  For example, if you are changing from the normal cursor to your custom corsor, the id would be OCR_NORMAL.  The other cursors are listed in the Win32Api.txt under OCR_
