1. How to make mouse's OnClick event de-active
   and than change that cursor into different shape ?

   I will describe the process like this :

   {Mouse active}
   while Process do
   begin
     {Mouse de-active, change the cursor of mouse}
     .
     .
     .
   end;
   {Mouse active, change the cursor to default}

2. Any site that contains cursor's shapes ?
   How to use it in Delphi application ?

Hi,
Deactivating the mouse is rather complicated and risky but flushing the messagequeue of mousemessages is simple and safe, therefore...
 ...do you mean something like this?:

const
  crMyCursor = 1;
  ...
  Screen.Cursors[ crMyCursor ] := LoadCursor( hInstance, 'MYCURSOR' );

procedure TForm1.MyEvent(Sender: TObject);
var
  lpMsg: TMsg;
begin
  Screen.Cursor := crMyCursor;
  try
    Long_Process;

    // flush all mouse messages owned by this thread...
    while GetQueueStatus( QS_MOUSE ) <> 0 do GetMessage(lpMsg, 0, WM_MOUSEFIRST, WM_MOUSELAST);
  finally
    Screen.Cursor := crDefault;
  end;
end;

Is possible to make it as a procedure ?
Because I have many process (while...do) that need process deactivating the mouse.

Sure, why not.

procedure FlushMouseMessages;
begin
  while GetQueueStatus( QS_MOUSE ) <> 0 do GetMessage(lpMsg, 0, WM_MOUSEFIRST, WM_MOUSELAST);
end;

I'm sorry, I still confuse.
Where process to make mouse's OnClick event active and de-active.
I think (may be) any two procedure, procedure active and procedure de-active.
