The mouse allso gets invisible and now can you move around the 3d view) The mouse becomes visible when releaseing the mouse button. how to do this?

i don't know the what lightwave look like. but i think you need sth to change cursor, my idea is:
1. override OnLButtonDown() to set one flag, say "YourFlag" true.
2. override OnMouseMove() , check the flag , if it's true, then change the cursor :
    a. ::SetClassLong(GetSafeHwnd(), GCL_HCURSOR, NULL); to change the default cursor to null.
    b. use SetCursor() to set your new cursor;
    c. maybe ::SetClassLong(GetSafeHwnd(), GCL_HCURSOR, (LONG)m_hcurDefault) to let the default cursor back
3. override OnLButtonUp() , set the flag false.
