 Do it using the Image Editor that installs with Delphi, or even create a new .res file - and then specify a {$R new.res} directive in one of your .pas files (where the new.res should be the appropriate filename).
  Then, load the cursors in your .pas code, like so -

Screen.Cursors [kFill] := LoadCursor (HInstance, 'FILL');

  where kFill is an example of a constant value to index into the cursors array, and where 'FILL' is an example of the name of a cursor (as specified in the Image Editor).

  Then, you can just say Screen.Cursor := kFill;  at any time in your program (replacing the constant with whatever value is appropriate for you).
