Changing mouse cursor

I was wondering if anyone knows how to change the mouse cursor at run time?
I put  "SetCursor(m_hIcon);  in the mouse move event,  it works and everything, but it flashes, and it doesn't do it over command buttons, menus n'shit...   does anyone know how to make it changed for the program?

Your cursor change is undone by windows doing its default processing.

To change the cursor for a window you have to override OnSetCursor() and change the cursor in there, don't call the bas class if you've changed the cursor.

You should not(maybe cannot) change the cursor for every spot in your app. Each window that has the cursor over itself is responsible for the cursor's shape, unless a window has captured the cursor beforehand.

To change the cursor for your winodw without having to process OnSetCursor you can do it via the WNDCLASS. That structure can be modified in PreCreateWindow, via the CREATESTRUCT structure.

Well, I'm not gonna accept this anwer yet...
the reason why.. is because it didn't work.  :(
I put in the onsetcursor thingy.. and took out the mouse move event... and put the set cursor in the onsetcursor... and it did nothing at all.

not even a bit.

Do you know where I could get an example for this?

You can check the doc with devstudio, there surely are samples that show how it works. Try a query for WM_SETCURSOR or OnSetCursor.

In the meantime here's an example from my app:
BOOL CGBarTime::OnSetCursor(CWnd* pWnd, UINT nHitTest, UINT message)
{
    switch(m_mouseRegion) {
    case DISP_CURRENT:
        SetCursor(AfxGetApp()->LoadStandardCursor(IDC_SIZEWE));
        return TRUE;

    case NONE:
        if( m_pInstInfo && m_pRuler && (m_editRegion == NONE) &&
            m_pInstInfo->CommandGet() == CInstInfo::CMD_STOP) {
            SetCursor(AfxGetApp()->LoadCursor(IDC_ZOOM));
        }
        return TRUE;
    }

      return CWnd::OnSetCursor(pWnd, nHitTest, message);
}
