Is it possible to change the mouse cursor from a visual basic program by placing your special mouse.cur in the program ? Instead of the "white arrow" so common place with windows, I just wanted to have my own cursor while my program runs even when it is in the taskbar. Dumb question no doubt, but I would like some code to this effect if possible ? I really don't know where to do this or even attempt to do this. Pretty New to Visual Basic !
