Change Cursor when leaving a Form

After opening a Second Form as a Dialog Box, which is smaller then the Main Form, How do I change the cursor so that when it is over the Dialog Box, it shows as an arrow - and when it has left the Dialog Box, it changes to an Hour glass.

That is the cursor is an hour glass when not over the Dialog Box ?

hi
you can do this:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
const
 crHourGlass   = TCursor(-11);
 //you may need to change this const until you find the hourglass
 //seems to depend on how many cursors you have installed
 //mine is 11 but on another pc it was 18
begin
form2.cursor := crhourglass;
form2.show;
end;


you can also call
     SetSystemCursor(Screen.Cursors[crHourGlass], OCR_NORMAL);

or
     SetSystemCursor(Screen.Cursors[crDefault], OCR_NORMAL);

to change the cursors systemwide.
