I'm implementing a tooltip in my AWT applet. To avoid the mouse cursor from covering part of the tooltip, I need to know the size of the cursor so that I can position the tooltip properly. How do I determine the cursor's width and height? Thanks.

 There is a Cursor class in the java.awt package defined. I am not sure if this will be helpful but you can take a look. It might come in handy.

  Hope it helps.

I do know about the Cursor class, but there is nothing about the size.

It seems that there is no way of doing that with Java 1.1. I shall delete this question then.

No, and I think it's a lot of work for such a trivial problem. It's not really important so I shall not be looking into it anymore.

Is it ok with you if I delete this question? Thanks for trying to help though.
