Mouse Cursors changing and getting stuck

Posted on 2004-08-23
Last Modified: 2010-04-05
I am writing in D7 and a problem that I have been encountering (and attributing to the IDE) is now occuring in the wild.

After some time using the app, a mouse cursor will pass over a window handle or something and then get STUCK as a horiz resize for instance.  This happens almost exclusively with resize cursors and the only solution is to goto the mouse control panel and reset.  how wierd is this?  

I am a pragmatic man.  I would accept almost any solution that works including resetting their cursors to system defaults (the defaults in the CP) whenever moving over a window or anything we can think of.  

I am using suipack from sunisoft in case anyone thinks that might be an issue

Thanks! This is rather urgent

do you capture the mouse somewhere?

try following
  screen.cursor := crDefault;

just guessing

no dice.   it looks like the cursor changes only for the app itself.  when moving the cursor off the forms it  goes back to normal then wrong again when moved over

Looks like that last one did the trick.....

I would like to know... can you think of a good time to fire that code?   I have totally rigged it with an on mouse move over one of my components, but I know thats not a realistically useful solution

usual it would be better to search the cause of this problem

the suggestion above is only a workaround.

well, the best way to do this is  hard to say,
easiest would be to use a timer which fires all two/three seconds

I believe I've tracked the problem down to the jvmovablebevel control from the jedi pack.  Unfortunately I'm not skilled enough to fix the actual problem.  I have posted a message in the jvcl newsgroup and I hopefully I will get a solution there.
Thanks for your help as usal.
