Hello Again (you guys are the greatest!)

Ok, I am making a user control that needs to work like a togle switch (3 pos).  What I would like to do is if the mouse is hovering in the top 1/3 of the control set my cursor to an up arrow, if it is middle 1/3 a plus cursor, and the botton 1/3 a down arrow.  Any ideas on how to accomplish something like this?

Perhaps something like this will work:

    Private Sub UserControl1_MouseMove(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles MyBase.MouseMove
        If e.X < Me.Height / 3 Then
            Me.Cursor = Cursors.PanNorth
        ElseIf e.X < Me.Height * 2 / 3 Then
            Me.Cursor = Cursors.Cross
        Else
            Me.Cursor = Cursors.PanSouth
        End If
    End Sub

When does the MouseMove event fire?  Didn't seem to work for me.

Sorry,

Should be using e.Y instead of e.X.
