Hello experts,


i am creating an application that is duplicating the mouse pointer
to do that, i have a timer running, that is executing with an interval 30
this code is executing:
tmpCursor = CopyCursor(GetCursor)
DrawIcon frmMain.hdc, 0, 0, tmpCursor


this works fine, as long as the mouse cursor is changed by the ide
whenever an other program changes the cursor (word, firefox, or explorer) the cursor on my form doesnt change

what can i do to update it correctly?

GetCursor corresponds to the cursor property of the running application that calls it, and so it won't be affected by the other programs I believe.
