Cursor objects to mousepointer numeric types ?

How do I convert cursor objects to mousepointer numeric types ?

I am converting VB6 and have a function argument which has become
a windows.forms.cursors object. The function requires an argument
which is a Short:


giving a compiler error.

Is there a conversion from cursors objects  to numerics ?

What is SetMPoint()?

It doesn't seem to be a Win API or any built-in VB6 or VB.Net function.

We may be of more help if you show us the original code for SetMPoint() and how you call it...

I would look at the bigger picture, since VB.NET provides different interfaces for what you could do in VB6.

SetMPoint ( arg As Short ) as Boolean
is a custom mouse pointer.

It sets:

cursor = arg

This also generates a compile error, since cursor is not a numeric in .NET.

Yes, but what are you trying to do?  Are you trying to "push" the current mouse pointer, and then reset it later?
