Update cursor in an application with mouse move events. Show tooltip like floating image next to the cursor with coords.
Posted on 2008-11-15
I'm working in ArcMap (vba and/or vb and/ or vb.net) and would like to show the users current mouse movement dependent information as they move their cursor. For example, show users X, Y in a floating tooltip like box next to the current cursor. Naturally, I could put this info in the status bar but want the user to get feedback directly from the cursor as they move it. I'm thinking I could write a new icon each mouse move with updated text but can't think of a way to do this.
