Hi experts

Please help me to make 6 or so custom cursors (.CUR files already created) available in my VB.NET program.

BTW, Im posting from England where it is unusually hot. What about you guys ?

TIA, Patrick

Thanks for trying but the solution to which you linked was about setting the system cursors. I want to change cursors within an application.

Hi Patrick,

Use something like this to load your cursors from a file....

        Dim cur As New Cursor("C:\Path\Filename.cur")
        Me.Cursor = cur

BTW, I'm in northern Australia, so hot isn't that unusual :)

Thanks Wayne

Fine Wayne: that will get my program showing the cursors but I'm developing something I hope to market as shareware. Because of this, I don't really want to ship the cursors in separate files.

AIUI, it's possible to stick them in a resource and then access them from there. My probl;em is that I don't know how to do that.

I've heard about the heat in Northen Oz so ours in UK is nothing by comparision.

stay cool, man :-) regards, Patrick
