VB6 : Need to make mousepointer change to hand when hover on combo box

I need to make mousepointer change to hand when hover on combo box.

I could do this for command buttons since they have mouse move event

But the problem is, combo box does not support mouse move event.

Any ideas?

Listbox is not an option. How about mouse move event which detects a location or something like that. I think I have have seen somewhere about it

Why do you need MouseMove event?
    Combo1.MousePointer = vbCustom
    Combo1.MouseIcon = LoadPicture("e:\MyProg\VB6\Cursors\hand.cur")

Open in new window


PS. As for tracking mouse/keyboard events systemwide - see my sample at http://www.freevbcode.com/ShowCode.asp?ID=1610

Glad I could help.
BTW, you can set MousePointer/MouseIcon properties in design mode as well
