I've been using C++ to create a Win32 application. I have a main window which two child controls at the moment. One of those is a custom class window which is acting as a frame and the other is a Common Control ListBox. I've been able to set up a custom cursor for both the Main Window and the Frame when I registered their classes - like this: WNDCLASSEX wc; wc....... (all the other parameters) wc.hCursor = LoadCursor(hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDC_SWORD)); And that worked. However since the Listbox is a common control I can't assign it a custom cursor the same way because it is pre-registered. A friend suggested using "SetClassLong()" but I haven't got that working (it compiles ok but it doesn't work). And I thought of passing WM_SETCURSOR but I haven't figured out exactly how the parameters should be. Does anyone have any suggestions? [edited by - Ancalagon on March 25, 2003 8:27:19 AM]
