Hi, need help thanx a lot for every thought suggested I want to change system cursor to custom one What i have to change in WinMain function? For now I know that cursor is loading by string winClass.hCursor = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_HAND); or winClass.hCursor = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW); and that is available to create custom cursor providing it in ext file for ex cursor1.cur, but how to reach this i do not know!!! is cursor1.cur a BMP file? what function does load it?

OK, I've found how to disable system cursor through
the following syscalls
SystemCursor(NULL);
and then
ShowCursor(TRUE);

May be I need to use DirectX support to get my own cursor on screen?

thanx a lot for any suggestions
