Custom Cursor

Sam
Hi All

Has anyone ever created a custom cursor that is bigger than 32x32 pixels? Is
it possible?

Regards,

Hi,

Real simple example.

Dim bm As New Bitmap(64, 64)

Dim g As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(bm)

g.Clear(Color.Transparent)

g.DrawEllipse(Pens.Red, 0, 0, 64, 64)

g.Dispose()

Dim cur As New Cursor(bm.GetHicon)

Me.Cursor = cur

You can create a cursor file which is larger than 32 32 pixels with VS.NET
("File" -> "New" -> "File..." -> "General" -> "Cursor", then right-click the
left panel and choose "Add image type..." from the context menu.

I followed your suggestions and I got my cursor set at 48x48. I did not know
that I could have my cursor greater than 32x32. This is awesome. Thanks guys
