    Menu Mousepointer

    Iíve got a little application where Iíve changed the mousepointer to a hand when it passes over various labels, etc. Ė much like the links on a html page Ė to indicate that something will happen on a mouse click. Is it possible to do this same mouspointer change when the cursor moves over a menu (or menu items)?
    If so, how? As usual, Iíve used the search facility with no luck.

    TIA
    Dave

    Iím sorry. I donít understand. Are you saying there IS an option (if so, I canít find it) or that I have to use the API? Any clues?

    Confused of Solihull,

    There is no option for you to change the mouse pointer for the menues...may be API's might help you which I do not have much experience

    Right. So, is there anyone who can (mouse) point me in the right direction using the API? Is it even possible to change the mousepointer when moved over a menu?

    TIA

    Someone may suggest a way to do it with your current menus, but you might want to check out the vbAccelerator menu articles:

    They have ItemHighlight and MenuExit events

    Hmmm. Interesting but not too much help. Any way up, it doesnít seem like thereís a simple (easy) solution and Iím beginning to think that itíd be a lot of trouble for what is really just a visual effect. This is where I give up.

    Thanks for your trouble anyway.

    Dave
