    Default How to set cursor to a HAND?

    I want to change the cursor on a form to change to a HAND when it rolls over "button6".

    I found the "Insert Image" for the Mouse Cursor in the Properties for Button6, but don't see a "hand" image there. Yet I see a hand in other parts of the program.

    Thanks,

    ~ Tom

    Hi Tom - set the property for the "Button inline style" to:

    cursor:pointer;

    Hi Steve,

    Sorry, but I'm not able to follow your instructions. Where do I set the "Button inline style"? Don't see it in properties.

    For a hand you're saying use: "cursor:hand" ?

    Please clarify

    ~ Tom

    Found it.

    Put the following on the OnFlyover event for the button: Button6.object.mouse_cursor = "$sys_cursor_hand"

    Good find.

    If you're going to use it in multiple instances you can simplify the copy and paste by making the code

    this.object.mouse_cursor = "$sys_cursor_hand"
    There can be only one.
