Method XbpActiveXControl():setPointer() Foundation
Defines the shape of the mouse pointer displayed by an ActiveX control.
:setPointer( [<cDllName>], <nID>, [<nType>] ) --> lSuccess
This method returns .T. (true) if the mouse pointer's shape was set as requested. Otherwise, .F. (false) is returned.
The method :setPointer() defines the shape of the mouse pointer when the mouse is moved across an ActiveX control. The shape of the mouse pointer is specified using a numeric identifier in parameter <nID>. This can be one of the mouse pointer contants defined in XBP.CH.
Please note that ActiveX controls use different mouse pointer constants than those normally used with Xbase Parts. However, :setPointer()attempts to map the standard Xbase++ pointer shapes to their ActiveX counterpart whenever possible. If a non-standard mouse pointer is to be displayed by an ActiveX control, :setProperty() may be used together with one of the pointer contants defined in ACTIVEX.CH.
The following table lists the standard Xbase++ mouse pointer shapes, along with their corresponding ActiveX pointer constant. If no mapping exists, the corresponding constant is listed as "undefined".
