This method returns .T. (true) if the mouse pointer's shape is defined. Otherwise, .F. (false) is returned.
The method :setPointer() defines the shape of the mouse pointer when it is moved across a window or Xbase Part, respectively. The resource for the mouse pointer is identified by a numeric value and the corresponding resource file must be linked to an executable file (EXE or DLL).
If an animated pointer is to be set with the :setPointer() method, the corresponding ANI file must be compiled into the application as a user-defined resource as shown in the following example.
