Control.CursorChanged Control.CursorChanged Control.CursorChanged Control.CursorChanged Event

Definition

Occurs when the value of the Cursor property changes.

public:
 event EventHandler ^ CursorChanged;
public event EventHandler CursorChanged;
member this.CursorChanged : EventHandler 
Public Custom Event CursorChanged As EventHandler 

Examples

The following code example demonstrates changing the mouse cursor using the Control.Cursor property, the Cursor class, and the Cursors class. The example creates a form that contains a ComboBox control, a Panel control, and a ListView control. The ComboBox contains all cursors provided by the Cursors class. When the user selects a mouse cursor in the ComboBox, the Control.Cursor property is set to the selected cursor, which updates the cursor for the Panel. The ListView is updated every time the Control.CursorChanged event occurs.
