Examples

The following code example creates a cursor from the Current cursor's Handle, changes its position and clipping rectangle. The result is the cursor will move up and to the left 50 pixels from where it is when the code is executed. Additionally, the cursor's clipping rectangle is changed to the bounds of the form (by default it is the user's whole screen). This example requires a Form and a Button to call this code when it is clicked.

void MoveCursor()
{
   // Set the Current cursor, move the cursor's Position,
   // and set its clipping rectangle to the form.

   this->Cursor = gcnew System::Windows::Forms::Cursor( ::Cursor::Current->Handle );
   ::Cursor::Position = Point(::Cursor::Position.X - 50,::Cursor::Position.Y - 50);
   ::Cursor::Clip = Rectangle(this->Location,this->Size);

}
private void MoveCursor()
{
   // Set the Current cursor, move the cursor's Position,
   // and set its clipping rectangle to the form. 

   this.Cursor = new Cursor(Cursor.Current.Handle);
   Cursor.Position = new Point(Cursor.Position.X - 50, Cursor.Position.Y - 50);
   Cursor.Clip = new Rectangle(this.Location, this.Size);
}
Private Sub MoveCursor()
   ' Set the Current cursor, move the cursor's Position,
   ' and set its clipping rectangle to the form. 

   Me.Cursor = New Cursor(Cursor.Current.Handle)
   Cursor.Position = New Point(Cursor.Position.X - 50, Cursor.Position.Y - 50)
   Cursor.Clip = New Rectangle(Me.Location, Me.Size)
End Sub

Remarks

This is not a copy of the handle; do not dispose of it.
