Examples

The following example shows an event handler for a RadioButton that is used to toggle the scope of a cursor change between a single element and the entire application. If the control that raised the event is the rbScopeElementRadioButton, a flag that denotes the scope of the cursor change is set and OverrideCursor is set to null. If the control that raised the event is the rbScopeApplicationRadioButton, a flag that denotes the scope of the cursor change is set and OverrideCursor is set to the Cursor property of the Border control named DisplayArea.

// Determines the scope the new cursor will have.
//
// If the RadioButton rbScopeElement is selected, then the cursor
// will only change on the display element.
// 
// If the Radiobutton rbScopeApplication is selected, then the cursor
// will be changed for the entire application
//
private void CursorScopeSelected(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    RadioButton source = e.Source as RadioButton;

    if (source != null)
    {
        if (source.Name == "rbScopeElement")
        {
            // Setting the element only scope flag to true
            cursorScopeElementOnly = true;

            // Clearing out the OverrideCursor.  
            Mouse.OverrideCursor = null;

        }
        if (source.Name == "rbScopeApplication")
        {
           // Setting the element only scope flag to false
           cursorScopeElementOnly = false;

           // Forcing the cursor for all elements. 
           Mouse.OverrideCursor = DisplayArea.Cursor;
        }
    }
}

Private Sub CursorScopeSelected(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    Dim source As RadioButton = CType(e.Source, RadioButton)

    If (source.Name = "rbScopeElement") Then
        ' Setting the element only scope flag to true.
        cursorScopeElementOnly = True
        ' Clearing out the OverrideCursor.
        Mouse.OverrideCursor = Nothing

    End If
    If (source.Name = "rbScopeApplication") Then
        ' Setting the element only scope flag to false.
        cursorScopeElementOnly = False
        ' Forcing the cursor for all elements.
        Mouse.OverrideCursor = DisplayArea.Cursor
    End If
End Sub

Remarks

The Cursor that OverrideCursor is set to will be applied to the whole application.

To clear the override Cursor, set OverrideCursor to null.

Setting OverrideCursor to None will force the mouse cursor not to be displayed, but mouse events are still processed.
