CopyCursor macro

Copies the specified cursor.

Syntax

void CopyCursor(
   pcur
);

Parameters

pcur

Type: HCURSOR

A handle to the cursor to be copied.

Return value

None

Remarks

CopyCursor enables an application or DLL to obtain the handle to a cursor shape owned by another module. Then if the other module is freed, the application is still able to use the cursor shape.

Before closing, an application must call the DestroyCursor function to free any system resources associated with the cursor.

Do not use the CopyCursor function for animated cursors. Instead, use the CopyImage function.

CopyCursor is implemented as a call to the CopyIcon function.

#define CopyCursor(pcur) ((HCURSOR)CopyIcon((HICON)(pcur)))

Requirements

   
Minimum supported client Windows 2000 Professional [desktop apps only]
