Today just a little article about Silverlight Cursors, made because there’s no screenshots of cursors on the msdn.
So, first, how to change the cursor when hovering over a UI element ?
- Use the XAML Cursor property of this FrameworkElement :
<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White" Cursor="None"/>
Here is the full list and you can test them :
Then if you want to change the cursor programmatically, use the same property in this way :
using System.Windows.Input; /* ** Cursors is a Static Class in System.Windows.Input ** defining a set of default mouse pointers ** usable with the Cursor Class */ myFrameworkElement.Cursor = Cursors.Arrow;
Finally, if you want to create a custom cursor, the only way i found is to set the cursor to None and load an image, following the cursor programatically (use the MouseMove event).
