Set sub mouse cursor?



  • Is it possible to, not only change mousecursor, but to set a sub mouse cursor (similar to the picture)?

  • AFAIK the mouse cursor always is a single image. I'm pretty sure that goes for the cursor on your image, too. You can use an arbitrary QPixmap to create a QCursor and use it just like the predefined cursors:

    @
    QPixmap myPixmap(":/path/to/cursor/image");
    int hotspot = 0, hotspotY = 0;
    QCursor myCursor(myPixmap, hotspotX, hotspotY);
    @

    That way you can create every kind of special cursor you might need.



  • Thanks! Not as easy as I would have hoped, but at least it is doable.
