    mouse pointer / cursor questions

    gdmt
      hello everybody!

      1


      hey, i wanna customize my mouse pointer / cursor with a hand image.
      and it looks like this:
      defaut cursor = open hand.
      over a clikable element = closed hand with a straight finger (like the default cursor over any html link)
      pressed mouse button = same as the previous, but rotated a few degrees

      and i get this code to add to the image cursor:

      onClipEvent (load) {
      Mouse.hide();
      }
      onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
      this._x = _parent._xmouse;
      this._y = _parent._ymouse;
      }

      onClipEvent (unload) {
      Mouse.show();
      }

      then i have to add this code to any button:

      on (press) {
      tellTarget ("/cursor") {
      gotoAndStop("down");
      }
      }
      on (rollOver) {
      tellTarget ("/cursor") {
      gotoAndStop("over");
      }
      }
      on (rollOut) {
      tellTarget ("/cursor") {
      gotoAndStop("default");
      }
      }

      and a button with the movie size, at the bottom of all layers with this code:

      on (press) {
      tellTarget ("/cursor") {
      gotoAndStop("down");
      }
      }
      on (release, releaseOutside, rollOver, rollOut, dragOver, dragOut) {
      tellTarget ("/cursor") {
      gotoAndStop("default");
      }
      }

      is there an easy way to do it, like in css?

      <STYLE TYPE="text/css">
      body {
      cursor: url("default.cur");
      }
      a {
      cursor: url("hand.cur");
      }
      </STYLE>

      i also would like this, to work in dynamic textfields 'cause i load a .html file with links wich cntrol the movie and open external links... the way i do works, but when i move the mouse over a link of this dynamic textfield it also shows de default cursor, so i get MY image hand cursor with the default cursor...

      hope u understand what i want, my english isn't good...

      thanx in advance!
