Create an Active Cursor on the Scroll Bar

Environment: VC6 SP5, VC.NET, Windows 2000

This code enables you to change the cursor dynamically on the scroll bar of the window, with scrolling capabilities. The variable m_nCursorID is used to prevent multiple loading of the cursor.

CMyWnd is derived from CWnd.

UINT m_nCursorID;    //Current ID of the cursor resource

CMyWnd::CMyWnd()
{
  m_nCursorID = 0;
}

BOOL CMyWnd::OnSetCursor(CWnd* pWnd, UINT nHitTest, UINT message)
{
  if (nHitTest == HTVSCROLL)
  {
    //Change cursor on the vertical scroll bar
    if(m_nCursorID != IDC_VSCROLLBAR)
    {
      SetCursor(AfxGetApp()->LoadCursor(IDC_VSCROLLBAR));
      m_nCursorID = IDC_VSCROLLBAR;
    }
    return true;
  }
  else if (nHitTest == HTHSCROLL)
  {
    //Change cursor on the horizontal scroll bar
    if(m_nCursorID != IDC_HSCROLLBAR)
    {
      SetCursor(AfxGetApp()->LoadCursor(IDC_HSCROLLBAR));
      m_nCursorID = IDC_HSCROLLBAR;
    }
    return true;
  }
  else
  {
    if(m_nCursorID != 0) m_nCursorID = 0;
    return BaseClass::OnSetCursor(pWnd, nHitTest, message);
  }

}

                       CScrollBar* pScrollBar)
