The cursor to be displayed while the mouse is within the control and both the DesktopApplication and DesktopWindow class’s MouseCursor properties are Nil.


If the DesktopApplication class's MouseCursor property is not Nil or the DesktopWindow's MouseCursor property is not Nil, then any control's MouseCursor property is ignored. You can use a cursor stored in the Cursors module. On Macintosh, you can also obtain a MouseCursor from a resource file.


This line in the Opening event of the control sets the default cursor to the finger pointer.
