Change cursor when dragging?

Post by ScotProf » Thu Jun 07, 2018 6:50 pm

XMBC 2.18 beta
Windows 10
VicTsing MM057 2.4G Wireless Mouse

I am new to XMBC (I've used it for perhaps 3 weeks). I have middle-click set to activate dragging (of files / windows), and it works perfectly. However, the cursor remains unaltered when dragging is activated. From reading the user manual, I see that it's possible to change the cursor for specific "movement" functions. Would it be possible to add a setting (and .cur file) whereby the cursor would change when drag is activated (and restore to default cursor when drag is inactivated)?

I see, too, that there is a new function in the recent beta(s) - "drag window under cursor"; if the above request can be granted, perhaps that cursor also could be used when this new function is invoked?

Many thanks - best wishes.

I've added this to the todo list, I don't think it will be a problem, but not sure yet when I will find the time to do it.

Regards,
Phil
