    Question Creating Custom Arrow for label

    Label within class
    I can change the cursor icon from the Qt ui dropdown list.

    I'm trying to add my own cursor a "circumpunct"
    This is what I got:
    Qt Code:
    1. setOverrideCursor(QCursor(QPixmap("CircumpunctCursor.bmp")));
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    Not sure where to place the code?
    & is the code correct?

    Thanks

    Default Re: Creating Custom Arrow for label

    Are you trying to change the cursor for:
    Qt Code:
    1. QCursor customCursor(QPixmap("CircumpunctCursor.bmp"));
    2.  
    3. // the entire program:
    4. QApplication::setOverrideCursor(customCursor);
    5. ...
    6. QApplication::restoreOverrideCursor();
    7.  
    8. // or just the one widget:
    9. widget->setCursor(customCursor);
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    You are using a relative file path so this code will only work if the BMP file is found in the current working directory of the process.
