Comments

A graphical formfield widget can have a user-defined cursor displayed when the mouse is hovering over it. Unlike predefined mouse cursors, user-defined mouse cursors are displayed even if the field is guarded. User-defined cursors can be assigned statically in the Screen Painter or dynamically using the MOUSEPOINTER attribute in the existing FORM SET command.
