    Change cursor on single edit control

    Hello, I have problems changing the cursor over a single edit control. I'm using 'SetClassLong' to apply the new cursor over an edit:

    Code:
    HWND h_disp;//declared as global
    
    void crea_display(HWND hwnd)
    {
    HCURSOR hc;
    
    h_disp=CreateWindowEx(WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE,"EDIT","",WS_CHILD|WS_VISIBLE|WS_VSCROLL|ES_AUTOVSCROLL|ES_READONLY|
    ES_WANTRETURN|ES_MULTILINE,0,0,0,0,hwnd,NULL,GetModuleHandle(0),NULL);
    SendMessage(h_tracer,WM_SETFONT,(WPARAM)hf2,(LPARAM)MAKELPARAM(TRUE,0));
    
    hc=LoadCursor(NULL,IDC_NO);
    SetClassLong(h_disp,GCL_HCURSOR,(LONG)hc);
    }
    The idea is to set the IDC_ARROW cursor, but for testing purposes I have used the slashed circle. It works well over that 'h_disp' control, the problem is that also is displayed over all other edit controls of the window (even on all the edit controls attached to dialogs).

    It is possible to set a cursor for a single control?

    Thank's in advance

    Your cursor change is being applied to all windows of the class type "Edit". One possible solution would be to register your own custom "Edit" window complete with its own procedure. Then create your edit windows using the custom class type.

    Hey BobS0327, thank's for your time and help

    That's a good idea, I'lll take a look at it. Also I have thought on set the text ibeam while processing the initdialog message on dialogs where I need editable edit controls, and reset to the arrow while quit. The cursor is only for stetical purposes since on the main window I have readonly edit controls where I wouldn't like to display the text ibeam cursor.

    Thank's

    Ok I have realized now (sorry if that seems stupid): SetClassLong, that means 'set' for the 'class' the 'long' value, that is applyed to the class, not to the single control
