    Angry Loading a cursor

    how the hell do you do it? i made my own custom cursor, and it wont load when i put the function in

    WndClass.hCursor = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_MAINCUR1);

    or whatevere now see this is jut me, but is till dont know how to do it just yet, and i would like some com[plete help, like do i need to input some special stuyfff in a header file and what do i put in the main cpp file to load the cursor i need, so lets just pretend that the cursors file name is maincur1.cur. i know you need to put something that defines it in a header file, but i dont know how to do tha.

    and would the same thing be needed to load a custom icon?

    Not sure, but you might have to specify a HINSTANCE argument instead of just NULL. Pass the first argument that is passed to WinMain.

    Second, add the cursor to your resources, give it an ID, then use:
    LoadCursor(hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(MyCursorID));
