    hi,

    i have the following code for drawing a crosshair cursor & it works:

    'Custom cursor
    'Declare bitmap
    Dim bm As New Bitmap(64, 64)
    'Declare graphics
    Dim g As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(bm)
    'Clear the graphics
    g.Clear(Color.Transparent)
    'Declare cursor pen and set colr + width
    Dim myCursorPen As Pen = New Pen(Color.White, 2)
    'Draw cross hair
    g.DrawLine(myCursorPen, 32, 0, 32, 64)
    g.DrawLine(myCursorPen, 0, 32, 64, 32)
    'Dispose the graphics
    g.Dispose()
    'Declare a cursor object
    Dim cur As New Cursor(bm.GetHicon)
    'Set the cursor object
    Me.Cursor = cur

    the problem is that its 64*64 and i cannot increase it. how can make
    it to 500*500?? if i try it does not work!

    any ideas?

    thanks
    pj

    Instead of using a cursor, hide the cursor and draw the crosshair on the
    desired position onto the form/control.
