Inside Macintosh: Imaging With QuickDraw /
Chapter 8 - Cursor Utilities / Cursor Utilities Reference


This section describes the cursor ('CURS') resource, the color cursor ('crsr') resource, and the animated cursor ('acur') resource. Your application can use a 'CURS' resource to create a black-and-white cursor other than the standard cursors or a 'crsr' resource to create a color cursor to display on color screens. Your application can use an 'acur' resource to create an animated cursor to display when a medium-length operation is taking place. These resource types should be marked as purgeable. See the discussion of the pointing device in Macintosh Human Interface Guidelines for more information on when to use different types of cursors in your application; see also the discussion of color in the same book.
