Hi Michael...

The FDK does not specifically provide access to the mouse pointer, so 
this would be a combination of FDK and Windows API calls .. however, I 
don't believe that there is a "hover" event in the FDK, so I don't know 
how you'd get information about the underlying object from FM to be able 
to modify the cursor at any given instance. You can get information 
about an object on mouse click events, but not a hover.

You might try the frame_dev Yahoo group to see if anyone there has any 

Good luck.
