DESCRIPTION
       The QCursor class provides a mouse cursor with an arbitrary shape.

       This class is mainly used to create mouse cursors that are associated with particular
       widgets and to get and set the position of the mouse cursor.

       Qt has a number of standard cursor shapes, but you can also make custom cursor shapes
       based on a QBitmap, a mask and a hotspot.

       To associate a cursor with a widget, use QWidget::setCursor(). To associate a cursor with
       all widgets (normally for a short period of time), use QApplication::setOverrideCursor().

       To set a cursor shape use QCursor::setShape() or use the QCursor constructor which takes
       the shape as argument, or you can use one of the predefined cursors defined in the
       CursorShape enum.

       If you want to create a cursor with your own bitmap, either use the QCursor constructor
       which takes a bitmap and a mask or the constructor which takes a pixmap as arguments.

       To set or get the position of the mouse cursor use the static methods QCursor::pos() and
       QCursor::setPos().

MEMBER FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION
QCursor::QCursor ()
       Constructs a cursor with the default arrow shape.

QCursor::QCursor ( int shape )
       Constructs a cursor with the specified shape.

       See CursorShape for a list of shapes.

       See also setShape().

QCursor::QCursor ( const QBitmap & bitmap, const QBitmap & mask, int hotX = -1, int hotY = -1 )
       Constructs a custom bitmap cursor.

       bitmap and mask make up the bitmap. hotX and hotY define the cursor's hot spot.

       If hotX is negative, it is set to the bitmap().width()/2. If hotY is negative, it is set
       to the bitmap().height()/2.

       The cursor bitmap (B) and mask (M) bits are combined like this:

       B=1 and M=1 gives black.

       B=0 and M=1 gives white.

       B=0 and M=0 gives transparent.

       B=1 and M=0 gives an undefined result.

       Use the global color color0 to draw 0-pixels and color1 to draw 1-pixels in the bitmaps.

       Valid cursor sizes depend on the display hardware (or the underlying window system). We
       recommend using 32x32 cursors, because this size is supported on all platforms. Some
       platforms also support 16x16, 48x48 and 64x64 cursors.

       See also QBitmap::QBitmap() and QBitmap::setMask().

QCursor::QCursor ( const QPixmap & pixmap, int hotX = -1, int hotY = -1 )
       Constructs a custom pixmap cursor.

       pixmap is the image. It is usual to give it a mask (set using QPixmap::setMask()). hotX
       and hotY define the cursor's hot spot.

       If hotX is negative, it is set to the pixmap().width()/2. If hotY is negative, it is set
       to the pixmap().height()/2.

       Valid cursor sizes depend on the display hardware (or the underlying window system). We
       recommend using 32x32 cursors, because this size is supported on all platforms. Some
       platforms also support 16x16, 48x48 and 64x64 cursors.

       Currently, only black-and-white pixmaps can be used.

       See also QPixmap::QPixmap() and QPixmap::setMask().

QCursor::QCursor ( const QCursor & c )
       Constructs a copy of the cursor c.

QCursor::QCursor ( HCURSOR handle )
       Creates a cursor with the specified window system handle handle.

       Warning: Portable in principle, but if you use it you are probably about to do something
       non-portable. Be careful.

QCursor::~QCursor ()
       Destroys the cursor.

const QBitmap * QCursor::bitmap () const
       Returns the cursor bitmap, or 0 if it is one of the standard cursors.

void QCursor::cleanup () [static]
       Internal function that deinitializes the predefined cursors. This function is called from
       the QApplication destructor.

       See also initialize().

HANDLE QCursor::handle () const
       Returns the window system cursor handle.

       Warning: Portable in principle, but if you use it you are probably about to do something
       non-portable. Be careful.

QPoint QCursor::hotSpot () const
       Returns the cursor hot spot, or (0, 0) if it is one of the standard cursors.

void QCursor::initialize () [static]
       Internal function that initializes the predefined cursors. This function is called from
       the QApplication constructor.

       See also cleanup().

const QBitmap * QCursor::mask () const
       Returns the cursor bitmap mask, or 0 if it is one of the standard cursors.

QCursor &; QCursor::operator= ( const QCursor & c )
       Assigns c to this cursor and returns a reference to this cursor.

QPoint QCursor::pos () [static]
       Returns the position of the cursor (hot spot) in global screen coordinates.

       You can call QWidget::mapFromGlobal() to translate it to widget coordinates.

       See also setPos(), QWidget::mapFromGlobal(), and QWidget::mapToGlobal().

       Examples:

void QCursor::setPos ( int x, int y ) [static]
       Moves the cursor (hot spot) to the global screen position (x, y).

       You can call QWidget::mapToGlobal() to translate widget coordinates to global screen
       coordinates.

       See also pos(), QWidget::mapFromGlobal(), and QWidget::mapToGlobal().

void QCursor::setPos ( const QPoint & ) [static]
       This is an overloaded member function, provided for convenience. It behaves essentially
       like the above function.

void QCursor::setShape ( int shape )
       Sets the cursor to the shape identified by shape.

       See CursorShape for the list of cursor shapes.

       See also shape().

int QCursor::shape () const
       Returns the cursor shape identifier. The return value is one of the CursorShape enum
       values (cast to an int).

       See also setShape().

RELATED FUNCTION DOCUMENTATION
QDataStream &; operator<< ( QDataStream & s, const QCursor & c )
       Writes the cursor c to the stream s.

       See also Format of the QDataStream operators.

QDataStream &; operator>> ( QDataStream & s, QCursor & c )
       Reads a cursor from the stream s and sets c to the read data.

       See also Format of the QDataStream operators.
