[Suggestion] Aero cursor for resizing a skin

Post by nek »

Is there any chance of implementing aero cursors for resizing a skin?
We can use any cursor files by copying to @Resources\Cursors and specifying MouseActionCursorName=aero_ns.cur for now.
But it will be great if we can use aero resizing cursors without copying files.
> MouseActionCursorName - Rainmeter Docs

Demo skin | PluginWebView, Mouse.dll, HotKey.dll and EdgeWebView (477 MB or more)
Image

Current | Mouse.cpp, Mouse.h - Rainmeter repository on GitHub

Resize | LoadCursorA function - Microsoft Docs

I have clean installed OS and verifyed whether aero_xxx.cur files are exist. C:\Windows\Cursor\

Thanks for the suggestion! I believe death.crafter asked for this a while back as well.

I added several cursor name options:
  • NO: Red slashed circle
  • SIZE_ALL: Cross cursor with arrows on each end
  • SIZE_NESW: Line with arrows pointing northeast and southwest
  • SIZE_NS: Line with arrows pointing north and south
  • SIZE_NWSE: Line with arrows pointing northwest and southeast
  • SIZE_WE: Line with arrows pointing west and east
  • UPARROW: Arrow pointing up
  • WAIT: Either the standard hourglass or circle "wait" cursor (similar to the BUSY cursor, without the "arrow")
