Cursors.Hand Property

Gets the hand cursor, typically used when hovering over a Web link.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public static Cursor Hand { get; }
/** @property */
public static Cursor get_Hand ()

public static function get Hand () : Cursor

Property Value

The Cursor that represents the hand cursor.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the Control.OnMouseHover method in a derived class and using the Hand property. To run the example, paste the following code in a new form and paste this class, forming the same file, after the form. Add a button of type FunButton to the form.

public class FunButton:
	Button

{
	protected override void OnMouseHover(System.EventArgs e)
	{

		// Get the font size in Points, add one to the
		// size, and reset the button's font to the larger
		// size.
		float fontSize = Font.SizeInPoints;
		fontSize += 1;
		System.Drawing.Size buttonSize = Size;
		this.Font = new System.Drawing.Font(
			Font.FontFamily, fontSize, Font.Style);

		// Increase the size width and height of the button 
		// by 5 points each.
		Size = new System.Drawing.Size(Size.Width+5, Size.Height+5);

		// Call myBase.OnMouseHover to activate the delegate.
		base.OnMouseHover(e);
	}

	protected override void OnMouseMove(MouseEventArgs e)
	{

		// Make the curser the Hand curser when the mouse moves 
		// over the button.
		Cursor = Cursors.Hand;

		// Call MyBase.OnMouseHover to activate the delegate.
		base.OnMouseHover(e);
	}

public class FunButton extends Button
{
    protected void OnMouseHover(System.EventArgs e)
    {
        // Get the font size in Points, add one to the
        // size, and reset the button's font to the larger
        // size.
        float fontSize = get_Font().get_SizeInPoints();
        fontSize += 1;
        System.Drawing.Size buttonSize = get_Size();
        this.set_Font(new System.Drawing.Font(get_Font().get_FontFamily(), 
            fontSize, get_Font().get_Style()));
        // Increase the size width and height of the button 
        // by 5 points each.
        set_Size(new System.Drawing.Size(get_Size().get_Width() + 5, 
            get_Size().get_Height() + 5));
        // Call myBase.OnMouseHover to activate the delegate.
        super.OnMouseHover(e);
    } //OnMouseHover

    protected void OnMouseMove(MouseEventArgs e)
    {
        // Make the curser the Hand curser when the mouse moves 
        // over the button.
        set_Cursor(Cursors.get_Hand());
        // Call MyBase.OnMouseHover to activate the delegate.
        super.OnMouseHover(e);
    } //OnMouseMove
