Sets the cursor used when hot tracking is enabled for a list view control.

HCURSOR SetHotCursor(
   HCURSOR hc 



A handle to a cursor resource, used to represent the hot cursor.

The handle to the previous hot cursor resource being used by the list view control.

This member function implements the behavior of the Win32 macro, ListView_SetHotCursor, as described in the Platform SDK.

The hot cursor, only visible when hover selection is enabled, appears as the cursor passes over any list view item. Hover selection is enabled by setting the LVS_EX_TRACKSELECT extended style.

See the example for CListCtrl::GetHotCursor.
