MouseIcon, MousePointer Properties Example [Outlook 2003 Forms Help]

Office 2003

The following example demonstrates how to specify a mouse pointer that is appropriate for a specific control or situation. You can assign one of several available mouse pointers using the MousePointer property.

This example works in the following ways:

  • Choose a mouse pointer from the ListBox to change the mouse pointer associated with the ListBox.

To use this example, copy this sample code to the Script Editor of a form. To run the code you need to open the form so the Open event will activate. Make sure that the form contains:

  • A ListBox named ListBox1.
Dim ListBox1

Sub Item_Open()
    set ListBox1 = Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages.Item("P.2").Controls("ListBox1")
    'Load ListBox with MousePointer choices
    ListBox1.Clear 
    ListBox1.AddItem "Default"
    ListBox1.AddItem "Arrow"
    ListBox1.AddItem "Cross"
    ListBox1.AddItem "IBeam"
    ListBox1.AddItem "SizeNESW"
    ListBox1.AddItem "SizeNS"
    ListBox1.AddItem "SizeNWSE"
    ListBox1.AddItem "SizeWE"
    ListBox1.AddItem "UpArrow"
    ListBox1.AddItem "Hourglass"
    ListBox1.AddItem "NoDrop"    
    ListBox1.AddItem "AppStarting"
    ListBox1.AddItem "Help"
    ListBox1.AddItem "SizeAll"
End Sub

Sub ListBox1_Click()
   If IsNull(ListBox1.Value) = False Then
    Select Case ListBox1.Value
        Case "Default" 
            pointer = 0        'Standard pointer.
            Case "Arrow"
            pointer = 1        'Arrow.
        Case "Cross"
            pointer = 2        'Cross-hair pointer.
        Case "IBeam"
            pointer = 3        'I-beam.
        Case "SizeNESW"
            pointer = 6        'Double arrow pointing northeast and southwest.
        Case "SizeNS"
            pointer = 7        'Double arrow pointing north and south.
         Case "SizeNWSE"
            pointer = 8        'Double arrow pointing northwest and southeast.
        Case "SizeWE"
            pointer = 9        'Double arrow pointing west and east.
        Case "UpArrow"
            pointer = 10    'Up arrow.
        Case "Hourglass"
            pointer = 11    'Hourglass.
        Case "NoDrop"
            pointer = 12    '"Not" symbol (circle with a diagonal line) on top of the object being dragged. Indicates an invalid drop target.
        Case "AppStarting"
            pointer = 13    'Arrow with an hourglass.
        Case "Help"
            pointer = 14    'Arrow with a question mark.
        Case "SizeAll"
            pointer = 15    'Size all cursor (arrows pointing north, south, east, and west).
    End Select
    ListBox1.MousePointer = pointer
   End If
End Sub
