Of all the cursors that we come across on a daily basis, the grab and grabbing cursors are two notable absentees in the list of supported cursors in WPF/Silverlight.
So if you happen to need these two cursors as I did earlier in the day, then here’s a few easy steps to get you going:
2. Include them in your project, under a Resources/Cursors folder, like this:
3. Make sure the Build Action for both is set to ‘Resource’ (which is similar to Embedded Resource, except Resource is intended for WPF/Silverlight and Embedded Resource is intended for older technologies):
4. You won’t be able to put them in as Resources directly, but you can put a reference to them using dummy TextBlock controls:
<UserControl.Resources> <ResourceDictionary> <TextBlock x:Key="CursorGrab" Cursor="Resources/Cursors/grab.cur"/> <TextBlock x:Key="CursorGrabbing" Cursor="Resources/Cursors/grabbing.cur"/> </ResourceDictionary> </UserControl.Resources>
5. Now you can retrieve the references to these cursors in code like this:
_grabCursor = ((TextBlock) Resources["CursorGrab"]).Cursor; _grabbingCursor = ((TextBlock) Resources["CursorGrabbing"]).Cursor;
