Hour 13. Rollovers > Creating Custom Cursors

Creating Custom Cursors

In Hour 7, “Moving and Changing Movie Clips,” you learned how to set a movie clip's location to the location of the mouse with the _xmouse and _ymouse properties. While the movie clip remains at the location of the cursor, it is not useful as a cursor because the real cursor stays visible. We can change this, however, by getting rid of the cursor altogether with the Mouse.hide() function.

By first using Mouse.hide() and then making a movie clip follow the cursor location, you can effectively create a custom cursor.
