[archive] Mouse Shape In Grid Doesn't Change

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 20 January 2007]

I want to change the shape of the mouse while I am dragging whithin a grid.
I tried using "W$MOUSE USING SET-MOUSE-SHAPE, WAIT POINTER" at the start (MSG-BEGIN-DRAG) and also while dragging (MSG-GOTO-CELL-DRAG) but it doesn't change (of it changes and gets reset immediately after).
I also added ALLOW-LEFT-DOWN and ALLOW-MOUSE-MOVE to MOUSE-FLAGS but nothing seems to work.
Is there a way around this because I think this is controlled at low level.
