Hello. Im making a program for a game. And i need to check if the Cursor changes else i cant find out if im holding the mouse on the correct place.
Basicly i need to check if the Icon of a cursor changes ingame.
It would be nice not having to attach anything into the game.
Please post VB6 questions, in the General forum.

Cursor Distinguishing and Comparing (http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/lofiversion/index.php?t20402.html)
Im not sure why you need to check the cursor though. Is there something else on screen that changes? You could look at the GetPixel API (http://allapi.mentalis.org/apilist/GetPixel.shtml) to check the color of a pixel on the screen instead

Im using that. And then i found out it gets the pixels behind the mouse.
If u can help me fix that i would be happy.

Sorry, what is the problem with it? Do you want pixels that *arnt* behind the mouse? Or do you mean your trying to getpixel on the cursor?

i need the pixels of the mouse since it changes icons when the mouse is over the thing.
like if u hold over a text it gets bolded. And comparing cursors would be WAY to much for VB to handle quick.

GetPixel will ignore the mouse cursor asif it wasnt there (like you have found out)
The idea i was getting at is that you could check the pixels on the screen. Why does the mouse change its icon? For instance if its when you move over a textbox then you know textboxes are white so you can check for a white pixel.

I already told you its in a game. Its WoW. Changes pixel colors ALOT you know. blending shadows etc so i really need to check the cursor :\
