Description

Description:
Changes the default cursor that appears when interacting with a map control to a custom one. Use an empty string to restore the default cursor.
Before Arma 3, if the specified cursor does not exist the default is used and no error is produced.
In Arma 3, this would result in the following error: "No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgWrapperUI/Cursors'".

The cursor is the name of a config entry from CfgWrapperUI / Cursors. This command has the following specifics:

  • When used on the Main Map (findDisplay 12 displayCtrl 51), it is possible to override multiple default cursors. For example, while leaving default "Arrow" intact, it is possible to just override "Scroll" with e.g "Wait" (See Example 3)
  • When used on a custom map, for example user made Mini Map, there is only one single cursor "" for everything, therefore only this cursor can be overridden (see Example 4 on how to override it)

Some possible class names (See ctrlMapCursor/cursors for the whole list):

  • Arrow
  • Track
  • Move
  • Scroll
  • Rotate
  • Track3D
  • Move3D
  • Rotate3D
  • Raise3D
  • Wait
  • HC_move
  • HC_overFriendly
  • HC_overEnemy
  • HC_overMission
  • HC_unsel
Groups:
GUI Control - Map

Syntax

Syntax:
control ctrlMapCursor [defaultCursor, newCursor]
Parameters:
control: Control - Map control
defaultCursor: String - cursor class name, case-sensitive
newCursor: String - cursor class name, case-sensitive
Return Value:
Nothing

Examples

Example 1:
_map ctrlMapCursor ["Track", "Arrow"];
Example 2:
uiNamespace setVariable ["_map", findDisplay 12 displayCtrl 51]; (uiNamespace getVariable "_map") ctrlMapCursor ["Track", "HC_overFriendly"];
Example 3:
findDisplay 12 displayCtrl 51 ctrlMapCursor ["Scroll", "Wait"];
Example 4:
Cycle through all available cursors over custom map: [] spawn { disableSerialization; _map = findDisplay 46 createDisplay "RscCredits" ctrlCreate ["RscMapControl", -1]; _map ctrlSetPosition [0,0,1,1]; _map ctrlCommit 0; { _map ctrlMapCursor ["", configName _x]; //<-- the actual usage hint format ["Current cursor: %1", configName _x]; sleep 1; } forEach ("true" configClasses (configFile >> "CfgWrapperUI" >> "Cursors")); };

When using this command, the cursor will change for the whole display, resulting in visual glitches. Adding the onMouseMoving event handler can help solve this problem: _control ctrlAddEventHandler ["MouseMoving", { params [ ["_mapCtrl",controlNull, [controlNull]], ["_xPos",-1,[0]], ["_yPos",-1,[0]], ["_mouseIn", false, [true]] ]; if (_mouseIn) then { // Mouse is in control area _mapCtrl ctrlMapCursor ["", "Track"]; } else { // Mouse is out of control area, goes back to arrow _mapCtrl ctrlMapCursor ["", "Arrow"]; }; }];
