View list of data type meanings
This function lets you change the shape of the cursor during a hotspot drag operation.
The argument a number which indicates what shape the mouse pointer is to take, as follows:
-1: no cursor
3: + symbol
4: wait (hour-glass)
5: up arrow
6: arrow nw-se
7: arrow ne-sw
8: arrow e-w
9: arrow n-s
10: arrow - all ways
11: (X) cannot do action
12: help (? symbol)
This operation is only effective when the mouse is "captured" - basically after a mouse-down but before the corresponding mouse-up. Otherwise the cursor is likely to be promptly restored by MUSHclient's cursor management code, for example to an I-beam cursor if it moves over text, or to the designated cursor if it moves over miniwindow hotspots.
Cursor shape -1 (no cursor) added in version 4.45.
Note: Available in version 4.40 onwards.
