RE: Saving Cursors?
Goto Tools | Image Editor --> File | New --> Cursor File

The following is out of the Delphi 5 Help File: Example:

This example shows how to add custom cursors to an application. It assumes that a custom cursor with the name NewCursor has been added to the resources (.RES file) of the application. You can add the cursor using the image editor. (Tools | Image Editor)
The following code makes this cursor available to the application via the constant crMyCursor, and sets it as the global cursor to the application.


crMyCursor = 5;
procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
Screen.Cursors[crMyCursor] := LoadCursor(HInstance, 'NewCursor');
Cursor := crMyCursor;

If you need further help, just write.

Just one other question - Why was site better before? Because you did not have to login?

The login allows everyone to get emailed and to see who is posting the questions. A lot of people have reported that they wanted this option, and so it was done.

If you have comments or suggestions, let me know.

Thanks for the answer but that was not exactly my question..

If I got an image in a TBITMAP or TICON how would I save this image as a cursor? I know the icon and cursor formats are very similiar.

So does anyone know where I can find an example on how to save a cursor? Or an example for saving an icon would be fine also; I guess I could modify the rest myself..

Well whenever I want to login I have to enable cookies - that's a bit annoying.

And people were able to enter their email addresses before as well.. You could've added a function or something so answers would've been emailed to them automatically without registering.
