I am porting an medium scale application from Common Windows (the
window system of KEE) to plain Dynamic Windows. Unfortunately,
there is a feature in CW which I have used extensively but has
no counterpart in DW: in CW you can freely exchange the mouse
cursor by an arbitrary bitmap, not only by another mouse character
like in DW. My application relies on this feature as you can
pick a road map symbol with the mouse, then the mouse changes to
this symbol and you can move the symbol to a rasterized window
to pin it at the place you want.
DW lets you set the blinker type as well as the blinker character.
:SET-MOUSE-BLINKER-TYPE and the :MOUSE-BLINKER-TYPE init option can be
anything to be passed to TV:MOUSE-SET-BLINKER-DEFINITION. If you need a
keyword and args, pass a CONS.
This, together with the Genera blinker definition from another
respondent, should be all you need to get going.
