    Greetings,

    Just joined. My first post. Learning programming.

    How do I get the state of the cursor?

    (This is for use in a macro program that I want a cursor change to trigger events.)

    Thanks

    p.s. It would be great of there were a forum/database/wiki where people can ask and answer "how to" question and accumulate a large library of answers.

    Well a Mac Guide can be created for this, its a good idea.

    That's a very general question. Which database, API, and language are you using?

    I'm thinking of something organized into a database searchable and browsable by various criteria. Every page would be an answer to a "How do I..." question and have a snippet of code.

    Code:
    NSCursor *currentCursor = [NSCursor currentCursor];
    Well that's how you get the current cursor itself, I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "the state of", other than that.
