drag-cursor

Arguments: dialog-item

Returns the mouse cursor image to be used while doing a drag from dialog-item while the mouse cursor is not over a dialog-item. (This cursor is also shown before the mouse cursor first moves off of the widget from which dragging is being done.)

An application typically would not need to call this generic function, but may define methods on it to customize the mouse cursors that are used by drag-and-drop. The returned value should be either an instance of the cursor class or a mouse cursor handle.

The default method returns the mouse cursor handle which is the value of the variable no-drop-cursor. This cursor shows a red circle with a diagonal line through it, indicating that it is generally not possible to drop when not over a dialog-item.

drop-cursor and no-drop-cursor return mouse cursors suitable for use during a drag.
