New Cursors for fltk-1.3

Changes have been done in:


For WIN32 I have created '.cur' files and placed them
in 'C:\cursor\'.

The '.cur' files can be found in 'win32_cursor.tar.bz2'.
This archive can be found in a separate mail.

Consolidating STR 2923 and STR 2924. The announced cursor files have been posted to STR 2924 which is obsolete.

Link to cursor files:

I'm closing STR 2924 now and I'm evaluating the patch and the provided cursors.

Changed scope: Applies to all machines and OS's.

Although the original cursor files have been in Windows '.cur' format I found a way to make the patch platform independent:

- convert cursor images from '.cur' to '.xpm' format
- load cursors in platform independent file 'src/fl_cursor.cxx'

For reference I made a screenshot of all cursors in one image, see uploaded file 'all_cursors.png'.


This is only a proof of concept and does not mean that these cursors will be integrated in FLTK at any time in the future. In my local branch everything appears to work so far, with two exceptions:

1) some cursors don't work well on dark backgrounds, this must be fixed

2) I could not extract the "hotspot" from the '.cur' files (I don't know how), i.e. I need to add the hotspot info (relative x/y) manually. It would be helpful if you could provide the hotspot positions.

@szukw000: Before I can work further on this STR, please ensure that:

- these cursor images are copyright free (or made by you)
- we may use them in FLTK under the FLTK copyright
- we may modify the cursor images as needed.

Without these statements (here in the STR form) we can't apply your patch.

Thanks for your work!

This STR has not been updated by the submitter for two or more weeks and has been closed as required by the FLTK Configuration Management Plan. If the issue still requires resolution, please open a GitHub Issue and refer to this STR.

We can't apply these cursors for reasons given above.
