    Red face Changing mouse cursor to paint brush

    Hi people,

    I am having one innovation idea. i dont know how far it's possible.plz give me your valuable ideas.

    If i open the GIf image it will open in "Windows picture and Fax Viewer".If i want to put any circle in that image means, i have to open via Ms paint.
    But i dont want to open in mspaint, i want to put circle in image viewer itself.For that can i change my mouse cursor into paint brush ?
    Is it a right way or anyother way to acheive my idea ?

    Thanks,
    Riyas.B

    I'm confused. You can't change the cursor of another app like that. Even if you could, how would that make it start drawing circles?

    Sorry, but your wording is very unclear.

    A brush-like cursor does not paint itself as well as a bomb-like cursor doesn't blowup the computer.
    There is a lot of programmer sweat behind.

    Only sensible solution is to write your own viewer that supports drawing circles or to make paint the default application.

    You could start a single view MFC application and use GDI+ to load the image, to draw things on it and to save it back to file.
    But all depends on your knowledge of programming...
