Change the mouse cursor

Hi,

How can I change the default mouse cursor when my cursor moves over a JLabel and change it back to the default when it moves away from the JLabel?

Thanx


There is no patch for ignorance...

Component has a setCursor method which takes a Cursor object. You can create Cursor objects using the constants in Cursor, such as Cursor.HAND_CURSOR.
