Sorry if this is a time waster, but being a JSF neophyte has me grasping for air.
I'm reviewing an interface written by someone from our group. In his implementation of picklist controls (components?) the left hand side has the behavior of the mouse pointer (cursor) becoming a text selection icon when hovering over an item in the list. On my asking him about this he claims there's no way to change it. I'm finding this a bit hard to believe. Using v 3.3 of richfaces. Could this be a bug or might he not understand how to properly initialize the control?

thanks in advance for help on this. If you could provide a link to related information it would be great.

So I believe I've narrowed down a partial solution by using a css style and setting it via the pickList listStyle tag. I have a style like this:

and I assign like this:

which almost works. Only problem is, it turns the cursor to the pointer anywhere in the selection list where what I really want is it to change when it's over any of the items in the list. How do I do this? Can anyone help?
I agree. Here's the link:
