Remarks

The IMouseCursor interface has one method, SetCursor, for setting the system's cursor to the cursor id or picture object specified by the cursorID parameter.

The instance is released when the calling procedure ends, when the variable that references the mouse cursor is set to nothing, or when something, such as the display of a message box, overrides Windows messaging.
