#826 – Lower-Level Elements Can Have Different Cursor

Cursor set on a top-level FrameworkElement will also be used on all elements within the parent element’s logical tree.  All lower-level elements will show the same cursor when the user hovers over the element.

You can, however, set a Cursor on a top-level element and then set a different value for Cursor on the lower-level element.  The top-level Cursor will be used for all descendants of the top-level element except for the one that explicitly sets a different cursor.

    <StackPanel Cursor="Hand">
        <Label Content="Ad eundum quo nemo ante iit"
               Margin="5"
               Background="LightCoral"/>
        <Label Content="Noli habere bovis, vir"
               Margin="5"
               Background="DarkSeaGreen"/>
        <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal"
                    HorizontalAlignment="Center">
            <Button Content="Veni, Vidi"
                    Padding="10,5" Margin="10"/>
            <Button Content="Dormivi"
                    Cursor="Wait"
                    Padding="10,5" Margin="10"/>
        </StackPanel>
    </StackPanel>
