As is explained throughout the site, the operation of making the mouse animate on mouse click (i assume every mouse click) is impossible with RW-Cursor editor. You would require a shareware(not free) copy of Cursor XP which will monitor your mouse movement and will react upon mouse-click, hover over or working periods.

If you look around you might be able to find an illegal copy but were not warez so i cant divulge information leading to the illegal files. But yeah if you really want to spend your money on software you will probably not use again, then that's fine.

Im pinning this topic because everyone NEEDS to know about this. this has been asked quite a lot.

Could this function be integrated into the javascript of the cursor. I understand you can add filters to a cursor frame though Java, but nothing to the cursor entirely. Maybe if you add the ability to edit javascript to the whole cursor, we could add effects on mouse click. Possibly display a different cursor during the duration of the click.
(e.g. Open hand cursor. Click and hold; cursor turns into a closed hand.)
Maybe this process is more complex than I assume it is, but if there is a possibility, please try to make this into a new version of RW cursor editor.

The editor is not the limiting factor here. Windows is. The standard .cur and .ani file formats do not allow any kind of interactivity.

It's too bad, you can do so much stuff with javascript cursors on webpages, but nearly nothing with the computer's cursor. Hmph, oh well.

Right, rather than in the editor, you can just use JavaScript in the webpage so when you click, it changes the cursor (for this you need two different cursor files).

Here is how: Make two HTML classes, and with CSS, assign a cursor to each of them. Then make sure that every element (along with the body) in your HTML document has a class of the cursor you want to start out on, and an onmousedown that changes the class, and an onmouseup that changes the class back.

You know, if you want the paid version of Cursor XP or Cursor FX, you could just download it using torrent downloaders...

This was already explained in the OP.

found something... in microsoft word with the text select (all ive tested) when you click it resets the animation, so if you were to change the last frame of animation to like 2000 seconds or something you would only get that animation on click. i dont understand this but i put a cursor for you guys to test it
