Cursor with inverted colors?

I'm trying to make my cursor have inverted colors as the background colorchanges.

Hello, you may know me as Swaffy.

I've hit a little bump in the road with my little cursor.

I have seen quite a few cursors that invert its colors as it moves along different surfaces. So the cursor would be black on a white surface, white on a black surface, and [I think] green on a red surface.

Can I, if possible, make my cursor have this effect? It is all black with a clear inside, so that might lift a little weight off of the issue.

Create a new cursor with other than 32bit color depth. 1bit is probably best. Select fully transparent white color - the upper right corner in the lower color area (or use color code 00FFFFFF). Draw with pencil...

Thank you, sir. I'm new to this, so I'm glad to have some help.

I think this image will complement what Vlasta said, because for some, it might be difficult to understand that explanation without a picture, like it was for me.

You can use my Artifact set (not the demo) to see how the inverted pixels are shown in RW. Window's only supports this in 24 bit or less color (you give up partial transparency effects to do this).

Inverted pixels can work in 1-bit, or 4-bit if you want to include color in the cursor.
