It's usually easiest to use attachMovie() to attach one from the library, for one it's easier to swap between cursors,
two, it's easier to make sure it's depth is higher than everything else.
Code: [ Select ]
attachMovie("customCursorLinkageId", "customCursor", 9999);
customCursor.onMouseMove = function(){
   this._x = _root._xmouse;
   this._y = _root._ymouse;
  1. attachMovie("customCursorLinkageId", "customCursor", 9999);
  2. Mouse.hide();
  3. customCursor.onMouseMove = function(){
  4.    this._x = _root._xmouse;
  5.    this._y = _root._ymouse;
  6. }

If you don't know where "customCursorLinkageId" comes from, do a quick search for "attachMovie(" or "linkage" limiting results to come only from the Flash/Actionscripting forum.
