This call sets the cursor type.


VioSetCurType (CursorData, VioHandle)


;CursorData (PVIOCURSORINFO) - input : Address of the cursor characteristics structure: :startline (USHORT) : Horizontal scan line in the character cell that marks the top line of the cursor. If the character cell has n scan lines, 0 is the top scan line of the character cell and (n - 1) is the bottom scan line. :endline (USHORT) : Horizontal scan line in the character cell that marks the bottom line of the cursor. Scan lines within a character cell are numbered as defined in startline. The maximum value allowed is 31. :cursorwidth (USHORT) : Width of the cursor. In text modes, cursorwidth is the number of columns. The maximum number supported by the OS/2 base video subsystem is 1. In graphics modes, cursorwidth is the number of pels. ::A value of 0 specifies the default width. In text modes, this is 1 column. In graphics modes, this is the number of pels equivalent to the width of one character. :cursorattrib (USHORT) : A value of -1 denotes a hidden cursor, all other values denote a normal cursor. ;VioHandle (HVIO) - input : This must be zero unless the caller is a Presentation Manager application, in which case it must be the value returned by VioGetPs.
