In this blog lets discuss how we can change the mouse pointer over a table in a ComponentOne RichTextBox document. For example if we have a document in ComponentOne RichTextBox which contains a paragraph and a table and we want that the table should behave differently from the whole paragraph. If we hover the mouse over paragraph and in between there is a table in it the mouse cursor remains the same. Here we would want that the mouse pointer should remain same for the paragraph but different for the table. This is to discriminate between a Table and a paragraph. Have a look at the image below.
