I have seen similar questions asked already, but haven't had any success actually getting it to work.
The answers I have seen seem to involve some form of the following:
Is this the proper way to select the mouse cursor as the current figure, or should i be creating a seperate figure handle for the cursor? When I use this method, there is no indication that the cursor has changed appearance at all. Also, I'm not sure that when using the gcf function that it the current figure is even the mouse cursor.
