    Our main form has a custom cursor that I set with this.Cursor = cusotmCursor;
    When I show a RadMessageBox our custom cursor is changed to the default WinForms arrow the cursor.
    When I click on the RadMessageBox button and the RadMEssageBox closes, the cursor returns to our custom cursor.

    This is very important to us for the evaluatio of the Teletik controls:
    How to keep our custom cursor when showing the RadMessageBox?
    The cursor must not change.

    This is my code - I subclassed the RadMessageBox in my custom class which the application uses.
    Is this the recommended way to wrap the RadMessageBox?

    I use .Net 3.5 SP1 with VS2008.

    Best Regards,

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using Telerik.WinControls;
    using System.Windows.Forms;

    namespace UI.Forms.UserControls
        public static class YMessageBox
            public static DialogResult Show(IWin32Window parent, string text, string caption,
                MessageBoxButtons buttons, RadMessageIcon icon, MessageBoxDefaultButton defaultButton)

                DialogResult dr = RadMessageBox.Show(parent, text, caption, buttons, icon, defaultButton, RightToLeft.Yes);
                return dr;

    Hello Ofer,

    Thank you for writing.

    I confirm that RadMessageBox changes the cursor to the default one -- it does not support changing the cursor and unfortunately this behavior cannot be changed in the current version. I have logged it as Feature Request and it will be implemented in some of the next releases.

    I have updated your Telerik points for bringing our attention to this. Do not hesitate to contact me again if you have other questions.

    Sincerely yours,
