First of all, I'm using Visual Studio 2005 C++ and .net Framework.
I have two question for slightly similar cases:
1. I'm developing a "kind of ultra simplified web browser" for people with disabilities, I have replaced the cursor for a custom one (actually I just hided the real one and showing a fake one). Every time I want to click on a hyperlink I need to precisely position the cursor over the linked object, let's say a precise point. When the hyperlink is a picture or something relatively big there is no problem, but when the linked object is text, is a nightmare for people with mobility disabilities to precisely position the cursor over the text. I was wondering ... "How can I create something like a -magnetic - hyperlink that could attract the cursor when a certain proximity is detected?
" For example if the cursor is positioned within 10 pixels of distance from the "area" with the hyperlink, the cursor will move automatically to that new position. Sample here
2.- The second case is similar, but in this case I have a "target cursor" instead of an arrow cursor. In addition, the "hand" was replaced with an "active target" for those cases in which there is a hyperlink detected by the cursor. How can make the target to become active target whenever the hyperlink is detected within its "target area?
" even 1 pixel inside the area would trigger that activation and of course if clicked would proceed accordingly. Sample here
I hope you understand what I'm trying to explain.
Thanks in advance.
