Code Examples

#include "SDL.h"

int
main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
    SDL_Window *window = NULL;
    SDL_Renderer *renderer = NULL;
    SDL_Surface *surface = NULL;
    SDL_Cursor *cursor = NULL;
    SDL_bool error = SDL_TRUE;

    if (SDL_Init(SDL_INIT_VIDEO) < 0) {
        goto exit;
    }
    if (SDL_CreateWindowAndRenderer(640, 480, 0, &window, &renderer) < 0) {
        goto exit;
    }
    surface = SDL_LoadBMP((1 < argc) ? argv[1] : "cursor.bmp");

    }
    cursor = SDL_CreateColorCursor(surface, 0, 0);
    if (!cursor) {
        goto exit;
    }

    SDL_SetCursor(cursor);
    SDL_SetRenderDrawColor(renderer, 255, 0, 0, 255);

            }
        }
        SDL_RenderClear(renderer);
        SDL_RenderPresent(renderer);

    }
    if (surface) {
        SDL_FreeSurface(surface);
    }
    if (renderer) {
