Specifies the location of the hot spot when an image is being used as a cursor.Syntax:

set the hotSpot of <image> to <point>

Examples:

set the hotSpot of image "Arrow" to "20,0"

Use the hotSpot property to specify the position of the hot spot of an image(keyword) you want to use as a cursor.

A mouse cursor, regardless of its shape, always has a single active point or hot spot. For example, the arrow cursor's hot spot is at its tip, and to select an object, you must click it with the arrow tip.

The first item of the hotSpot property is the horizontal distance in pixels from the left edge of the image(keyword) to the hot spot point, and is equal to the image's xHot property. The second item of the hotSpot property is the vertical distance in pixels from the top of the image(keyword) to the hot spot point, and is equal to the image's yHot property.
