The zip file contains three files :

SETFIGPTR.M is based on SETPTR.M from T. Kauss (TMW). It basically sets the figure pointer property as the following command does :

set(fig_handle,'pointer',...)

But it adds more pointer than those contained in the default parameter :

'hand' - open hand for panning indication
'hand1' - open hand with a 1 on the back
'hand2' - open hand with a 2 on the back
'closedhand' - closed hand
'glass' - magnifying glass
'lrdrag' - left/right drag cursor
'ldrag' - left drag cursor
'rdrag' - right drag cursor
'uddrag' - up/down drag cursor
'udrag' - up drag cursor
'ddrag' - down drag cursor
'add' - arrow with + sign
'addzero' - arrow with 'o'
'addpole' - arrow with 'x'
'eraser' - eraser
'help' - arrow with question mark ?
'zoomin' - magnifying glass with +
'zoomout' - magnifying glass with -
'matlabdoc' - exemple of custom made pointer from the Matlab doc.
'none' - no pointer

GETFIGPTR is based on GETPTR.M from T. Kauss (TMW). It basically gets the figure pointer property.

SWITCHFIGPTR lets the user to modify the pointer and set it back later.

See this example :

<stuff>
switchfigptr('watch',gcf)
<do other stuff>
swtichfigptr

The first call will store the current pointer and replace it by the 'watch' one. The second call will restore the pointer.

See help sections for more informations.
