B4J Question How To Change Mouse Cursor When Hover Over Label on Non-Main Window (B4XPages)

All of the threads I found about changing the mouse cursor dealt with the Main page. I have a label on a non-Main window. How do I get the mouse cursor to change only when hovering over that label?

I'm using B4XPages.

In the other form module ...
B4X:
Private frmSecondForm As Form  'Process Global

Private Sub Label1_MouseEntered (EventData As MouseEvent)
  frmSecondForm.RootPane.MouseCursor = fx.Cursors.OPEN_HAND
End Sub

Private Sub Label1_MouseExited (EventData As MouseEvent)
  frmSecondForm.RootPane.MouseCursor = fx.Cursors.DEFAULT
End Sub

Thank you, @mangojack !

I'm sorry! Sadly, I forgot to mention, I am using B4XPages, so I'm not sure how to set frmSecondForm from your example.

Do you know how to do this using B4XPages?

Playing around with B4XPages example ... try this. Unsure if its the best approach. ( Process Global vs Dimmed locally )

B4X:
Private frm2 as Form  'Process Global

'in B4XPage_Created()
frm2 =  B4XPages.GetNativeParent(Me) 'will return the page Form.

Private Sub Label1_MouseEntered (EventData As MouseEvent)
  frm2.RootPane.MouseCursor = fx.Cursors.OPEN_HAND
End Sub

Private Sub Label1_MouseExited (EventData As MouseEvent)
  frm2.RootPane.MouseCursor = fx.Cursors.DEFAULT
End Sub
