Many times you will want any given component in Adobe Flex to use the hand cursor when you are hovering it, to indicate that you can click it. But on some components you will have to go through a few more steps than is intuitive.
Take for example the
Label component. You may assign it as follows:
myLabel.useHandCursor = true; myLabel.buttonMode = true;
And hope that your are done.
You will need to set the property mouseChildren to false for it to work. Like such:
myLabel.useHandCursor = true; myLabel.buttonMode = true; myLabel.mouseChildren = false;
And now you are done, incidentally this will work for most Flex components. :)
