This is how you would define a cursor in direct graphics.
XROI is an object graphics program. To change an object
graphics cursor, you use the REGISTER_CURSOR procedure
to create the cursor and its name, then use the SetCurrentCursor
method on the IDLgrWindow object (called oWindow in XROI) to
select the cursor.

You will have to modify the XROI code to do this. In
the terms you use:

Register_Cursor, 'ThinCross', yy, Mask=zz
oWindow -> SetCurrentCursor, 'ThinCross'

Be sure to set the cursor back when you exit the program:

oWindow -> SetCurrentCursor, 'Original'
