    Default changing the splitpane's cursor

    is there a way to change the splitPane's cursor when you are hovering into its divider?.. I want to change its cursor when my mouse cursor hovers into its divider.

    I need to do this because i dont intend to make my splitpane disable because I use to encounter some cursor problems,

    so what I did is I set the two Component's minimum sizes into which the split pane cannot be moved, but the split panes cursor is still there,
    I simply want to make a divider for two components(which are panels),

    I tried to implement this split.setCursor(Cursor.getDefaultCursor()), but nothing changes...

    Not fully sure what you wish to achieve. Do you just want a JSplitPane that is not resizeable - more for the look rather than behavior? Try calling setEnabled(false), which will prevent resizing and should leave the cursor unchanged.

    If you want a pane that's divided you don't need to use a split pane. Simply add two or more panes to the pane your split pane would be, then set the border for these panes.
