  • Anyway to hide cursor?

    I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to write something up that would do that.

      WinDVD and PowerDVD both autohide the cursor after a little inactivity.

            The way I do it is I used Visual Studio to whip up a "No Visible Pixel" mouse cursor with just a hot point. It works great for touch screen, but if I ever have to trouble shoot the machine and I use a mouse, I can't see where the hell I'm pointing!

              Can you post the code or executable? Thanks

                I have a hider, but check your mouse control panel. I noticed a cursor set named "TouchKit Hide Cursor" in there that's all blank. I think the Lilliput touchkit installed it. I prefer the large inverted with my hider.

                    I added the auto hider to my Compass because it already had a "start with windows" and is always running. If you don't want the compass part, just set it to COM0: and slide the transparency all the way to the left and it will skip all of it's drawing code.

                    If anyone wants C code to add to their software, just ask. It's as easy to use as ShowCursor().

                        Heh. I don't know. I never got past the fix to make the ports show up in HyperTerminal and then to actually work right with it, and then gave up. I think Destinator is looking for real hardware ports or something. Is there a trial/demo of it that I can get?
