  • CursorHider. Utility to autohide the mouse cursor (great for TS LCDs)

    OK, I searched before posting this, and only found ONE reference to this utility, and it was burried in a post.

    This utility (CursorHider) will hide your cursor after a predefined amount of inactivity. If you set it to 1 sec, then it will hide it after 1 sec of inactivity.

    In your typical TouchScreen usage, you only really CLICK on the screen, so here is how it works visually:

    Mouse is hidden after startup...
    -You click on a button in your Nav software, or Frontend or whatever, and it will show the cursor in the position where you clicked.
    -1 second later, it will hider the cursor.

    If you combine this with the 'hand pointer' cursor, it actually has a very nice effect. this one ->

    Now for the UGLY part! It costs $15, and it takes up over 4 Mb of RAM (yikes!!!)

    Anyone coders up there up to the task to create somethintg slimmer, and of course free?

      Yes thanatos, I'm aware of the clear cursor image. I have been using that until now. The problem is, I do like to see where my clicks are 'landing' when I touch my screen. With this utility, you can have it show you when/where you click, but it disappears afterwards.

        Edit:

        To be honest I haven't use it I just saw you post and give you some input about the subject.

          My compass has one built in but it's 5 seconds. It also take 4MB, and hides after hibernation.
