    Anyway to hide cursor?

    Is there anyway to hide the cursor until the mouse is moved?I use the touch screen most the time but if I play dvd s the cursor has to hide so the menu will go away.

    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!

    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().
