Hide Mouse Cursor in Visual Foxpro
Today I needed to hide the mouse cursor for a presentation program. Objects in VFP have a MousePointer property with which you can select the appearance of the cursor. 0 for default Windows behaviour, 1 to 17 for specific shapes like arrow (1) or hourglass (11) and 99 for Custom design. There is no “Hidden” appearance, No “MouseVisible” property. Shame.
What to do?
- Download the blank cursor.
- Next you select the forementioned 99 (custom) MousePointer value and
- last place the filename (Null.cur) in the MouseIcon field.
