  • Question

  • Hi,

    Would anyone please give me some tips on how to hide the mouse cursor if I want to run my WinCE app and show the mouse cursor if I want to run explorer.exe after power-on?

  • There are different things going on.  Many display drivers always draw the cursor, so you'd have to create some method to control that in the display driver.  Within your own application, you can call ShowCursor() to show/hide the cursor.  Again, if the display driver handles this properly, it may be hidden.  A general solution will depend substantially on what exactly your hardware is...
