Change to a custom cursor

Recommended Posts


Is there a way to change to a custom cursor? I found some examples that work with GUI but can not find anything that changes the cursor on my desktop without a gui.

      Tell me, please, how to set / change the cursor over RichEdit (created with _GUICtrlRichEdit_Create)?

      Two questions...
      When presenting a form containing a richedit control, is there any way to make the displayed text, within said richedit control, non-selectable?
      In addition, is there any way to hide the vertical line cursor, within said richedit control?

      When I set the busy cursor on the main gui, it returns to a normal cursor when hovering over any of the controls on the gui window.  This behavior happens regardless of whether I set the 'override' parameter to 1 or to 0.
      Here is my test code:
      #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseUpx=n #AutoIt3Wrapper_Au3Check_Parameters=-d -w 1 -w 2 -w 3 -w 4 -w 5 -w 6 #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=N Opt("GUICloseOnESC", 1) ; ESC closes GUI? (0 = no, 1 = yes) Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) ; Change to OnEvent mode Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) OnAutoItExitRegister("Event_GUIClose") #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Global $hMainWin, $statusID, $cnt = 0 _Main() Func _Main() Local $msg $hMainWin = GUICreate("cursor test", 250, 200, -1, -1) GUICtrlCreateListView("ABCdef", 10, 10, 100, 100) GUICtrlCreateButton("override = 1", 130, 10, 100, 25) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "handle_SetCur_1_btn") GUICtrlCreateButton("override = 0", 130, 50, 100, 25) GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "handle_SetCur_0_btn") $statusID = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 10, 120, 200, 20) GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0xFFFF00) GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, 'Event_GUIClose') GUISetState() ; Make everything visible While (1) $msg = GUIGetMsg() Select Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSelect Sleep(125) WEnd EndFunc ;==>_Main Func Event_GUIClose() Exit EndFunc ;==>Event_GUIClose Func handle_SetCur_1_btn() If (Mod($cnt, 2)) Then setIT(15, 1) Else setIT(2, 1) EndIf $cnt += 1 EndFunc ;==>handle_SetCur_1_btn Func handle_SetCur_0_btn() If (Mod($cnt, 2)) Then setIT(15, 0) Else setIT(2, 0) EndIf $cnt += 1 EndFunc ;==>handle_SetCur_0_btn Func setIT($cursorID, $override) Local $str GUISetCursor($cursorID, $override, $hMainWin) $str = "Set " & (($cursorID = 2) ? " normal" : " busy") & " cursor." $str &= " (override = " & $override & ")" ConsoleWrite("+++: " & $str & @CRLF) GUICtrlSetData($statusID, $str) EndFunc ;==>setIT

      I want that when mouse cursor is in GUI, cursor would hide, and when cursor is outside GUI it would appear again.

      (Sorry for my bad English)

      Hey Community,
      I was changing around my color scheme manually for syntax highlighting. I really enjoy using a dark background color. However, this seems to be problematic because my blinking cursor is also very dark. Is there a setting in the ScITE config where I can manipulate the blinking cursor to be a different color like "white" so it is easy to spot when coding. The closest thing I found was "Caret Line Color", but this just changes the line highlight.  Your help is greatly appreciated!!
