[solved] GUISetCursor

Recommended Posts

Skysnake

Hi, the Help file has a nice example for setting cursors, but what I am looking for is an explanation - what does each type of cursor represent? Is #2 'ready' and #1 'working', #15 'busy'?  I tried msdn too, but that has lots of blah on how to set cursors in C++ --- no definitive cursor list...

You mean this description from MouseGetCursor()?

0 = UNKNOWN (this includes pointing and grabbing hand icons)
    1 = APPSTARTING
    2 = ARROW
    3 = CROSS
    4 = HELP
    5 = IBEAM
    6 = ICON
    7 = NO
    8 = SIZE
    9 = SIZEALL
    10 = SIZENESW
    11 = SIZENS
    12 = SIZENWSE
    13 = SIZEWE
    14 = UPARROW
    15 = WAIT
    16 = HAND

Run the script for GUISetCursor, and press escape to cycle through them. You could have done this yourself in less than a minute.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Thanks.  I did.  I started with the Help file, but did not look at the Mouse functions, as I was interested in the cursor.  Thanks anyhow.  This kind of help is what makes AutoIt great!  Do you perhaps know where this would be referenced for different versions of Windows? Like on an msdn site/KB article? I ask, because I could not find it.

      Hey, all.  
      I've been looking for a way to change cursor colour but not the cursor itself. I've been looking for a couple hours now and can't find anything.  I also don't even know where to start, if anyone has any tips or examples please comment them.
      Thanks

      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?
      Thanx.

      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) ?

      Hello,
      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)
