How to change the default cursor

Recommended Posts

Hello

I'm trying to set a new cursor instead of the default cursors of the system

ex: make the default arrow cursor is busy until a program starts

I've searched the forum and got this code

Global Const $OCR_APPSTARTING = 32650
Global Const $OCR_NORMAL = 32512
Global Const $OCR_CROSS = 32515
Global Const $OCR_HAND = 32649
Global Const $OCR_IBEAM = 32513
Global Const $OCR_NO = 32648
Global Const $OCR_SIZEALL = 32646
Global Const $OCR_SIZENESW = 32643
Global Const $OCR_SIZENS = 32645
Global Const $OCR_SIZENWSE = 32642
Global Const $OCR_SIZEWE = 32644
Global Const $OCR_UP = 32516
Global Const $OCR_WAIT = 32514


_SetCursor(@WindowsDir&"\cursors\aero_working.ani", $OCR_NORMAL)


Func _SetCursor($s_file, $i_cursor)
Local $newhcurs
$newhcurs = DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "LoadCursorFromFile", "str", $s_file)
DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SetSystemCursor", "int", $newhcurs[0], "int", $i_cursor)
DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "DestroyCursor", "int", $newhcurs[0])
EndFunc

 

this code is good in changing the cursor from an external file

but can I change the cursor without using external files ( as in win XP there're no files for default cursors)

ex: change default system Normal arrow to AppStarting arrow directly

 

Thank you and Any help is very appreciated,

      Hi Guys,
      I've noticed that the SoundGetWaveVolume UDF in an older topic isn't working on Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. It's probably a Windows XP UDF. The UDF below does work. It successfully returns the volume set by SoundSetWaveVolume. It might need checking by the AutoIt community for some synthax finetuning.

      Not going to dump the code down because it's essentially a keylogger.

      Hi guys!
      A pretty simple UDF to convert HTML to PDF using wkHTMLtoPDF.
      It uses the C API of the tool (DLL), so no external process, no ActiveX or COM sh*t.
      See the example, and the documentation of wkHTMLtoPDF.
      Cheers

      This is relevant
      From here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3454315/is-it-possible-to-pin-a-dll-in-memory-to-prevent-unloading
      I use several UDFs on the Forum to do various things.  Those UDFs work very well.
      Effectively the UDFs are DLL wrappers, that make it possible to access DLL functions easily without the long hard slog of DLLCall() every time.
      However, I have now run into the issue that multiple UDF DLLCalls are slow. Not mind numbingly slow, but slow enough to become noticeable with a large of repeated function calls.
      So I was wondering, is it possible to "load a DLL into memory" and leave it there for the duration of my script's lifetime, avoid repeated DLL on-disk reads with a persistent in memory DLL?
      From Microsoft
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/dlls/about-dynamic-link-libraries
      Looks like what I want to do is: load-time dynamic linking,
      So next question, (a) how do I do this with AutoIt (b) How would this impact on standard AutoIt type DLL calls?
       
      The point is speed.  Is there a different approach?
      Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
