I'm hoping this is feasible... I made a program that resides in the system tray. One of the tray items runs a function that waits for the user to click on a window to get the window title.

I would like for the mouse cursor to change to the cross while waiting for user input. I have tried using GUISetCursor(3), but from my understanding this only changes the cursor for an AutoIt GUI window.

How could I go about changing the mouse cursor for the user's environment, not just for the AutoIt window?

@JLogan3o13 I was a little bit confused on the $hCursor parameter, but I have gotten it to work thanks to the example in the help file:

 

Func FuncName()
       ;backs up the user's arrow cursor
   Local $hPrev = _WinAPI_CopyCursor(_WinAPI_LoadCursor(0, 32512))

       ;backs up the user's ibeam cursor
   Local $iPrev = _WinAPI_CopyCursor(_WinAPI_LoadCursor(0, 32513)) 

       ;changes the user's arrow cursor
   _WinAPI_SetSystemCursor(_WinAPI_LoadCursorFromFile(@ScriptDir & "\cross.cur"),32512) 
       ;changes the user's ibeam cursor
   _WinAPI_SetSystemCursor(_WinAPI_LoadCursorFromFile(@ScriptDir & "\cross.cur"),32513) 

   ; Do the code you want to execute

       ;restores the user's default cursor
   _WinAPI_SetSystemCursor($hPrev,32512) 
       ;restores the user's ibeam cursor
   _WinAPI_SetSystemCursor($iPrev,32513) 
EndFunc

Thanks for your insight!

      I'm using the following:
      Autoit 3.3.14.5
      newly installed Beta 3.3.15.5
      SQlite version 3380000 aka 3.38.0
      I put sqlite3.dll and sqlite3_x64.dll in C:\Windows\System32 since many scripts depend on them.


      I extended the output of _SQLite_Startup()
      with:
      ConsoleWrite("@AutoItX64 " & @AutoItX64 & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("$sDll_Filename " & $sDll_Filename & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("_SQLite_LibVersion=" & _SQLite_LibVersion() & @CRLF)

      Also using the script from https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/libfunctions/_SQLite_Startup.htm for testing.

       
      >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0


      Why doesn't it work in 32bit, despite me having the 32bit sqlite.dll? Autoit urges running scripts in 32bit mode and Scite starts scripts just in 32bit mode without the flag?
      With #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=Y it just works, both normal Autoit and beta!

      Hello Team, Greetings!
      Is there any way to run any 3rd party application silently in background without the GUI getting in the front ?
      I was implementing angry-ip scanner with autoit & wanted the angry-ip application to run in background quietly as I am copying its output to other file on completion. is there any way to achieve my query?
      Below is code I tried: 
      $range = "192.168.0.1 192.168.0.255" ShellExecuteWait("C:\Windows\DDM\ipscan.exe","-f:range "&$iprange&" -q -o C:\temp\ScanResults.csv","","open",@SW_HIDE) Thanks!

      This topic give you access to an AutoIt functions library I maintain which is called PAL, Peter's AutoIt Library. The latest version 1.26 contains 214 functions divided into these topics:
      window, desktop and monitor GUI, mouse and color GUI controls including graphical buttons (jpg, png) logics and mathematics include constants string, xml string and file string dialogues and progress bars data lists: lists, stacks, shift registers and key maps (a.ka. dictionaries) miscellaneous: logging/debugging, process and system info Change log and files section  on the PAL website (SourceForge).
      A lot of these functions were created in the development of Peace, Peter's Equalizer APO Configuration Extension, which is a user interface for the system-wide audio driver called Equalizer APO.
