Hide mouse icon when moving out of area

3 posts in this topic

I'm helping a neighbour whom is handicaped, from the neck down, to start using a computer.

We have a mouse devidce tracking movements of the head. And some special helper software (It resebles autoit).

Now this is our problem.

When reading a pdf file or the a web page the mouse icon is rather anoying as it follows the head movements. So I think a solution is to disable the mousicon when it leaws the area occupied by the helper software. Does anyone know how to achive this in autoit or C ?

If anyoune of you have experience in configuring windows for people like my neighbour and can point me to sites with solutions, tips and tools (preferably freeware..:)) it would be greate.

Regards

And a realy good idea it is. Thanks Valuater.. :)

Played with it last night. Turns out that the mouse escapes the area after a SendKeys like operation from the "specialized" program. But that is not to hard to fix with a loop and some rudementary checks.
