Showing (not hiding) the mouse on a remote connection

Recommended Posts

Contrary to some sneaky-types around here who seem to want to do things on others' computers without being seen.... this is the opposite.

I'm working out the final details of a remote assistance package and I would like for them to see where I'm clicking.

I'm half wondering if it's a problem with the way I've tried making my GIF. I -think- I've done it right (made the background red and assigned red as the transparent colour) but it still shows up as non-transparent with a white background.

CODE
While ProcessExists("hamachi.exe")

Sleep(100)

$pos = MouseGetPos()

;SplashImageOn ( "", @TempDir & "\transmouse.gif", 21 , 30 , $pos[0]-2, $pos[1]-2 , 19) ;<---Preferred

ToolTip ( " " , $pos[0], $pos[1] , "" , 0 , 3) ; <--non-preferred but basically works.

WEnd

Any ideas?

I think the splash image isn't set up to handle transparency. You probably have to make a GUI of your own and have that follow the mouse.

Think I figured out the problem. I was testing it on a virtual PC which wasn't showing the cursor when controlled. When I ran my test on a real PC, the mouse showed up just fine.

Moot.
