how do I show the gui over the mouse

Hi all.

Im starting a new screen saver and im using gui creation mixed with avi creation to do it. I havent gone far in the script but I would like to tackle a fresh problem in the begining so that it doesnt show up later and bite me. I would like to hide the curser while the script is running and show the curser again when the script exits.

heres my code:

#include<GUIConstants.au3>
$mainsaver = GUICreate("",@DesktopWidth,@DesktopHeight,0,0,$WS_POPUP)
GUISetBkColor (0x000000)
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")
GuiSetState() 
While 1 
    $msg = GuiGetMsg() 
    Select 
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE 
        ExitLoop 
        
    EndSelect
WEnd
Exit

Func Terminate()
    Exit 0
EndFunc

Could someone plz help?

p.s.

I probably wouldnt know where in the script to insert the code, so if someone could show me, I would be greatful.

thx

There's a very easy way to do this using GUISetCursor. I've also included another way using DllCall, which you probably won't need.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

$gui = GUICreate('', 200, 200)

; Method 1: Hides the cursor in client area
; Uncomment following line for example
; GUISetCursor(16, 1)

; Method 2: Hides cursor for entire window (even the titlebar)
; Uncomment following line for example
; DllCall('user32.dll', 'int', 'ShowCursor', 'int', 0)

GUICtrlCreateLabel('Your mouse will disappear when over this window. Press Escape while this window is focussed to exit.', 0, 0, 200, 200)
GUISetState()

While 1
    $gm = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $gm
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop
    EndSwitch

GUICreate('Fullscreen', 1, 1, Default, Default, BitOr($WS_POPUP, $WS_MAXIMIZE))
; Yes it's only 1x1. Just try it, you'll see.
GUISetState()

Sleep(3000)

Thank you very much!!! This is ausom!

Just one more question? Sence its going to be a screen saver, its going to need to be able to close when the user moves the mouse. Is there a code to make that work?

If you haven't already seen them have a look at lokster's screen savers in Example scripts. They're really good and it will show you how it's all done.
