Hide mouse cursor?

Post by therealbiglou » Tue Mar 19, 2019 9:00 pm

Is there a way to toggle the visibility of the mouse cursor with EG? My HTPC shows the mouse centered on the screen at various times when the user is controlling things with a remote. This is a bit distracting and I'd like it hidden. However, when I do pick up the mouse, I'd like to make it visible again.

I couldn't find a plugin that would do this. Does anyone know how this could be done? Maybe even change the cursor image itself?

If you don't figure this out as an alternative you could use EG to move the mouse to a particular position like the corner of the screen to get it out of the way

I actually found a small little program called AutoHideMouseCursor that will automatically hide the cursor after a set period of time. As soon as you move the mouse, it then reappears. This is exactly the functionality I was hoping for, so for now I'll stick with it.
