    Hiding the mouse pointer...

    Greetings,

    Can anyone point me in the right direction to hide or disable the mouse

    Hi,

    Use...

    Declare Function ShowCursor Lib "user32" Alias "ShowCursor" (ByVal bShow As
    Long) As Long

    bShow = FALSE to hide, TRUE to 'show' again.

    Kind Regards,
