CURSOR BE GONE! Help!

CURSOR BE GONE! Help!

CURSOR BE GONE! Help!

(OP)
I am using FPW 2.6.

I have a popup message screen appears for 5 seconds in my program.
Although, the darn cursor flashes inside the screen (box)

Can someone please tell me how to disable the flashing cursor from appearing?   


Thanks,

Mark Geer

RE: CURSOR BE GONE! Help!

If you are using INKEY() for the pause, use the 'HM' parameters:

nKey = INKEY(5, 'HM')

H = Hide cursor
M = Mouse click will count as keypress.

If not, what are you using for a pause?

HI
Just before the command POPUP SCREEN...what you have.. add the line of code
SYS(2002)
** This is equivalent to SET CURSOR OFF
And when you want to enable the cursor visibility.. put the line of code..
SYS(2002,1)
** This is equivalent to SET CURSOR ON
Hope this helps you
