SystemWide -> ShowCursor(True) increments the cursor display counter by one, and ShowCursor(False) decrements it. The cursor is only visible if the cursor display counter is >= 0

ApplicationWide -> Screen.Cursor := crNone hides the cursor, and Screen.Cursor := crDefault restores the normal state

WindowWide -> MyWindow.Cursor := crNone (like before)
