Hi!

I have a movie in which I want a customised cursor instead of the plain jane arrow cursor. I know that mouse trails won't help as the cursor is still displayed. Is there a way to knock off the arrow & just have trails instead.

Is there a way to do this???

Regards,

Ullas.

You can make a movie witch contains a cursor you want. Than in your first frame of your movie, by actions you can say Drag MovieClip, lock to Center, something like this: Start Drag ("yourMovie", lockcenter).
From there you can duplicate that movie clip several times and let the other 'new' clips follow your new 'mouse-movie'

Good Luck,

If you have further questions, feel free to ask.

Hi!

This would still give me the arrow of the cursor. I don't want the arrow of the cursor to be displayed. Just the mose trails.

in flash 4, there is no native function to hide the cursor. sorry, but that's the way the program works. it displays an arrow or a hand (over a button) by default. currently, there is no way in flash to hide the cursor.

however, there are third-party javascript techniques that can hide the cursor in a flash movie. one is called "quassia" and it's available as a plugin for dreamweaver (javascript behavior):

http://www.kimmuli.com/

(sorry i can't link directly to it - it's on the main page after the intro)

while this theoretically gives you a "solution", i personally would not recommend it. why? it's a pain, for one. also, i don't think the above solution works on mac, either.

director can hide the cursor, however, if it helps.

Hi! 68k,

Thanx for the answer. I had gone to that site and had checked out Quassia. It works only in a browser on windows & is not supported for a standalone .exe file.

Anyways,

Thanx,

Ullas.
