Hi,
Perhaps hiding the mouse cursor is a solution.

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Screen.Cursor := crNone;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Screen.Cursor := crDefault;
end;

If it's not then:

procedure TForm1.CursorMoveToAndClip(cx,cy: integer);
var
  x,y: integer;
  p: TPoint;
  r: TRect;
begin
  ClipCursor(nil);
  p.x := cx;
  p.y := cy;
  p := Form1.ClientToScreen(p);
  SetCursorPos(p.x, p.y);
  r.TopLeft := p;
  r.BottomRight := p;
  ClipCursor(@r);
end;

procedure TForm1.Button3Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  CursorMoveToAndClip(10, 10);
  Sleep(2000);
  CursorMoveToAndClip(Form1.ClientWidth - 10, ClientHeight - 10);
end;

// and finally release the cursor
procedure TForm1.Button4Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ClipCursor(nil);
end;

you'd also want to unclip this cursor in your main form's onclose or perhaps in your project files after the Application.Run; , just to make sure that it's called before your app exits.

and you can with clipcursor, check this :

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, ExtCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Timer1: TTimer;
    procedure Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
    procedure FormClose(Sender: TObject; var Action: TCloseAction);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}

procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
var
   r : TRect;
begin
     r.Left := (screen.width div 2)+round(cos(3.14159265*tag/180)*(screen.width div 2));
     r.top := (screen.height div 2)+round(sin(3.14159265*tag/180)*(screen.height div 2));
     r.Right := r.Left;
     r.Bottom := r.Top;
     clipCursor(@r);
     tag := tag + 1;
end;

procedure TForm1.FormClose(Sender: TObject; var Action: TCloseAction);
begin
     clipCursor(nil);
end;

end.
