I'm trying to write an application that will hide the mouse cursor if it is idle (for more than, say, a second), and is shown when the mouse is moved.
I can set the system pointer, I just don't know how to get notification of when it's moving.
The application needs to show and hide the mouse even when using other applications.
There is an application that does this
but we can't afford licenses for every machine it will be installed on.
So I'm trying to do something similar.
I will also award points to anyone who can find a free application that does this.
Just to let you know the reason for this:
The systems will not have a keyboard and mouse, but Windows 98 (which we're using) insists on displaying the mouse cursor even if there is not a mouse attached.
Ok, I'll also award points for anyone who knows how to stop the mouse being displayed if there's not one attached :)
