in Form2_Load i use Windows.Forms.Cursor.Hide()

then ..

on Form2_Load

Windows.Forms.Cursor.Show()

so far so good .. now i want the cursor hidden again when a close button on form2 is pressed or a user hits close button in the FormBorder..

On Event: Form2_Closing : Windows.Forms.Cursor.Hide()

This Event should be trigger both when the close button is hit on the FormBorder as wel on the when Button1 on Form2 is clicked ..

For some reason this is not working




Private Setup_Closing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs) Handles MyBase.Closing
       
      Windows.Forms.Cursor.Hide()
 
    End Sub
 
 
    Private Sub Setup_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
 
        Windows.Forms.Cursor.Show()
 
    End Sub
 
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
 
        Me.Close()
 
    End Sub

Open in new window

Perhaps you need to set a global cursor state flag and then when the first form gets the focus back, check the cursor status flag and set it appropriately.

Windows.Forms.Cursor.Hide() is the global cursus state flag i think. Whats the event is fired right afte form1 gets back in focus?
