    Default Is it possible to hide mouse pointer??

    Hello,

    I found solution for hide cursor:

    Qt Code:
    1. qApp->setOverrideCursor( QCursor( Qt::BlankCursor ) );
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    But now I am interesting to hide mouse pointer.
    Is it possible??

    Best reagards.
    John

    Do you write clean code? - if you are TDD'ing then maybe, if not, your not writing clean code.

    Hello high_flyer,

    Cursor is botton line in a text box.
    Mouse pointer is blank arrow that move around screen.

    Qt Code:
    1. qApp->setOverrideCursor( QCursor( Qt::BlankCursor ) );
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    this should hide the mouse 'pointer', the QCursros is for:
    The QCursor class provides a mouse cursor with an arbitrary shape.

    Hello,

    I am sorry, but it works fine, but there is a problem.
    When I execute my code, mouse pointer appear in the center of screen and it is visible.
    But If I move mouse, pointer will be hide.

    Then , when app start, using code I will move mouse.

    Thanks a lot.
