Hiding the Windows mouse pointer


I would like to substitute the Window's cursor with my own gfx pointer. Has anyone done this?

Is there a way to turn off the Windows pointer from afl or assign it to and low Z-order?

Many thanks!

In short: you can't.

Mouse pointer does not really belong to application. It is system-wide controlled/drawn by Windows.

Windows API provides methods to change its look temporarily when mouse is within your application window, but such functionality is not available from AFL.
