Hide Mouse Curser Globally From an Application

You can call an escape code to globally enable/disable the mouse cursor.

#define ESCAPECODEBASE 100000

DWORD old_cursor=0;
DWORD new_cursor=0;

// Get Cursor Status
ExtEscape(GetDC(NULL), MOUSECURSOR, 0, NULL, 4, (char*)&old_cursor);

// Disable Cursor
ExtEscape(GetDC(NULL), MOUSECURSOR, 4, (char*)&new_cursor, 4, (char*)&old_cursor);

// Enable Cursor
ExtEscape(GetDC(NULL), MOUSECURSOR, 4, (char*)&new_cursor, 4, (char*)&old_cursor);


Using escape codes is not supported on iMX6
