ShowPointer() function hide pointer for a second?

Post by fjudde » Tue Apr 05, 2016 7:58 pm

If I use the function ShowPointer() when the pointer is not hidden, the pointer disappears for a second. Is it supposed to do that? If so is there a way to check the status of the pointer? Or do I have to keep track of the status myself?

No, this definitely looks like a bug. I'll fix this. By the way, I can reproduce this problem on Windows but not on OS3. Which system are you on?

It's Windows.

I just downloaded "HW61_Win32_Setup.exe" from the download area and installed it, then i tested my little code

Code: Select all

Wait(5000, #MILLISECONDS)
Repeat
	ShowPointer()
	NPrint("Showpointer")
	For i = 1 To 10
		Wait(1000, #MILLISECONDS)
		Print(i,".")
	Next
Forever
Maybe I am stupid (Sorry). After 5 seconds when ShowPointer() is called the pointer disappear and won’t come back until I move the mouse, then it's back again until ShowPointer() is called again? Am I missing something?

What Andreas meant was that he fixed that problem for the next version of Hollywood, which is not released yet, and probably wont be for some time yet as previous update was released only short while ago.
