Cursor.Hide Method

Definition

Hides the cursor.

public:
 static void Hide();
public static void Hide ();
static member Hide : unit -> unit
Public Shared Sub Hide ()

Examples

The following code example hides the cursor when the mouse pointer enters the button's client area. Likewise, when the mouse pointer leaves the button's client area, the cursor is shown again. This example requires a Form with a Button named myButton.

private:
   void myButton_MouseEnter( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      // Hide the cursor when the mouse pointer enters the button.
      ::Cursor::Hide();
   }

   void myButton_MouseLeave( Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      // Show the cursor when the mouse pointer leaves the button.
      ::Cursor::Show();
   }
private void myButton_MouseEnter(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
   // Hide the cursor when the mouse pointer enters the button.
   Cursor.Hide();
}

private void myButton_MouseLeave(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
   // Show the cursor when the mouse pointer leaves the button.
   Cursor.Show();
}
Private Sub myButton_MouseEnter(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles myButton.MouseEnter
   ' Hide the cursor when the mouse pointer enters the button.
   Cursor.Hide()
End Sub
      
      
Private Sub myButton_MouseLeave(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles myButton.MouseLeave
   ' Show the cursor when the mouse pointer leaves the button.
   Cursor.Show()
End Sub
      

Remarks

The Show and Hide method calls must be balanced. For every call to the Hide method there must be a corresponding call to the Show method.
