public:
 static void Show();
public static void Show ();
static member Show : unit -> unit

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 'myButton_MouseEnter
      
      
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 'myButton_MouseLeave
      

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.
