Thanks for noticing, it has been fixed for the next incremental.

Is there a constrain cursor message to keep the cursor from moving outside a certain area?

Such as when using the show/hide cursor message to make a custom mouse roll-over cursor for a multislider – so the new cursor can’t go outside the multislider with the mouse down.

There’s no constrain per se, but you can achieve that by using the ; max pupdate message.

I am trying to hide the cursor in a standalone which includes a vst~ plugin object loaded with Kontakt 4. I am running the standalone on a touchscreen so do not want the mouse visible at all.

The “hidecursor” message works great until I ask Kontakt to load a new multi (an fxp file). As soon as the progress bar appears and Kontakt is loading then the mouse cursor re-appears and will not let me hide the cursor until its finished loading.

Is there a way of keeping the cursor hidden at all times?
