hidecursor message problem

    Jul 15 2009 | 7:26 pm
    message ';max hidecursor $1'returns the alert (yellow)
    max: extra arguments for message "hidecursor"
    same beaviour with 'showcursor'.
    and, after the first call, it doesn't work anymore.
    Could anyone confirm this?
    maxmsp 5.0.7 jitter 1.7 osx 10.5.7

      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?
