Changing the Cursor
« on: November 02, 2009, 04:54:38 am »
Is it possible to change the cursor in SFML?
I suppose a crude hack way to do it would be to hide the cursor, and just track a sprite to mouse coordinates.
Is there a better way to do it?



Thanks

No, this is the best solution to do it (and the only one). Why do you think it is a hack?

sfmlWindow.ShowMouseCursor(false);

I don't know, it just feels weird. It feels like there should be a SetCursorSprite function somwhere.

And then what? It would be implemented using the same "hack" ;)
There's no such function in the low-level OS API, if that's what you have in mind.
