Window applet and mouse pointer

843807Aug 17 2010 — edited Aug 17 2010
Hi all!

I am developing a framwork to create educacional games to the OLPC (one laptop per child) project.

So, in this framework the games run in a Window application (JFrame) over a JApplet.

The problem is that I dont know how to hide the mouse pointer that appears over my window applet. I try to use the Toolkit.createCustomCursor(..) and them use the setCursor(..) method, but not work because the security policy.

Anybody have some ideia about how can I solve this problem?

here is a link that demonstrate my application running, and the mouse pointer over all the graphics.

Thank you!
