    Peter,
    A bit too much work.
    To move the mouse(generate a WM_MOUSEMOVE) use the followng:

    GetCursorPos tpt
    SetCursorPos tpt.x, tpt.y

    Borje,
    It's not just DDT. The original code where I first noticed it was straight SDK.

    I just move the mouse to make sure it shows up as expected:

    Code:
    FUNCTION MoveCursor ALIAS "MoveCursor" () EXPORT AS LONG
    LOCAL pnt AS pointapi
     
      GetCursorPos pnt
      IF pnt.x > 0 THEN
        SetCursorPos pnt.x - 1, pnt.y
      ELSE
        SetCursorPos pnt.x + 1, pnt.y
      END IF
      SetCursorPos pnt.x, pnt.y
    END FUNCTION

    Maybe it is a DDT dialog "feature"? Similar thing happens when one sets
    MOUSEPTR 11 and THEN try to restore with MOUSEPTR 0. Must move mouse to
    activate. Simple fix is to restore to MOUSEPTR 1. In this case it may
    help to trap %EN_CHANGE notification under %WM_COMMAND and reset the
    mouse pointer manually? Untested, but in dialog's callback:
    Code:
    CALLBACK FUNCTION DlgProc() AS LONG
      SELECT CASE CBMSG
         CASE %WM_COMMAND
            IF CBCTLMSG = %EN_CHANGE THEN MOUSEPTR 3 (or 1, whatever..)
      END SELECT
    END FUNCTION

    Semen,
    I just installed SP2. No change.
    I was concerned that it was my program that caused it (when I first noticed it).
    Now that I know that it's my system I can live with it, no big deal, but I am
    still courious why??
    I have Win2k installed on 2 systems and they both exhibit the same characteristics.
    I do have W95DOSHERE (from prowertoys) installed on both systems??

    On my PC it appears again "automatic" and I don't remember another behaviour (I use Win2000 much more than one year and re-installed it many times).
    Maybe time to think about Russian release ?

    If seriously, it's obviously not Win2000 problem as it is.
    If you have normal distributive (I mean non-upgrade/OEM variant), try to reinstall from "zero base" w/o installing external drivers.

    Semen,
    The pointer appears again only if you move the mouse or press the Alt key.

    Hmm ... Cusrsor temporary disappears, when you type symbols, and then appears again - yes.
    Or it doesn't appear again on your PC at all ?

    Semen,
    Same problem using your source. If the pointer is within the boundries of the
    Dialog the pointer vanishes when you start entering text.

    I have not applied SP2 yet.

    I don't see and never saw any troubles on my PC (Win2000 Pro + SP2)
    Code:
       #Compile Exe
       #Dim All
       #Register None
       #Include "WIN32API.INC"
       
       %ID_TEXTBOX = 101
    
       Function PbMain
          Dim hDlg As Long
          Dialog New 0, "Any problems ?", , , 160, 45, %WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW To hDlg
          Control Add TextBox, hDlg, %ID_TEXTBOX, "", 10, 10, 80, 12
          SetClassLong GetDlgItem(hDlg, %ID_TEXTBOX), %GCL_HCURSOR, LoadCursor(ByVal 0, ByVal %IDC_ARROW)
          Control Add Button, hDlg, %IDOK, "Ok", 100, 5, 50, 14
          Control Add Button, hDlg, %IDCANCEL, "Cancel", 100, 26, 50, 14
          Dialog Show Modal hDlg
       End Function

    Semen,
    The standard pointer is not the issue.
    I thought I had problems with my code in an interpreter I'm working on
    because the mouse pointer disappeared whenever I started entering text in an
    edit field. It did not reappear until the mouse was moved or the alt key was pressed.
    I finally tried the code on Win98 and it worked fine ( pointer did not disappear).

    I see both - caret and cursor.
    If you don't like standart cursor, SetClassLong GetDlgItem(hDlg, ...), %GCL_HCURSOR, ...

    Nathan,
    I don't see it.
    All I see is Enable pointer shadow.

    I think this is an actual "feature" of Windows 2000. In the Mouse pcl in
    Control Panel there is an option called 'Vanish' that hides your mouse cursor
    while you type.

    started a topic Disappearing Mouse Pointer

    Disappearing Mouse Pointer

    I chased this one for quite awhile this am.
    The mouse pointer dissapears on my Win2k system when entering text in a single line edit box.
    No problems on Win98SE.

    Any Ideas???

    Here is the source I used.
