tried it, but my big hand is reduced by win7! maybe there is a way to force a bigger mouse cursor?

sorry homeview and album list cursors still don't work. i can't figure out why. everything seems good in the code.
but guess what? the master cursor is back! and this time it is the real master! :D

in colors.ini

to make the SAME images\skin\.cur or .ani pointer appear over EVERYTHING in EJ
[MasterCursor]
File=Hand96no.cur
OverIE=True

to allow the .dis list elements to have their own cursor: url('s

[MasterCursor]
File=Hand96no.cur
OverIE=False

[HandCursor]
Disabled=True

beta update installer attached (a dll for the cursors is now installed)

Thank you so much Audiosoft! it works rather well with your dll.
if i add this in color.ini:
[MasterCursor]
File=Bighand-Simple.cur
OverIE=False
[HandCursor]
Disabled=True
i get the big cursor on all the "system" buttons (play controls, main menu bar...), Great! :D but i can also use additional cursors in the .dis. :cool:

I just noticed a Collateral bug: if you reduce the Right Panel, ej crash as soon as you expand it again. then you need to edit ejukebox.ini: [rpanel] open=1, otherwise ej crash again each time you try to expand the right panel. :o
Thanks again for your efficiency. now we can face the cobra! ;)

PS: the only important missing feature is the now playing panel which cannot be stretched vertically because the resizing cursor is not displayed.

trying to figure out what is causing left panel expanding freeze...only seems to happen when there are video backgrounds

this exe makes it so you see the re-sizer cursors
also a new item on the Tools button menu "Hide Cursor for Touchscreen" / "Show Cursor"

Pirk,
the annoyance i have with the [MasterCursor] is the flickering to the old cursors and the hourglass
there is no way to prevent the hourglass since windows is running the .cur file

I have invented a way to get around this limitation with PNG files!
EJ can now hide the windows cursors and show a pointer.png where the pointer should be.
it shows it as fast as the system pointer! plus has a pointerdown.png :D

so a non flickering pointer is now possible!
and with BETA3's EXE it is the default for all skins unless there is a [MasterCursor]file and no pointer.png.

First, to test Beta3 switch to a skin with no custom cursor and it will generate the default C:\EJukebox\pointer.png and pointerdown.png files

If you want to let .dis control cursors you can still use this code in colors.ini
and if there is also a pointer.png and pointerdown.png in the skin then EJ will use them and respect OverIE=False ;)
[MasterCursor]
File=Hand96no.cur
OverIE=False
OffSetX=0 //NEW Sets the PNG position for desired HOTSPOT
OffSetY=0

Ah thanks for this Beta Audiosoft.
so i'm trying the new features! nice your blue cursors.
-i noticed a little forgetting: no PNG positioning over ej when ej is not focused. a "lazy cursor" in some! ;) sometimes it works good, sometimes not. it seems the problem occurs when a window is reduced.
-if i use the "[MasterCursor] File=Bighand.cur OverIE=False" option then i lose the PNG cursor over the Homeview: normal you will say.. but pity since the cursors in homeview.ini don't work. i don't know if the IE Homeview cursors will be fixed or not. maybe you could exclude the Homeview in color.ini option, at least temporarily?
-well now ej freezed, i don't know if it's related to the new cursors. but nevertheless PNGpointer.exe is still running for Windows! :D
Thank you for everything.

Thanks Pirk I will work on the pointer.png more. It was very difficult to get it to show .dis cursors with it. i will look at homeview and albumlist cursors again and if IE9 still won't show them i will try to get pointer.png to show for them but not the other .dis.

it also seems it flickers every 1 sec when EJ is paused or playing video so i will try to better that. The hardest part is getting it to hide the pointer.png over non ejukebox windows. there must be delay before png disappears - that should work in beta 3. hopefully i can make the delay less but it might not possible without destroying pointer.png movement performance.

So now an idea...
maybe i could make it kill PNGPointer.exe if EJ freezes
or maybe instead make PNGPointer.exe restart ejukebox.exe when it freezes. Probally would need a time out interval to determine when EJ is really totally unresponsive and not just hard at work. maybe 20seconds of EJ not responding for an auto crash restart

btw why do you have Enabled=True in your screen when you have no [PNGBackgrounds]? Set that to Enabled=False

ok i edited my color.ini: [PNGBackgrounds] Enable=False

just a question: how to disable PNGpointer.exe and recover the windows cursors until your program works better? because a invisible cursor when you don't have a touchscreen, it's not so cool! :D

Thanks for your hard work on ej cursors!

ah yes there also needs to be a new option to use the old windows cursors

with beta3 to get cursor instead of pointer.png the only way is

in colors.ini use
[MasterCursor]
File=something.cur

rename any C:\EJukebox\images\skinname\pointer.png to something else like Xpointer.png
Tools->skinname->Reload Colors


Also make sure you click Tools->Show Cursor if needed.
i figured the location of that new option would be the easiest to get to without a cursor. That option is the only one that can make the cursor invisible. Also the cursor can only be invisible over EJ. As soon as the mouse leaves an ejukebox.exe window it always shows the windows pointer.

yes you are right, but inside EJ very often the PNG cursor disappears or it stays sticked somewhere! especially that currently i edit my homeview.ini: with the last beta i juggle from Notepad to EJ difficultly.. so i returned to the previous version: i prefer a few flickering in EJ than no cursor at all.

Thanks for the report Pirk!
after many hours of searching i have finally discovered the solution! beta4 is up and the pointer.png now works much better - it stays visible! it only hides (now immediately) when you mouse off of EJ.
also made pointer.png always show over the web browser, homeview and the albumlist :D

Great this time the PNG cursor works to Perfection! you did a good job. :cool:
However now there a bug with your new Autorestart exe: i killed the program otherwise the AutoRestart close and restart EJ before it finished to load. i only see the splash screen then EJ restart, a endless cycle.

Many thanks for your perseverance!

well maybe i spoke a bit too soon. after it worked long enough the PNG pointer suddenly sticked over EJ. since that, even after i restarted EJ -still need to kill ejukeboxAutorestart.exe before it has killed ejukebox.exe and ejukeboxPointer.exe: you know like in Westerns!- i can't get the PNG pointer to work. credit exhausted? ok it's still in Beta.. ;)

ok new beta4 is up
for now...autorestart.exe is gone

so what happens with the pointer?
does ejukeboxpointer.exe stay open?
do you see the pointer at all?

since beta4 pointer.png has been working perfect for me on XP and Win7...but there is still the potential that the pointer.exe might close itself when ej does not respond within 14 sec.

sounds like the mouse position is being unhooked...
maybe by another program that hooks the mouse?

when the mouse position freezes see
does it still show the mouse down and up changes when you click?

and see ejukeboxPointer.exe in taskmanager and how much CPU it is using when frozen

i restarted EJ once more. the ejukebox pointer worked good for a short time, then it disappeared (not sticked but invisible). ejukeboxpointer.exe was (and is) still running : 0% cpu.
