MOUSEBLANKER Commodity
Purpose: Blanks the mouse pointer when you are typing at the keyboard.
Format: MOUSEBLANKER [CX_PRIORITY <priority>] [SECONDS <secs>] [DELTAMOUSE <pixels>] [DONOTWAIT]
Template: CX_PRIORITY/K/N, SECONDS/K/N, DELTAMOUSE/K/N, DONOTWAIT/K
Path: SYS:Tools/Commodities/MouseBlanker
MOUSEBLANKER blanks the mouse pointer from the display when you are typing at the keyboard. The mouse pointer returns to the screen when you move the mouse again.

The CX_PRIORITY <priority> argument sets the priority of MOUSEBLANKER in relation to all of the other Commodity Exchange programs. All of the Commodity Exchange programs are set to a default priority of 0. If you specify a <priority> higher than 0, MOUSEBLANKER will take priority over any other Commodity Exchange program.

The SECONDS <seconds> argument specifies the delay period before the mouse pointer is blanked. The default is ?? seconds.

The DELTAMOUSE <pixels> argument specifies how many pixels the mouse pointer must be moved before reactivation occurs. This can be useful to prevent accidental triggering. The default is 1 pixels.

MOUSEBLANKER can also be started by from a shell, double-clicking on its icon, from the Exchange window or including it in the WBStartup drawer so that it automatically starts each time you boot. It does not open a window.

To disable MOUSEBLANKER , simply run it again, or open the Exchange window, select MOUSEBLANKER from the scroll gadget, and select the Remove gadget.
