// HACK ALERT: TL;DR - Hiding the cursor in WinRT/UWP apps is weird, and
// a Win32-style cursor resource file must be directly included in apps,
// otherwise hiding the cursor will cause mouse-motion data to never be
// received.
// Here's the lengthy explanation:
// There are two ways to hide a cursor in WinRT/UWP apps.
// Both involve setting the WinRT CoreWindow's (which is somewhat analogous
// to a Win32 HWND) 'PointerCursor' property.
// The first way to hide a cursor sets PointerCursor to nullptr. This
// is, arguably, the easiest to implement for an app. It does have an
// unfortunate side-effect: it'll prevent mouse-motion events from being
// sent to the app (via CoreWindow).
// The second way to hide a cursor sets PointerCursor to a transparent
// cursor. This allows mouse-motion events to be sent to the app, but is
// more difficult to set up, as:
// 1. WinRT/UWP, while providing a few stock cursors, does not provide
// a completely transparent cursor.
// 2. WinRT/UWP allows apps to provide custom-built cursors, but *ONLY*
// if they are linked directly inside the app, via Win32-style
// cursor resource files. APIs to create cursors at runtime are
// not provided to apps, and attempting to link-to or use Win32
// cursor-creation APIs could cause an app to fail Windows Store
// certification.
// SDL can use either means of hiding the cursor. It provides a Win32-style
// set of cursor resource files in its source distribution, inside
// src/main/winrt/. If those files are linked to an SDL-for-WinRT/UWP app
// (by including them in a MSVC project, for example), SDL will attempt to
// use those, if and when the cursor is hidden via SDL APIs. If those
// files are not linked in, SDL will attempt to hide the cursor via the
// 'set PointerCursor to nullptr' means (which, if you recall, causes
// mouse-motion data to NOT be sent to the app!).
// Tech notes:
// - SDL's blank cursor resource uses a resource ID of 5000.
// - SDL's cursor resources consist of the following two files:
// - src/main/winrt/SDL2-WinRTResource_BlankCursor.cur -- cursor pixel data
// - src/main/winrt/SDL2-WinRTResources.rc -- declares the cursor resource, and its ID (of 5000)
const unsigned int win32CursorResourceID = 5000;
CoreCursor ^ blankCursor = ref new CoreCursor(CoreCursorType::Custom, win32CursorResourceID);
// Set 'PointerCursor' to 'blankCursor' in a way that shouldn't throw
// an exception if the app hasn't loaded that resource.
ABI::Windows::UI::Core::ICoreCursor * iblankCursor = reinterpret_cast<ABI::Windows::UI::Core::ICoreCursor *>(blankCursor);
ABI::Windows::UI::Core::ICoreWindow * icoreWindow = reinterpret_cast<ABI::Windows::UI::Core::ICoreWindow *>(coreWindow);
