Is it possible to change the appearance of the cursor in a windows and web app without doing so with a MouseRegion? I currently have a custom widget which uses a CustomPainter to paint multiple shapes on the canvas and with a MouseRegion I’m listening to the mouse events (enter/exit) to determine which shapes is the mouse hovering on. My problem is if I use a Mouse Region to wrap the CustomPainter, it will change the cursor even if the user is not on a shape on the canvas but rather is hovering in the space between the shapes.
Is there a way I can explicitly tell flutter to change the cursor to something when I need it, something along the line of, for example
Mouse.of(context) = SystemMouseCursor.text?
You could try something like this where you just wrap your entire view in a MouseRegion and then change the cursor with a setState:
Hope it helps
