Turning blinking cursor off if VM has no focus

Version: VirtualBox 3.0.4 Keywords: cursor, blink, focus
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other


Hello, quite often I think the guest has the focus and I just type but the input goes into another windows on the host.

The problem is that the cursor on the guest blinks even if the focus is outside the VM.

Perhaps the mouse intergration could be enhanced so the (text) cursor stops blinking if the mouse is outside the VM. Or perhaps there are better ways to do it? (only if clicked outside the VM?)

That is probaly a small change, but a big difference in easy of use.

Best regards from Schorndorf, Dieter Fauth :-)

I suppose this could be done by removing the focus from the guest window that currently has it when the VM window itself looses the focus. Feasible, but I'm afraid I don't know how likely it is to happen given the number of higher priority issues which are open.

  • Priority changed from major to minor

I think it's actually a bad idea and very intrusive.
