We're using a custom mouse pointer; a white blob with a grey shadow:
which works absolutely fine and as expected, except when positioned over a textArea/textInput, where the mouse caret still displays through it like so:
is there anyway to remove/replace the caret symbol?
I don't think you get control over the cursor when over an input TextField.
If you don't want to allow editing at that time, you could cover the
TextArea with a transparent UIComponent.
