Hide cursor over textbox

I’m working on a program where I’ve created a custom mouse cursor. It works great, but when I move my hidden mouse over a dynamic text box, the edit text cursor appears along with my custom mouse. How do I hide this dreaded “I” cursor?

Thanks for all the help in these forums. My previous trolling has been very educational!

I could be wrong…but i don’t think you can…

Uncheck the selectable option on the properties panel or paste this actionscript on a frame:

textfieldinstancename.selectable = false;

Oh I thought he was working with an input textbox.

Thank you all! I’ll give that a shot and let you know how it works out.

It works!!! Thanks!
