PYGLET – Getting System Mouse Cursor Object
  • Last Updated : 22 Sep, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the system mouse cursor object in PYGLET module in python. Pyglet is easy to use but powerful library for developing visually rich GUI applications like games, multimedia etc. A window is a “heavyweight” object occupying operating system resources. Windows may appear as floating regions or can be set to fill an entire screen (fullscreen).We can obtain a system mouse cursor object which can be used with set_mouse_cursor to make the cursor returned by this method active.

We can create a window with the help of command given below

 pyglet.window.Window(width, height, title)

In order to create window we use get_system_mouse_cursor method with the window object

Syntax : window.get_system_mouse_cursor(cursor_name)

Argument : It takes string as argument

Return : It returns Cursor object

Below is the implementation

# importing pyglet module
import pyglet
import pyglet.window.key
# width of window
width = 500
# height of window
height = 500
# caption i.e title of the window
title = "Geeksforgeeks"
# creating a window
window = pyglet.window.Window(width, height, title)
# text 
text = "GeeksforGeeks"
# creating a label with font = times roman
# font size = 36
# aligning it to the centre
label = pyglet.text.Label(text,
                          font_name ='Times New Roman',
                          font_size = 36,
                          x = window.width//2, y = window.height//2,
                          anchor_x ='center', anchor_y ='center')
# on draw event
def on_draw():
    # clearing the window
    # drawing the label on the window
# key press event    
def on_key_press(symbol, modifier):
    # key "E" get press
    if symbol == pyglet.window.key.E:
        # closing the window
# start running the application
# cursro name eg "help"
name = "wait"
# getting window size
value = window.get_system_mouse_cursor(name)
# showing value
print("Cursor Object : ", end = "")

Output :

Cursor Object : pyglet.window.win32.Win32MouseCursor object at 0x000001CC009EA7C8
