In this article we will see how we can set mouse platform visible property of the window 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). In computer user interfaces, a cursor is an indicator used to show the current position for user interaction on a computer monitor or other display device that will respond to input from a text input or pointing device. Cursor can be changed with the help of set_mouse_cursor. This property sets the platform drawn mouse cursor visibility. This is called automatically after changing the mouse cursor or exclusive mode method.
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 set_mouse_platform_visible method with the window object
Syntax : window.set_mouse_platform_visible(True)
Argument : It takes bool as argument
Return : It returns None 
 


Below is the implementation 
 

Python3

# 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 center
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
@window.event
def on_draw():
     
    # clearing the window
    window.clear()
     
    # drawing the label on the window
    label.draw()
     
# key press event   
@window.event
def on_key_press(symbol, modifier):
     
    # key "C" get press
    if symbol == pyglet.window.key.C:
         
        # close the window
        window.close()
 
# image for icon
img = image = pyglet.resource.image("logo.png")
 
# setting image as icon
window.set_icon(img)
 
# getting help cursor
help_cursor = window.get_system_mouse_cursor("help")
 
# setting this cursor to the window
window.set_mouse_cursor(help_cursor)
 
# mouse platform visible
window.set_mouse_platform_visible(True)
                
# start running the application
pyglet.app.run()
