    What Programming Language are you using?



    Should the cursor be controlled pragramatically, or should it move in respons to a pointer device (mouse) activity?



    Is the cursor a graphic item, like an arrow or a Textpositioner, or is it more like a hilighter of visual controls, menu items or letters in a textfield?



    In what environment (on a web site, on a PC or Workstation etc) is your program intended to run?



    Most modern Programming Languages comes with several "Ready-To-Use" components or rutines that encapsulates the semi critical system level programming that handles Mouse or other pointer devices input, using System Interrupt calls (IRQ). This is how a screen cursor normally is positioned and repositioned on screen, following the coordinates given by the pointer device.

    I should be able to help if I knew a little more about your programming...

Most Microsoft languages have a "SetFocus" action such as txtName.SetFocus which moves the cursor to the txtName box. Whatever object you're defining your menu items as should have the same function or similarly named one.

How to Make Invisible Password Protected Folder Submitted by Srikanth on...


How to Make Invisible Password Protected Folder2761870.jpg Submitted by Srikanth on Thursday, 10 December 200930 Comments Do you want to password protect your folder? Do you want to make it invisible so that it remains unnoticed by the normal users? Well here is a way to do that. In this post I will show you how to make a password protected folder in Windows without using any additional software. Here is is step by step procedure to create a password protected folder.

How to create a Password Protected Folder
Step-1: Create a new folder (Right-click -> New -> Folder) and give it any name of your choice. For instance I name it as ABC.
Step-2: Now in this folder place all the important files, documents or any folders that you want to password protect.
Step-3: Now Right-click on this folder (ABC) and select the option Send To -> Compressed (zipped) Folder.
Step-4: Now a new compressed zipped folder gets created next this folder (ABC) with the same name.
Step-5: Double-click on this compressed zipped folder and you should see your original folder (ABC) here.
Step-6: Now goto the File menu and select the option Add a password.
ie: File -> Add a password
Now a small window will pop up and here you can set your desired password. Once the password is set, the folder will ask for the password every time it is opened. Thus you have now created the password protected folder.

How to make it Invisible
Step-1: Now Right-click on this password protected folder and select Properties.
Step-2: At the bottom select the option Hidden and press OK. Now your folder gets invisible (hidden).
Step-3: In order to unhide this folder go to My Computer – >Tools -> Folder options. Switch to View tab, scroll down and under Hidden files and folders you’ll see the following two options
  • Do not show hidden files and folders
  • Show hidden files and folders
Now select the second option and press OK. Now the invisible folder becomes visible in it’s location. To access it you need the password. To make it invisible again repeat step -1 through step-3 and select the first option and click OK. Now the folder becomes invisible once again.
I hope you like this post. Pass your comments!! Cheers

Si-tex cvs 106 mk11echosounder


To re-program the Si-tex CSV-106 depth sounder to feet/meters/fathoms: Push and hold down the MENU key while turning the unit on (POWER key) to enter a special menu. Release both keys after you hear two beeps, almost immediately. Use the LOWER ALARM key to select the desired unit for depth, then turn off the depth sounder. That's it, just turn on again to see the change.
There is also another menu (for testing sounder) available by pressing the MODE and turning on as above.
