Subject Re: Q: Custom Spinner Graphics and Invisible Cursor.

Hi Francis,

There's no way right now, but I've created
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-411 to track the issue.  That
being said, it sounds like scaling the display may suit your needs more than
increasing the font.  You can call
display.getDisplayHost().setScale(scale:double).  I recommend using
increments of 0.5 (e.g. 1.5, 2.0, etc.).  To see what scaling the display
looks like, you can hold down CTRL+SHIFT and scroll the mouse wheel on any
Pivot app.

We don't have an API hook into setting an arbitrary cursor.  I've created
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-412 to add support for an
invisible cursor.
