if you want to restore the original starting position, simply save the

Hello all,

I have implemented a way to rotate the view around a point in my 3D
application, by using the mouse pointer: in
fact when the left mouse button is hold down and the mouse is moved, the
view rotates around. When this process
is going on, the mouse is hidden (i.e. its shape is an empty image).
My problem is that I would like to reset the mouse pointer position
after each delta movement has been detected: in this
way the mouse pointer is always placed in the original position it was
when the mouse button was pressed. I do not know
how to do it, any help?
