Sorry to tell you, but standard C++ has no means to get rid of your cursor.
You might ask this in a compiler/OS specific newsgroup where people might be
able to help you.

Not in standard C++.

If your compiler has conio.h, then look up _setcursortype.

Otherwise, asking in a 'group concerned with your unspecified
platform/compiler might get you started.
