set_tshape — Set the shape of the text cursor.
set_tshape is obsolete and is only provided for reasons of backward compatibility.
set_tshape sets the shape and the display mode of the text cursor of the output window.
A text cursor marks the current position for text output. It is different from the mouse cursor (although both will be called 'cursor', if the context makes misconceptions impossible). The available shapes for the text cursor can be queried with query_tshape.
Name of cursor shape.
Default value: 'invisible'
set_tshape returns 2 (H_MSG_TRUE) if the window is valid and the given cursor shape is defined for this window. Otherwise an exception is raised.
