I have configured helm to hide the minibuffer and show the input in the header line following this instructions.
The relevant code is this:
(defun helm-hide-minibuffer-maybe () (when (with-helm-buffer helm-echo-input-in-header-line) (let ((ov (make-overlay (point-min) (point-max) nil nil t))) (overlay-put ov 'window (selected-window)) (overlay-put ov 'face (let ((bg-color (face-background 'default nil))) `(:background ,bg-color :foreground ,bg-color))) (setq-local cursor-type nil)))) (add-hook 'helm-minibuffer-set-up-hook 'helm-hide-minibuffer-maybe)
I want the cursor-type to be of type 'bar but setting this in the code above just yields an additional cursor with type 'bar in the minibuffer. The cursor in the helm header line is still a 'box. How to solve this?
