Trackball cursor not visible on canvas


I'm using a Canvas object to display a very simple game, and painting it with a solid background and a movable block.  I need the trackball cursor (the regular arrow pointing up-left) to be visible, and then to retrieve its position in pointerReleased.  How do I make it visible after my initial paint of the canvas?


protected void paint(Graphics g) {
        g.fillRect(0, 0, getWidth(), getHeight());


// at this point the cursor is not visible.


Searched in the forum but couldn't find the answer - any help appreciated!
