I have my own ‘selection’ rendering/highlighting in a floating window and I want to hide the cursor.
Any attempt to restyle the cursor seems to not change anything from the default inverted.
vim.opt.termguicolors = true on and have tried:
vim.cmd[[hi Cursor blend=100]]
When I look up the highlight I see that it was applied, but it still shows the same exact cursor.
Event setting other colors doesn’t seem to change it at all.
What am I missing here?

I did mess around with that, I was able to hide it if it the cursor was on a blank cell, but as soon as it was on a non white space character it showed up.
I guess unfortunately the solution is to override all mappings and mouse evnets that can move the cursor. Kind of a pain, but doable.
Possibly also helpful for you if you are trying to build a true modal dialog where you want 100% control over the mappings:
