View Full Version : changing the cursor?
11-28-2002, 05:03 PM
I would like to change the cursor to a hand on the mouseover event.
<TD onmouseover="ChangeCursor(this)" > some stuff</td>
Is this NS capable also?

no. only IE recognises "hand"... use "pointer" instead.
As redhead said, "hand" is a proprietary cursor value MS threw in. "pointer" means the same thing, and is the correct one to use, so use that one instead. :)

Win/IE5 doesn't know what to do with cursor:pointer; it needs cursor:hand;
and Win/IE6 doesn't understand cursor:hand; and needs cursor:pointer;

I added the "cursor:pointer" to my MenuItem style in my style sheet but I still only get the I beam. The style sheet is being applied because other items are ahowing up.
What is the proper syntax for putting it in the tag itself?
<TD cursor="pointer">Something</TD> doesn't do anything and neither does
<TD cursor:pointer; class="MenuItem">Something</TD>
my tag is currently like this
<TD class="MenuItem" >Something </TD>
my style def is this;
Thanks for the help.

NEVER MIND!!!! I was having a moment of stupidity. It turns out I had definitions in two places and the one being edited was not the one being used. DUH??? :o
My cursor change works fine!
Thanks for your help.
