View Full Version : cursor problem

02-24-2011, 01:38 PM

I have a problem with the cursor. My hole web page can be dragged and I want the hand to appear everywhere. From what I've been reading, this should be easy: cursor:pointer. But it doesn't work. My hole page has background images and some blank spots and basically in Firefox you can see the hand only where are images in the background, but not elsewhere. In Explorer everything works fine.
I have some containers and I've tried putting style="cursor:pointer;" everywhere (from html to the last container) but no result...I am sure that it's something very simple but I can't see what. Any ideas?

You shouldn’t use the pointer to denote draggable content as it commonly denotes content that reacts on a click. That’s what cursor: move; is there for. And you should also write CSS in a separate stylesheet. There you can have a simple global selector:

* {cursor: move;}

Thanks, but I still have those "blank spots" where the cursor doesn't change...
