Css cursor

Hello guys! evening and a happy sunday to you all. Welcome to another wonderful section of my tutorial post on CSS, we have really come a long way on CSS and i want to say a big congrats to you all.

In my last tutorial i talked about CSS padding, now in this tutorial post i want to talk about CSS cursors.

The cursor property of CSS allows you to specify the type of cursor that should be displayed to the user.

One good usage of this property is in using images for submit buttons on forms. By default, when a cursor hovers over a link, the cursor changes from to a pointer to a hand. However, it does not change form for a submit button on a form. Therefore, whenever someone hovers over an image that is a submit button, it provides a visual clue that the image is clickable.

The following table below shows the possible values for the cursor property:



  Value

                                         Description
auto
Shape of the cursor depends on the context area it is over. For example, an ‘I’ over text, a ‘hand’ over links, and so on.
crosshair
A crosshair or plus sign.
default
An arrow.
pointer
A pointing hand (in IE 4 this value is hand).
move
The ‘I’ bar.
e-resize
The cursor indicates that an edge of a box is to be moved right (east).
ne-resize
The cursor indicates that an edge of a box is to be moved up and right (north/east).
nw-resize
The cursor indicates that an edge of a box is to be moved up and left (north/west).
n-resize
The cursor indicates that an edge of a box is to be moved up (north).
Se-resize
The cursor indicates that an edge of a box is to be moved down and right (south/east).
sw-resize
The cursor indicates that an edge of a box is to be moved down and left (south/west).
s-resize
The cursor indicates that an edge of a box is to be moved down (south).
w-resize
The cursor indicates that an edge of a box is to be moved left (west).
text
The I bar.

wait
An hour glass.
help
A question mark or balloon, ideal for use over help buttons.
<url>
The source of cursor image file.

NOTE: You should try to use only these values to add helpful information for users, and in places, they would expect to see that cursor. For example, using the crosshair when someone hovers over a link can confuse the visitors.


Here is a short example below:

<p>Move the mouse over the words to see the cursor change:</p>
<div  style="cursor:auto">Auto</div>
<div  style="cursor:crosshair">Crosshair</div>
<div  style="cursor:default">Defualt</div>
<div  style="cursor:pointer">Pointer</div>
<div  style="cursor:move">Move</div>
<div  style="cursor:e-resize">e-resize</div>
<div  style="cursor:ne-resize">ne-resize</div>
<div  style="cursor:nw-resize">nw-resize</div>
<div  style="cursor:n-resize">n-resize</div>
<div  style="cursor:se-resize">se-resize</div>
<div  style="cursor:sw-resize">sw-resize</div>
<div  style="cursor:s-resize">s-resize</div>
<div  style="cursor:w-resize">w-resize</div>
<div  style="cursor:text">text</div>
<div  style="cursor:wait">wait</div>
<div  style="cursor:help">help</div>
