API SetCursor

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Changes the current cursor graphic.

changed = SetCursor("cursor")


String - cursor to switch to; either a built-in cursor identifier (like "ATTACK_CURSOR"), path to a cursor texture (e.g. "Interface/Cursor/Taxi"), or nil to reset to a default cursor.


Flag - always 1.


  • If the cursor is hovering over WorldFrame, the SetCursor function will have no effect - cursor is locked to reflect what the player is currently pointing at.
  • If called with an invalid argument, the cursor is replaced by a black square.
