How to Change Mouse Cursor in Tailwind CSS

Last updated on May 8, 2022 Pennywise Loading... Post a comment

In Tailwind CSS, you can use the cursor-{style} utility to set the mouse cursor, if any, to show when the mouse pointer is over an element. Common styles of mouse cursors and corresponding classes are:

  • auto: cursor-auto
  • default: cursor-default
  • pointer: cursor-pointer
  • wait: cursor-wait
  • text: cursor-text
  • not allowed: cursor-not-allowed
  • progress: cursor-progress



Note: If you’re using Safari, this demo video might not work nicely or not start at all. Please use Chrome, Edge, Firefox, or another web browser instead.

The code:

<div class="flex p-10">
        <div class="cursor-not-allowed w-48 h-72 bg-rose-500"></div>
        <div class="cursor-progress w-48 h-72 bg-blue-500"></div>
        <div class="cursor-pointer w-48 h-72 bg-amber-500"></div>
        <div class="cursor-text w-48 h-72 bg-cyan-500"></div>
