How to Change Mouse Cursor in Tailwind CSS

Updated: December 18, 2023 By: Khue 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



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>

That’s it. Happy coding!
