Patch
Added in 1.1.0 / 1.13.2

Changes the current cursor graphic.

changed = SetCursor("cursor")

Arguments

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.

Returns

changed 
boolean - always 1.

Details

  • 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.
  • Texture paths may be suffixed by ".crosshair" to offset the position of the texture such that it will be centered on the cursor.
  • If called with an invalid argument, the cursor is replaced by a black square.
