Is there any way to use a url value for the cursor property? Trying to use a custom image for the cursor and this doesn't work:
 
cursor: "url(images/image.png) auto"

 

I am able to achieve in the HTML by adding as a style to the div. But Draggable overwrites the style. Maybe there's a way to stop that from happening? 

 

THANKS!

Glad you found the solution.

 

For full cross-browser support: try this:

/*
Cross Browser CSS cursor defined as a list containing:
1) the url relative to the source element,
2) the url relative to the style sheet,
3) and the default value.
*/
.element{
        cursor: url(cursor.cur),url(cursor/cursor.cur),default;
}

The second url for cursor url(cursor/cursor.cur) is for IE. This is because in IE, for style sheets, the base URI is that of the source element, not that of the style sheet. Which is opposite to W3C specifications, but that is Microsoft IE for you.. always has to be different.

 

Keep in mind that default can also be set to auto.

 

Hope this helps? :)
