Sets the current cursor texture.

changed = SetCursor(cursor)


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


boolean? - Seems to return false when the given cursor string argument was different from the previous one, otherwise returns true.


  • 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.
