29.17 Pointer Shapes

These variables specify which shape to use for the mouse pointer in various situations, when using the X Window System:

x-pointer-shape
This variable specifies the pointer shape to use ordinarily in the Emacs frame.

x-sensitive-text-pointer-shape
This variable specifies the pointer shape to use when the mouse is over mouse-sensitive text.

These variables affect newly created frames. They do not normally affect existing frames; however, if you set the mouse color of a frame, that also updates its pointer shapes based on the current values of these variables. See section 29.3.3 Window Frame Parameters.

The values you can use, to specify either of these pointer shapes, are defined in the file `lisp/term/x-win.el'. Use M-x apropos RET x-pointer RET to see a list of them.
