How to override css cursor property of a hovered button?

Tags: javascript,jquery,html,css,cursor

Problem :

I have a <button>, when the user hover it, the cursor become pointer (via CSS).

When the user click on the <button>, the cursor of all the page should become wait (via jQuery).

However, if the user keeps the cursor inside <button>, it will stay as pointer. How can I fix this ?

Live example :

Tested with Chrome 36.0.1985.125 (last version)

Solution :

Add a class for html that sets the cursor and sets all elements to also have the wait cursor when html has that class


html.wait, html.wait * {

then instead of doing


use addClass to add the wait class to html


JSFiddle Demo

Then when done just use removeClass to remove the class
