How can I stop my cursor changing to a vertical arrow over text?

Tags: html,css

Problem :

I have a simple <div> that is part of a grid area made up of other <div>'s I allow the user to click and double click over the <div> area. A click changes a color of the <div> and a double click opens a modal window.

When the cursor hovers over text inside the <div> then it turns to a vertical bar.

How can I make it so that the cursor always shows as a pointing finger anywhere inside the <div>. Not sure if it makes a difference but I am looking for a solution for IE9 and above.


For example is there a way I could set the CSS on the outer Div so it makes all the inner DIVs have a pointer?

Solution :

You can control the pointer using css cursor property, for example

 cursor: pointer;
