aframe cursors Default cursor


Example

For example, we can create a ring-shaped cursor fixed to the center of the screen. To fix the cursor to the screen so the cursor is always present no matter where we look, we place it as a child of the active camera entity. We pull it in front of the camera by placing it on the negative Z axis. When the cursor clicks on the box, we can listen to the click event.

<a-entity camera>
  <a-entity cursor="fuse: true; fuseTimeout: 500"
            position="0 0 -1"
            geometry="primitive: ring; radiusInner: 0.02; radiusOuter: 0.03"
            material="color: black; shader: flat">
  </a-entity>
</a-entity>

<a-entity id="box" cursor-listener geometry="primitive: box" material="color: blue">
</a-entity>
// Component to change to random color on click.
AFRAME.registerComponent('cursor-listener', {
  init: function () {
    var COLORS = ['red', 'green', 'blue'];
    this.el.addEventListener('click', function (evt) {
      var randomIndex = Math.floor(Math.random() * COLORS.length);
      this.setAttribute('material', 'color', COLORS[randomIndex]);
      console.log('I was clicked at: ', evt.detail.intersection.point);
    });
  }
});
