@cindex busy-cursor display
@vindex busy-cursor-delay
On a window system, Emacs can optionally display the mouse pointer
in a special shape to say that Emacs is busy. To turn this feature on
or off, customize the group @code{cursor}. You can also control the
amount of time Emacs must remain busy before the busy indicator is
displayed, by setting the variable @code{busy-cursor-delay}.
@node Cursor Display
@section Displaying the Cursor
@findex hl-line-mode
@findex blink-cursor-mode
@cindex cursor, locating visually
@cindex cursor, blinking
There are a number of ways to customize the display of the cursor.
@kbd{M-x hl-line-mode} enables or disables a global minor mode which
highlights the line around point. On window systems, the command
highlights the line containing point. On window systems, the command
@kbd{M-x blink-cursor-mode} turns on or off the blinking of the
cursor. (On terminals, the terminal itself blinks the cursor, and
Emacs has no control over it.)
You can customize the cursor's color, and whether it blinks, using
the @code{cursor} Custom group (@pxref{Easy Customization}).
@vindex x-stretch-cursor
@cindex wide block cursor
When displaying on a window system, Emacs can optionally draw the
block cursor as wide as the character under the cursor---for example,
if the cursor is on a tab character, it would cover the full width
occupied by that tab character. To enable this feature, set the
variable @code{x-stretch-cursor} to a non-@code{nil} value.
