First, I am a programmer, not a designer hence my question.
I am working on a project where almost every row in all of the tables are clickable. To demonstrate this, the cursor turns into a pointer, rather than the arrow.
Now, I have received feedback from a couple of designers saying to add a hover style to the clickable rows. Why is this necessary? I am going to implement a hover style because of the feedback, but I am wondering why the cursor change isn't enough to show that it is clickable.
Addituonally, when hovering a row, is it better to change background color, text color, or underlining of all the text in the row?
