I have defined an OpenLayers.Select.Control - I need only hoveron and hoverout events. I have implemented it using callbacks that and it works. But I need to disable just on feature clicking functionality. How can I do that?

You may set

hover: true

Copypaste from documentation: Select on mouse over and deselect on mouse out. If true, this ignores clicks and only listens to mouse moves (

Listen for featurehighlighted and featureunhighlighted events.
