I am trying to build a webapp for iPad using OpenLayers Mobile. One of the features it should have is that you can tap on a tree displayed on a basemap and get info about this tree. These trees are stored as a WMS service in geoserver and the info should be displayed in a popup.

In the standard version of OpenLayers I would use WMSGetFeatureInfo to achieve this, but this seems not to be working with the mobile version.

When using OpenLayers mobile, I get an error message saying: TypeError: OpenLayers.Control.WMSGetFeatureInfo is not a constructor

Can you help me fix this? Thnx in advance.
