I'm trying to put popups on my map to show the feature's info. I have done that, however after the first click the mouse pointer starts loading and never stops.

var control = new OpenLayers.Control.WMSGetFeatureInfo({
              url: "/geoserver/prod/wms",
              layers: [restaurantes,ruas,linhas_agua]

        getfeatureinfo: function(event) {
        if (popup)  { popup.destroy(); }
        popup = new GeoExt.Popup({
        title: "Informação",
        map: mapPanel,
        layers: [restaurantes,ruas,linhas_agua],
        width: 250,
        autoScroll: true,
        collapsible: true,
        bodyStyle: {padding: 5},
        html: event.text,


  • Do you get a valid response of your GeoServer instance? Can you check this (and maybe share the response) by your browser's developer tools? – user59046 Sep 11 '15 at 9:55
