My unfinished app is:


I just want to know why I can't change mouse icon when the mouse is over a marker on a WMS layer. I am using GeoServer to create the WMS layer.

  • A WMS layer is an image, there are no individual features – nmtoken Jun 4 '17 at 16:34

if you have extjs, you can do it with this way:

        info = new OpenLayers.Control.WMSGetFeatureInfo({
            url: 'http://demo.opengeo.org/geoserver/wms', 
            title: 'Identify features by hover',
            layers: [layer],
            hover: true,              
            formatOptions: {
                typeName: 'layer', 
                featureNS: 'http://www.openplans.org/topp'
            queryVisible: true


        info.events.register("getfeatureinfo", this, showWaitCursor);

        function showWaitCursor(){
            Ext.util.CSS.updateRule('div.olMap', 'cursor', 'wait')

i hope it helps you....
