Maps Features

  • I'm very new to Sitefinity and am looking for a way to alter how the maps associated with address fields behave. When I click on a pin representing an address, nothing happens. Instead, I'd like for it to display a balloon with the address and a link to get directions--more like the behavior you'd expect from Google Maps. Is this possible?

    Thanks,
    Marcy
  • Yes, you will need to use the maps API and bind to the the click event of that marker. 
    var infoWindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();var infoWindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();// Created the info window that you will see when marker is clicked
     
    google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function () //get the marker instance that Sitefinity is using
            infoWindow.close();
            infoWindow.setContent("Put HTML markup here including directions link");
            infoWindow.open(map, marker);
        );
