Introduction

An infoBubble must have a nokia.maps.geo.Coordinate and content which can be either provided as a string or as a nokia.maps.search.Location object.

API defines:

Extends nokia.maps.map.component.Component.
new nokia.maps.map.component.InfoBubbles ()
Options Interface defining the info bubbles' options (keys)


Prerequisites

Nokia Maps API supported web browser (basically any modern web browser)

Important about Maps credentials

Nokia provides several services options within the Maps API offering. The service is free to use, but if you complete the free registration process and obtain authentication and authorization credentials, your application will have priority access to the service and will thus avoid a potential performance penalty. Please read the Location API Business Models and Usage Restrictions page to decide which business model best fits your needs. Authentication requires unique Maps API credentials, namely an AppId and a token. You can get these credentials from the Nokia Developer API Registration page.

Implementation

In this example we will create one infoBubble with video content from YouTube. Location is mumbai, where a info bubble would be shown with out youtube video.

Example code

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://api.maps.nokia.com/2.0.0/jsl.js" charset="utf-8">
</script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
</head>
<body style = "width:100%; height:100%;">
<div id="map" style="width:100%; height:100%;"></div>
</body>
<script type="text/javascript">
 
var myInfoBubbles = new nokia.maps.map.component.InfoBubbles();
 
var myHTMLcontent = "<div class=\"myHtmlContent\">"+"<iframe width='425' height='349' src='http://www.youtube.com/embed/Nr41eRzUnrg' frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe>"+"</div>";
 
var map = new nokia.maps.map.Display(document.getElementById("map"), // new instance of Nokia maps
{
 
components: [
myInfoBubbles,
new nokia.maps.map.component.Behavior(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.ZoomBar(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.Overview(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.TypeSelector(),
new nokia.maps.map.component.ScaleBar()
],
'zoomLevel': 10,
'center':[19.119, 72.8957]
});
 
map.set("baseMapType", map.SATELLITE);
 
myInfoBubbles.addBubble(myHTMLcontent, new nokia.maps.geo.Coordinate(19.119, 72.8957)) ;
 
</script>
</body>
</html>
