Implementation

API Definition of Rectangle:

    new nokia.maps.map.Rectangle (bounds, props)

Definition for the BoundingBox, used to form the rectangle:

new nokia.maps.geo.BoundingBox (topLeft, [bottomRight, [skipValidation]])

Example code

This is a full example with HTML and JavaScript.

<head>
<script type="text/javascript"
src="http://api.maps.nokia.com/2.0.0/jsl.js" charset="utf-8">
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="map" style="width:100%; height:80%;"></div>
</body>
<script type="text/javascript">
 
var myBoundingBox = new nokia.maps.geo.BoundingBox ([53.1, 13.1], [43.1, 40.1]);
 
var map = new nokia.maps.map.Display(document.getElementById("map"), // new instance of Ovi Maps
{
components: [ 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': 4,
'center':[53.1, 13.1]
});
 
map.set("baseMapType", map.NORMAL);
 
map.objects.add(
new nokia.maps.map.Rectangle(myBoundingBox,
{
precision: 36,
simplify: 16,
fillColor: "FFFFCC",
color: "E8FA75",
width: 8
}));
 
</script>
