Add a Map Web Component with Events

This example adds event handling to a map web component, to show an InfoWindow when a marker is clicked.

Read the documentation.

TypeScript

// This example adds a map using web components.
function initMap(): void {
  console.log('Maps JavaScript API loaded.');
  const advancedMarkers = document.querySelectorAll("#marker-click-event-example gmp-advanced-marker");
  for (const advancedMarker of advancedMarkers) {

    customElements.whenDefined(advancedMarker.localName).then(async () => {
      advancedMarker.addEventListener('gmp-click', async () => {

        const infoWindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({
          //@ts-ignore
          content: advancedMarker.title,
        });
        infoWindow.open({
          //@ts-ignore
          anchor: advancedMarker
        });
      });
    });
  }
}

declare global {
  interface Window {
    initMap: () => void;
  }
}
window.initMap = initMap;

JavaScript

// This example adds a map using web components.
function initMap() {
  console.log("Maps JavaScript API loaded.");

  const advancedMarkers = document.querySelectorAll(
    "#marker-click-event-example gmp-advanced-marker",
  );

  for (const advancedMarker of advancedMarkers) {
    customElements.whenDefined(advancedMarker.localName).then(async () => {
      advancedMarker.addEventListener("gmp-click", async () => {
        const infoWindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({
          //@ts-ignore
          content: advancedMarker.title,
        });

        infoWindow.open({
          //@ts-ignore
          anchor: advancedMarker,
        });
      });
    });
  }
}

window.initMap = initMap;

CSS

/* 
 * Always set the map height explicitly to define the size of the div element
 * that contains the map. 
 */
#map {
  height: 100%;
}

/* 
 * Optional: Makes the sample page fill the window. 
 */
html,
body {
  height: 100%;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
}

gmp-map {
  height: 400px;
}
