Hi,

I have a website with international distributors on it - There are distributors all around the world, what I would like to do is:

1) Create a HREF Text link, as people hover over the link, it moves the view and zoom of the map to that country. The problem I have right now is that the worldwide map is so far out in zoom, that some distributors are hiding others - By zoomng in on hover of the country text link href, it should show the 2 markers closer up at a country level zoom remedying this problem.

Thanks!

Attached is a working example of mouseover zoom in and pop up.

I set the zoom to 7, but you can change that in the "mymouseover" function.

You can remove the mouseout function if you don't want it.

Thanks Mathew,

If I click the link, will it stay on that marker?

The attached is an example of where the click saves the position. It is done by added a variable to save the last clicked location and adding an onclick event.

If you want it to go back to the last clicked location instead of the center onmouseout change:

map.setCenter(new GLatLng( 9.1088986592431382, -56.6015625), 2);

To:

GEvent.trigger(gmarkers[clickedMarker], "click");
var point = gmarkers[clickedMarker].getLatLng();
map.setCenter(point,7);
