Google maps

hi,


i am trying to make an iframe in a wordpress page to go to a larger view of the map when you click on it



currently when you click the map it goes to the point where you click so we want to change that and just make it open in a new window to a larger map.

is there a way to do it ?


i attached a screen shot so you can see the map

also the iframe code below

Thank You in advanced

 
    <div class="map"><iframe width="190"
        height="190" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"         src="https://maps.google.com/maps?oe=utf-8&amp;client=firefox-a&amp;   q=6230+E.+Speedway+Blvd.++Tucson,+AZ+85712&amp;ie
=UTF8&amp;hq=&amp;hnear=6230+E+Speedway+Blvd,+Tucson,+Arizona+85710&amp;gl=us&amp;t=m&amp;ll=32.236036,-110.859604&amp;spn=0.01452,0.01708&amp;z=14&amp;iwloc=A&amp;output=embed"></iframe></div>

Open in new window

Of course there is but an iframe is not the way to go. Just use a modal pop up. Here's a working example:
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<title>Small Map, Big Map Modal Pop Up</title>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.9.1/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false&v=3&libraries=geometry" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var marker, infowindow, map;
    $(document).ready(function(){        
        $("#smallMap").click(function(){
            if(!map){initialize();}
	        $("#screen").css("display", "block");
	        $("#result").css("display", "block");
	        $("#result").animate({"width":"912px", "height":"500px", "top":"10px", "left":"0"},'slow');
	    });
	    $("#close_map").click(function(){
	        $("#screen").css("display", "none");
	        $("#result").animate({"width":"10px", "height":"10px", "top":"400px", "left":"180px"},'slow', function(){
	            $("#result").css({"display":"none"});
	        });
	    }); 
    });
    var bounce = 3000;
    function initialize() {
        var ccLoc = new google.maps.LatLng(40.620570, -74.764724);
        var ccOptions = {
            zoom: 16,
            center: ccLoc,
            mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
        }
        map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map_canvas"), ccOptions);
        marker = new google.maps.Marker({
            position: new google.maps.LatLng(40.620570, -74.764924),
            title:"Title Here"
        });

    }
    function toggleBounce() {
        if (marker.getAnimation() != null) {
            marker.setAnimation(null);
        } else {

Open in new window

To get this to work on a WordPress site, you may need a custom page template.

COBOLdinosaurCommented:
The map is being delivered from another domain (Google).  Therefore you cannot doing any scripting against it because cross-domain scripting is a security violation that is blocked by all browsers.

You will need to spend some time exploring the Google map API to see if there is a way to do what you want either by modifying the options on the page link to Google to include the desired behavior, or to bring it directly into the main page where you may be able to script what you need.

Why not use an I frame . Why is a I frame not the way to go ?

For the reason @COBOLdinosaur pointed out.

Why NOT use a modal pop up?

COBOLdinosaurCommented:
What part of security violation do you not understand.  You cannot do anything without coding on the server side, and you do not have access to the server side.  So perhaps you should send an email to Google to please allow you to modify their code so you can get around built in browser security.

OR... you can spend time going through the AOI to see if there is a way to use if to do what you want

OR...  you can quit wasting your time trying to figure out why a hammer is the wrong tool to paint a wall.
