Toggling GMarker on and off

Finally, with new release (v2.77) Google Maps API provides interface to toggle on and off markers on map. I will test it soon, since right now with Run-N-Share I have some problems with markers highlighting. Now to highlight marker I have destroy old one and create new one. In FireFox it causes some delay, and it is especially visible with onmouseover/out.

With this feature (marker.hide()/marker.show()) it will be possible to do more smoothly. Just prepare two sets of markers to display (normal and highlighted) and toggle particular marker when mouse pointer hover over search results – should be enough.

One thought on “Toggling GMarker on and off

  1. For highlighting markers, I’d suggest using GMarker.setImage(), which came out last release. There are several demos of it in the blog. It’s really quite nice for highlighting.
