Clickable hotspots in Google Maps

Post by skyfocus » Mon May 22, 2017 12:50 pm

Hi,

Maybe it is by design, but it did function in previous Pano2VR versions. I notice that the markers in the Google Map are not clickable anymore.
Before when clicking the hot-spots on the map the panorama at that place was opened in the main window.
Is this by design switched off ? How can I enable this again ?

Here are two examples (Google map behind the top right button):

Old tour with working clickable map hotspots: http://www.skyfocus.nl/SkyFocus/Tours/L ... minkhoeve/
New tour with non clickable hotspots: http://www.skyfocus.nl/SkyFocus/Tours/Vaassen-Rozeboom/

Regards,

Arjan

Hi Arjan,
The map pin element needs an action:

An additional question about this. When hovering above the Google maps hot-spot, in the past the name of the node appeared, how does this work in the new version ? Probability also an action but a simpel "when mouse enters then show tekst" does not do anything ... and how do I link to the node-name ?

Thanks Hopki, that is exactly what I was looking for.
Is it absolutely necessary that the used image is a .svg file ?
That is the only difference with my (not functioning) setup, as far as I can see.

Hi Arjan,
The image can be PNG, JPG, GIF (not animated) or SVG.
The bug is when you use a custom image for the map pin regardless of file type unfortunately.

Hopki
