Configuration

An object defining configuration options for the Map widget.

accessKey

Specifies the shortcut key that sets focus on the widget.

Type:

String

Default Value: null

The value of this option will be passed to the accesskey attribute of the HTML element that underlies the widget.

activeStateEnabled

Specifies whether or not the widget changes its state when interacting with a user.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: false

This option is used when the widget is displayed on a platform whose guidelines include the active state change for widgets.

autoAdjust

Specifies whether the widget automatically adjusts center and zoom option values when adding a new marker or route, or if a new widget contains markers or routes by default.

Type:

Boolean

Default Value: true

If autoAdjust is enabled, zoom is set to the maximum value allowing all markers and routes to be displayed at the same time. The center is changed so that markers and routes are aligned with the widget's center. Set the autoAdjust option to false to disable this behavior.

Note that the zoom level can only be automatically decreased to display all markers and routes. If the current zoom level allows all routes and markers to be displayed on the map, it remains unchanged.

center

An object, a string, or an array specifying which part of the map is displayed at the widget's center using coordinates. The widget can change this value if autoAdjust is enabled.

Type:

Object

|

String

Array<Number>

You can specify the center value in one of the following formats:

  • { lat: 40.749825, lng: -73.987963}
  • "40.749825, -73.987963"
  • [40.749825, -73.987963]
  • "Brooklyn Bridge,New York,NY"

When you use the Map as an ASP.NET MVC Control, this option accepts either a string value indicating the address, or two double type values indicating the coordinates.
