Map Properties for Placemark List

GM-Map-Detail-PlacemarkList.png

Width Placemark List Width in px

If set 0 then you've got 100% width.
It can be useful in bottom position and 100% map width

Height Placemark List Height in px
Position Values
  • No - there is no placemark list
  • ... - overlay on map
  • Left and Right - table layout
  • List-Map and Map-List - div layout
  • External - you can put ul-tag with id=GMapsMarkerUL in your place to define your place to show placemark list

For example,

<ul id="GMapsMarkerUL" style="list-style-type: none;"></ul>
Style Values
  • Simple - predefined in CSS-file
  • Advanced - predefined in CSS-file
  • External - you can define it in your template
Background Color Background Color

Example: #EAEAEA

As for gradient in my example, I've got it from internet sites. When you specify background color #E6E6E6, I add into style line

background: #E6E6E6

I've got this example

background: #fefcea; /* For old browsers */
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #fefcea, #f1da36); /* Firefox 3.6+ */
    /* Chrome 1-9, Safari 4-5 */
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, 
                color-stop(0%,#fefcea), color-stop(100%,#f1da36));
    /* Chrome 10+, Safari 5.1+ */
    background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #fefcea, #f1da36);
    background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #fefcea, #f1da36); /* Opera 11.10+ */
    background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #fefcea, #f1da36); /* IE10 */
    background: linear-gradient(top, #fefcea, #f1da36); /* CSS3 */ 
    padding: 10px;
    border: 1px solid #333;


I don't know is it true example, for all cases. But, for example, why not. I've replace start and end colors to mine. And, first background: we don't enter, because I do it.

And after all this is mine code

#E6E6E6; /* For old browsers */
     background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #E6E6E6, #AAAAAA); /* Firefox 3.6+ */
     /* Chrome 1-9, Safari 4-5 */
     background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom,
                  color-stop(0%,#E6E6E6), color-stop(100%,#AAAAAA));
     /* Chrome 10+, Safari 5.1+ */
     background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #E6E6E6, #AAAAAA);
     background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #E6E6E6, #AAAAAA); /* Opera 11.10+ */
     background: -ms-linear-gradient(top, #E6E6E6, #AAAAAA); /* IE10 */
     background: linear-gradient(top, #E6E6E6, #AAAAAA); /* CSS3 */
     padding: 10px;
     border: 1px solid #333;

I note that in IE9 there is no gradient. But it is not task to do it in my component by CSS. In any case you can do it by image and applying for class.
