POI Click Events

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

This example demonstrates the use of click event listeners on POIs (points of interest). It listens for the click event on a POI icon and then uses the placeId from the event data with a directionsService.route request to calculate and display a route to the clicked place. It also uses the placeId to get more details of the place.
