Getting Properties With Event Handlers

This example listens for the zoom_changed event and updates an info window when the zoom level changes.

Read the documentation.

TypeScript

function initMap(): void {
  const originalMapCenter = new google.maps.LatLng(-25.363882, 131.044922);
  const map = new google.maps.Map(
    document.getElementById("map") as HTMLElement,
    {
      zoom: 4,
      center: originalMapCenter,
    }
  );

  const infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({
    content: "Change the zoom level",
    position: originalMapCenter,
  });

  infowindow.open(map);

  map.addListener("zoom_changed", () => {
    infowindow.setContent("Zoom: " + map.getZoom()!);
  });
}

declare global {
  interface Window {
    initMap: () => void;
  }
}
window.initMap = initMap;

JavaScript

function initMap() {
  const originalMapCenter = new google.maps.LatLng(-25.363882, 131.044922);
  const map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {
    zoom: 4,
    center: originalMapCenter,
  });
  const infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({
    content: "Change the zoom level",
    position: originalMapCenter,
  });

  infowindow.open(map);
  map.addListener("zoom_changed", () => {
    infowindow.setContent("Zoom: " + map.getZoom());
  });
}

window.initMap = initMap;

CSS

/* 
 * Always set the map height explicitly to define the size of the div element
 * that contains the map. 
 */
#map {
  height: 100%;
}

/* 
 * Optional: Makes the sample page fill the window. 
 */
html,
body {
  height: 100%;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
}
