Cooperative Gesture Handling

This example uses the cooperative value for the gestureHandling option to control the panning and scrolling behavior of a map when viewed on a mobile device.

Read the documentation.

TypeScript

/**
 * This sample sets the gesture handling mode to 'cooperative',
 * which means that on a mobile device, the user must swipe with one
 * finger to scroll the page and two fingers to pan the map.
 */
function initMap(): void {
  const center = { lat: -25.363, lng: 131.044 };
  const zoom = 4;

  new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map")!, {
    zoom,
    center,
    gestureHandling: "cooperative",
  });
}

JavaScript

/**
 * This sample sets the gesture handling mode to 'cooperative',
 * which means that on a mobile device, the user must swipe with one
 * finger to scroll the page and two fingers to pan the map.
 */
function initMap() {
  const center = { lat: -25.363, lng: 131.044 };
  const zoom = 4;

  new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {
    zoom,
    center,
    gestureHandling: "cooperative",
  });
}

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;
}
