Place Details

This sample demonstrates how to use the Places service's getDetails() method to retrieve Place Details for a particular place, and add a marker to the map which displays the details when clicked.

TypeScript

// This example requires the Places library. Include the libraries=places
// parameter when you first load the API. For example:
// <script src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=YOUR_API_KEY&libraries=places">

function initMap(): void {
  const map = new google.maps.Map(
    document.getElementById("map") as HTMLElement,
    {
      center: { lat: -33.866, lng: 151.196 },
      zoom: 15
    }
  );

  const request = {
    placeId: "ChIJN1t_tDeuEmsRUsoyG83frY4",
    fields: ["name", "formatted_address", "place_id", "geometry"]
  };

  const infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();
  const service = new google.maps.places.PlacesService(map);

  service.getDetails(request, (place, status) => {
    if (status === google.maps.places.PlacesServiceStatus.OK) {
      const marker = new google.maps.Marker({
        map,
        position: (place.geometry as google.maps.places.PlaceGeometry).location
      });
      google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function() {
        infowindow.setContent(
          "<div><strong>" +
            place.name +
            "</strong><br>" +
            "Place ID: " +
            place.place_id +

            place.formatted_address +

        );
        // @ts-ignore
        infowindow.open(map, this);
      });
    }

       * element that contains the map. */
#map {
