Rectangle Zoom

This example creates a rectangle based on the viewport on any zoom-changed event.

Read the documentation.

TypeScript

// This example creates a rectangle based on the viewport
// on any 'zoom-changed' event.

function initMap(): void {
  const map = new google.maps.Map(
    document.getElementById("map") as HTMLElement,
    {
      zoom: 11,
      center: { lat: 40.74852, lng: -73.981687 },
      mapTypeId: "terrain",
    }
  );

  const rectangle = new google.maps.Rectangle();

  map.addListener("zoom_changed", () => {
    // Get the current bounds, which reflect the bounds before the zoom.
    rectangle.setOptions({
      strokeColor: "#FF0000",
      strokeOpacity: 0.8,
      strokeWeight: 2,
      fillColor: "#FF0000",
      fillOpacity: 0.35,
      map,
      bounds: map.getBounds() as google.maps.LatLngBounds,
    });
  });
}

JavaScript

// This example creates a rectangle based on the viewport
// on any 'zoom-changed' event.
function initMap() {
  const map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map"), {
    zoom: 11,
    center: { lat: 40.74852, lng: -73.981687 },
    mapTypeId: "terrain",
  });
  const rectangle = new google.maps.Rectangle();
  map.addListener("zoom_changed", () => {
    // Get the current bounds, which reflect the bounds before the zoom.
    rectangle.setOptions({
      strokeColor: "#FF0000",
      strokeOpacity: 0.8,
      strokeWeight: 2,
      fillColor: "#FF0000",
      fillOpacity: 0.35,
      map,
      bounds: map.getBounds(),
    });
  });
