CSS - Problem

Hi All,

I am trying to do a j-query pop out div which works fine but the problem is the css you have to display:none; for the window now when you do this the map only displays half / quater of the map, yet when you take the css display:none; out it the map works fine but the j-query box doesnt display right as it shows the map soon as the page is completely refreshed. I have attached the source code i am working on.

$(document).ready(function() {

//select all the a tag with name equal to modal
$('a[name=modal]').click(function(e) {
//Cancel the link behavior
e.preventDefault();

//Get the A tag
var id = $(this).attr('href');

//Get the screen height and width
var maskHeight = $(document).height();
var maskWidth = $(window).width();

//Set heigth and width to mask to fill up the whole screen
$('#mask').css({'width':maskWidth,'height':maskHeight});

//transition effect
$('#mask').fadeIn(1000);
$('#mask').fadeTo("slow",0.8);

//Get the window height and width
var winH = $(window).height();
var winW = $(window).width();

//Set the popup window to center
$(id).css('top', winH/2-$(id).height()/2);
$(id).css('left', winW/2-$(id).width()/2);

this is more a javascript problem than a css problem.

the issue is that the map is created when the page loads. It is created using the height and width of the containing object at load time, your jQuery is changing that height and width so the map is not created to the correct dimensions.

to fix the problem, find the following line of code in the google_javascript/wagmp_map_1.js file:

var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById('wagmp_map_1'));



and change it to:

var mapElem = document.getElementById('wagmp_map_1');
var mapWidth = mapElem.style.width;
var mapHeight = mapElem.style.height;
var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById('wagmp_map_1'),{size:new GSize(mapWidth.replace('px',''),mapHeight.replace('px',''))});
