scrollbar on infowindow

I created a map on a plain page using the 'Insert Google Map' wizard, on which, the infowindow appears fine. (all tested browsers)

When I plug the page into my framework, the infowindow has a scrollbar. (on Chrome and IE8, seems OK in FF)

Anything I can do about this ?

Also is there anyway I can change the appearance of the infowindow, (rounded corners, colour ?) as I can't seem to find any info on the googlemaps api pages.

plain page: map.php

proper page: find_us.php


..oh, and the pushpin doesn't appear, either on the plain page or the framework page

I'm not finding any one cause to this issue, it sea,s to have something to do with the line height and width settings on the body tag:

body {
background-color: #000;
background-image: url(../../images/goldline.jpg);
background-position: left 160px;
background-repeat: repeat-x;
background-attachment: scroll;
color: #FFFFCC;
font-family: "Trebuchet MS", Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 14px;
line-height: 16px;
margin: 0 0 0 0; /* Sets the margin properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
padding: 0 0 0 0; /* Sets the padding properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */
text-align: center; /* Centers the page content container in IE 5 browsers. */
background-attachment: scroll;
}




try commenting those out.


The google map V3 API does not offer a way of customizing the info window and adding rounded corners.

for the marker icons:

This is a bug we have identified in Design Extender, we will be releasing an update early next week, this issue should be included in that update.

in the mean time, the fix is to edit the map JS file in the webassist/google_javascript folder.

do a search for :

'google_javascript/images/




and replace each instance with:

'webassist/google_javascript/images/



to update the marker image paths top the correct location.

Thanks jason.

commenting out the line height in the body tag sorted out the scrollbar, as did amending the path in the wagmp_map_1.php page
