Map address bubble cut off at top

Map address bubble cut off at top

I've been trying to use the Pro Maps for Google tool to create a map for a client site, but whatever size I set the map at the address bubble is always cut off at the top - see this page as an example of what I mean:

google-map.php

Also, I've had no luck changing the width of the infoWindow, I've tried setting the maxWidth property and I've tried wrapping the windowText content in a separate div and using CSS to restrict the width. This simply restricts the width of the address text, rather than the width of the address bubble.

Any help is appreciated.

in the webassist/google_javascript/wagmp_map_4.php file, find the following code:

if (isDefault) {
infowindow.open(map4,marker);
map4.setCenter(point);
}



and change it to:

if (isDefault) {
infowindow.open(map4,marker);
map4.setCenter(point);
setTimeout("google.maps.event.trigger(wagmp_map_4_obj.markers["+wagmp_map_4_obj.markers.length+"],'click')",1000);
}




the infoWindow object does not offer a lot of control like setting the width. to be able to control the infoWindow, it would need to be converted to use the google infoBox instead.

see the following for details:

Ian,

Don't know if it helps but I have managed to get around this in the past by adjusting the centre of the map (i.e. bringing it down).

It uses a hybrid of PHP and Javascript but it does seem to work for me.

var center = new google.maps.LatLng(<?php echo $row_rsshop['shop_latitude']+0.0004; ?>, <?php echo $row_rsshop['shop_longitude']; ?>);
google.maps.event.trigger(map, "resize");
map.setCenter(center);



Cheers
Ian
