How-to display tooltips on mouseover KML markers? (3 posts)

    Can anyone tell me how to display a tooltip when the user mouseover my KML markers?

    The KML reference says i need to add a name tag like this:
    <name>tooltip text here</name>

    I tried but can't get this working! Does anyone know how?

    Many thanks

    I just had a look at this, and I don't think it's possible at present; the Google Maps API doesn't add title attributes to the markers from KML files.

    I'm planning to add JSON-based maps to this plugin sometime in the near future, allowing for both static JSON files and AJAX-based maps. When I do, you'll be able to specify a title for each marker. I hope to get this done within the next month (workload dependent).
