View Full Version : [FIXED] Google Maps Listener on click

5 Apr 2011, 5:55 AM
Sencha Touch version tested:

1.0.1 rev a

Platform tested against:

iOS 3
iOS 4.2
iOS 4.3.1
iOS 4.3.2


With the latest version of Google Maps Api (ver. 3.4), with "sencha-touch.js" just included (no functions actually called), the listener for the 'click' event, added to a google.marker, does not work: it never gets called.
Listeners to other types of event (e.g. 'double click') just work fine.
With older versions of Google Maps Api, i.e. 3.2 o less, the above bug does not reproduce.

Test Case:

<include "sencha-touch.js">
google.maps.event.addListener(gObject, "click", function(e){

See this URL : http://togo.055055.it/static/togo_mini_viewer_v3.4.html (Google Maps API V.3.4 - affected by the problem) and http://togo.055055.it/static/togo_mini_viewer_v3.2.html (Google Maps API V.3.2 - works properly).

Any response?

You state that with the updated Maps it doesn't work so is it really a bug with Sencha Touch?

To the best of our knowledge, yes. At the very least it seems that Sencha and Google Maps v3.4 interact in a way that causes malfunctioning.

This is a bug in the current version of Sencha Touch (1.1).
You can include the following code before your application code to make the on click event to work in Google Maps:

Ext.gesture.Manager.onMouseEventOld = Ext.gesture.Manager.onMouseEvent;
Ext.gesture.Manager.onMouseEvent = function(e) {
var target = e.target;

while (target) {
if (Ext.fly(target) && Ext.fly(target).hasCls('x-map')) {

target = target.parentNode;

this.onMouseEventOld.apply(this, arguments);

This is a temporary fix until Sencha will fix the problem.

Awesome. Fix works! Thanks a lot for sharing.

Please let us know when this fix is implemented in the lib so that I can reduce my ever-growing "fixes.js" :)

Jokes aside, keep up the awesome work Sencha!

When I paste the code fix into my code... the map doesn't load. Any ideas?

Make sure you paste it on the very top of your code. Does it load if you remove his fix?

'mouseup' worked for me without using above fix.
