Apply CSS to the popup | Documentation

It's easy to customize the look and feel of the tooltip/popup. There are two ways this can be done:

  1. Add predefined properties to the main_settings (easy)
    You can change the tooltip's background color, opacity, drop shadow, border radius or font by adding properties to the main_settings in the mapdata.js file. You can learn about these properties by seeing the last table in the main_settings documentation.

    Here is an example of the tooltip customized via the mapdata.js file:

  2. Turn off the map's CSS and use your own (gives you more control)

    The tooltip is composed of a few different divs as illustrated in this picture:

    Note that some of these divs only exist when the map is in on_click mode. Also, note the use of CSS classes instead of ids. This is new in version 3.4.

    These divs are styled by CSS that is embedded into the webpage when the map loads. This CSS looks something like this:

    <style type="text/css">
      .tt_sm{border-radius: 5px;box-shadow: 3px 3px 4px rgba(0,0,0,.5); z-index: 1000000;   background-color: white;   padding: 7px; opacity:0.9; font: 12px/1.5 Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: black;} 
      .tt_name_sm{float: left; font-weight: bold} 
      .xmark_sm{float: right; margin-left: 5px; cursor: pointer; line-height: 0px;}  
      .tt_mobile_sm{margin-top: 5px;} 
      .btn_simplemaps{color: black;text-decoration: none;background: #ffffff;display: inline-block;padding: 5px 5px;margin: 0; width: 100%; -webkit-box-sizing: border-box; -moz-box-sizing: border-box; box-sizing: border-box; line-height: 1.43;text-align: center;white-space: nowrap;vertical-align: middle;-ms-touch-action: manipulation;touch-action: manipulation;cursor: pointer;-webkit-user-select: none;-moz-user-select: none;-ms-user-select: none;user-select: none;border: 1px solid;border-radius: 4px;}   
      .btn_simplemaps:hover{text-decoration: underline;}

    (You can see these styles by inspecting the elements on the page after it has loaded with a tool such as Chrome Developer Tools.)

    To customize this CSS, you first need to keep the map from generating the CSS automatically. This is done by adding: popup_nocss: 'yes', to the main_settings of the mapdata.js file.

    Then, you can copy the styles from above, customize them as you see fit, and paste them into the page where you have embedded the map.
