Add a polygon

The map.addPolygon() method takes a single polygon options object literal, specifying the initial properties of the polygon.

The following fields are available when constructing a polygon:

Field Name Type Description
points Array.LatLng The array of LatLng position.
geodesic Boolean Indicates whether the segments of the polygon should be drawn as geodesics, as opposed to straight lines on the Mercator projection.
strokeColor String Specify the border color of the polygon. You can specify the HTML colors
strokeWidth Number The width of border.
fillColor String Specify the inside color of the polygon. You can specify the HTML colors
visible Boolean Set false if you want to hide. (Default: true)
zIndex Number Specify the zIndex. (Default: 2)
addHole Array.LatLng The array of LatLng position (currently only Android, iOS coming soon)
document.addEventListener("deviceready", function() {
  var mapDiv = document.getElementById("map_canvas");
  var map = plugin.google.maps.Map.getMap(mapDiv);

  map.addEventListener(plugin.google.maps.event.MAP_READY, function() {

    const GORYOKAKU_POINTS = [
      new plugin.google.maps.LatLng(41.79883, 140.75675),
      new plugin.google.maps.LatLng(41.799240000000005, 140.75875000000002),
      new plugin.google.maps.LatLng(41.797650000000004, 140.75905),
      new plugin.google.maps.LatLng(41.79637, 140.76018000000002),
      new plugin.google.maps.LatLng(41.79567, 140.75845),
      new plugin.google.maps.LatLng(41.794470000000004, 140.75714000000002),

      new plugin.google.maps.LatLng(41.79909000000001, 140.75465),

      'points': GORYOKAKU_POINTS,
      'strokeColor' : '#AA00FF',
      'strokeWidth': 5,
      'fillColor' : '#880000'
    }, function(polygon) {
        'target': polygon.getPoints()




The map.addPolygon() method takes a callback function as the second argument. The callback function is involved when the polygon is created on the map. You can get the instance of the polygon from the argument of the callback function.

  'strokeColor' : '#AA00FF',
  'strokeWidth': 5,
  'fillColor' : '#880000'
}, function(polygon) {

  setTimeout(function() {
  }, 3000);

Remove the polygon

To remove a polygon from the map, call the remove() method.


Click Event

As of version1.1.4, you can listen the click event using OVERLAY_CLICK event.

  'strokeColor' : '#AA00FF',
  'strokeWidth': 5,
  'fillColor' : '#880000'
}, function(polygon) {

  polygon.on(plugin.google.maps.event.OVERLAY_CLICK, function(overlay, latLng) {
