[MOD-2322] iOS/Android: Add mapclick event to MapView in Ti.Map Module

Tapping on a map to create points of interest seems like a fairly common use-case. The current module explicitly states that the MapView click event is fired for annotations, shapes etc. and not the view itself. I have added a new mapclick event to the ios implementation in our branch of the module. Wondering if someone can chime in with an android implementation?


  1. Hans Knöchel 2017-01-25 Interesting feature request, I'd agree to have this included. Can you do a PR on the ti.map module and link the PR here - together with a quick demo-code (single app.js) to demonstrate the behavior? Then we can help doing the docs and further adjustments. Thx! :-) Moving to MOD
  2. Sharif AbuDarda 2017-02-20 Hello [~nickkemp], Can you go ahead and create the PR and a demo code? Thanks.

       var MapModule = require('ti.map');
       var win = Ti.UI.createWindow({
           title: "Ti.Map",
           includeOpaqueBars: true,
           extendEdges: [Ti.UI.EXTEND_EDGE_ALL]
       var nav = Ti.UI.iOS.createNavigationWindow({
           window: win
       var mapView = MapModule.createView({
           userLocation: false,
           mapType: MapModule.NORMAL_TYPE,
           rotatesEnabled: true,
           animate: true,
           region: { 
               latitude: -37.7870, 
               longitude: 175.2793,
               latitudeDelta: 0.1,
               longitudeDelta: 0.1
           // height: '50%',
           width: Ti.UI.FILL,  
       function handlMapClick(e) {
           Ti.API.warn("\"mapclick\" event fired!");
       mapView.addEventListener("mapclick", handlMapClick);
  4. Hans Knöchel 2017-05-24 [~nickkemp] I merged iOS, but forgot about Android. Can you provide the parity-PR for it?
  5. Nick Kemp 2017-05-24 sorry don't have the tooling atm - on a totally different project - I've put a request out on TiSlack. Would be good to keep the momentum. Thanks Hans.
