Simple map for iOS


This sample shows how to build a simple mapping application using the compact build for the iOS. The iOS is the operating system for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. In this sample, the viewport meta tag is used to configure the scale of the viewport. The snippet below sets the initial scale to 1.0, if you do this without specifying a width Safari will use the device-width in portrait and the device-height when in landscape orientation.

<meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no" />

In some cases, you may want to change the layout of your application depending on the orientation of the device. When the iPhone orientation changes the onorientationchange event is fired. Add a handler for this event by adding the following to the HTML body element.

<body onorientationchange="orientationChanged();" onresize="resizeHandler();">

For more details on building web applications for the iPhone operating system view the Safari Reference Library.
