Show info window on mouse hover


This sample shows how you can display an InfoWindow when the user hovers the mouse over a feature. In this sample, the feature is the result of a QueryTask that queries USA states. The user follows this workflow:

  1. User clicks a feature
  2. The feature is "highlighted" using a graphic.
  3. User hovers the mouse over the graphic to see an InfoWindow with attribute information.

If you want to hover the mouse over any feature and see an InfoWindow, see the sample Load query results, show on hover.

The following event listener formats and shows the InfoWindow when the user moves the mouse over the feature:

dojo.connect(map.graphics, "onMouseMove", function(evt) {
var g = evt.graphic;

An additional listener is necessary to hide the window once the user moves the mouse off the feature:

dojo.connect(map.graphics, "onMouseOut", function() {map.infoWindow.hide();} );
