Zum deutschen Handbuch wechseln NPGeoMap

Version 2.50.84, 07.12.2017

This Menu Bar is an alternative to the Touchscreen Menu, with the same range of functions. Only if a mobile device is detected, the Touchscreen Menu appears and the Menu Bar will hide.

Feature Description:

Clicking this button opens the print window of the Internet Explorer*. Printed will be the current view - including all items on the map like Marker, Maps or Spheres and their labels.


Here the print preview window of the Internet Explorer* will be opened, showing the current view in the way it would be printed.
To proceed with printing click on 000_IE_settings in the upper right corner and choose "print". If then "page setup" is chosen, the size and format of the printout can be configured.


The Zoom button contains a context menu with three different options:

The Quick Zoom Menü (disabled by default)

If activated, it allows to switch to predefined zoom positions on the map with one click.
Example: In the NPGeoMap properties the map section "New York" is set and now will appear in the context menu of the Zoom button. If clicked, the view in the object will shift to the defined position. (see screenshot on the right)

The  Zoom Lock  button freezes the current zoom level. If now selections are made, the zoom level wont change automatically anymore. It is still possible to zoom manually.
If clicked, the button changes to  Zoom Unlock . Another click will lift the block and unlocks the zoom level again.


NPGeoMap pans and zooms in an intelligent way every time a selection is made, to make sure the view is always optimal. Of course it's possible to zoom and pan manually. With the  Zoom Home  button the map section shifts back to the last automatically generated position and zoom level.


If this button is active (blue) the view on the map is "locked" - that means the map section doesn't change automatically, like it would when selections are made. Panning and zooming the map manually is still possible.


This button only appears, if the set Sphere mode is activated in the NPGeoMap properties of the object. It allows to set Spheres (Circles), Pins (markings) or Isochrones (travel surroundings in time or distance) by clicking somewhere on the map and further use them as a selection or analysis tool.
The placed Spheres must be confirmed with another tap/click on this button to proceed.
As soon as the first item is set, a context menu is enabled to delete them again in reverse order.
Additionally to this segment in the Menu Bar, a separate "Radial Spheres Menu" appears:
