select and copy the contents from the pushpin infobox RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to select and copy  the contents from the pushpin infobox. It is htmlContent. But I am unable to select or copy it. Sample code for pushpin with html content.

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
      <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
      <script type="text/javascript">
       var map = null; 
       var pinInfobox = null;  
       function GetMap()
       // Initialize the map
       map = new Microsoft.Maps.Map(document.getElementById("myMap"), {credentials:"key"}); 
       // Retrieve the location of the map center 
       var center = map.getCenter();
       // Add a pin to the center of the map
       var pin = new Microsoft.Maps.Pushpin(center); 
    			Microsoft.Maps.Events.addHandler(pin, 'mouseover', displayInfobox);
    			Microsoft.Maps.Events.addHandler(map, 'viewchange', hideInfobox);
    			var infoboxOptions = {
    				showCloseButton: true,
    				zIndex: 0,
    				offset: new Microsoft.Maps.Point(10, 60),
    				htmlContent: "<div style='background-color:White;padding:8px;font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica;width:300px;border-style:solid;border-width:1px;height:auto;border-color:black;font-size:12px;'><b>Custom HTML for selecting and coping the contents.</b></div>;"
    			pinInfobox = new Microsoft.Maps.Infobox(center, infoboxOptions);
       function displayInfobox(e)
       pinInfobox.setOptions({ visible:true });
       function hideInfobox(e)
       pinInfobox.setOptions({ visible: false });
     <body onload="GetMap();">
      <div id='myMap' style="position:relative; width:700px; height:800px;"></div>  


    Even if showPointer: true, is added, then too i I am not able to copy.

  • Thanks for reporting. i think right now no way to select the text in the Infobox. we would see if this feature could be added in next releases.
