No one knows how yahoo maps is getting the callout component to display on their maps?
Well after much searching (both the internet and my soul), I decided to implement this myself. I extended Marker instead of Overlay, which is really what I wanted in the first place. Take a look and let me know what you think:
Here is the source as a Flex Archive if you want to use it yourself: http://utopiaprogramming.com/previews/calloutMarkerDemonstration.zip
Hi, i also did an Example with a map, but i did it with Google maps. soon i will put the source.
if you want to check it out me post is http://developyourdream.blogspot.com/2009/04/flex-google-maps-tags-y-menu.html
I like the example, but when I do mouse over the double-up-arrow (presumably to get more detail about the marker) I get the error
ArgumentError: Error #2025: The supplied DisplayObject must be a child of the caller.

Since this is the first time of trying I presume that the increased area bit is not yet a child?
