I know I did translucent overlays on past projects but I forget if I just layered them over top the map or embedded them in the map. I tried making map pins load my popups and it loads them but it puts a bubble behind my popup which defeats the purpose of having a translucent background.
I realize I could put a script in the "onMarkerClick" event to send a message to make a popup appear but I'm looking for a more elegant and/or embedded solution. I was able to open a popup in onMarkerClick with the correct parameters for the pin but it had the bubble behind it also so it was a less elegant way to do what markers can do.
It just occurred to me that I could pull it off with a hideous kludge by embedding a view for each pin point and toggling visibility to show them when the user clicks the corresponding map pin. I don't want to do it that way either.
