Smooth Navigation II (Google Style)

March 12th, 2008 by Tim Schaub · 1 Comment

If you’ve considered using the Google Layer in OpenLayers but decided against it because of that annoying flicker and weirdly jerky and sluggish drag-panning, have another look. Google started exporting a getDragObject in version 2.93. This was exactly what we needed, and it let us ditch the obfuscated non-API methods that we were relying on for getting around the flicker (we only had a workaround for version 2.82).

So now, in addition to nice animated panning and smooth zoom transitions, if you’re a Google Layer user, you get flicker free panning.
