Text for markers in a map


I have a map with several markers. I want to display a text for each marker at all times. Right now I only know how to show the text “on hover” because I use tooltip.

I cannot find any simple solutions for showing text for each marker at all time. Do you have any simple solutions?

@rhys @kristian @Shahitha do you know how to solve this? :slight_smile:


Thank you for posting to the community, and apologies for the delayed response.

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like we have any in-built ways to show a marker label at all times, we only have the tooltip or popup text functionality shown in the screenshot.

This has been submitted as a new feature request internally.

Perhaps not the prettiest way to do it, but it works. :slight_smile: You can use a service like https://placehold.co to generate images on the fly. These can in turn be loaded into runtime file objects and used on the map. Remember to allow https://placehold.co under Environments → Web Request Targets

Just an idea. There might even be a way to create these images on the fly in Appfarm?
