How to show a balloon above a marker in a MapActivity? Isn't there a widget?
I dont get the point, why I have to code so much for it. Like, I dont want to care about...
- the position of the balloon (I just want to assign a geopoint)
- the layout of a basic balloon (Later on I might want to implement a xml based layout)
- the number of shown balloons (only display one at a time)
- the open/close behaviour of the balloon (close, when an other bollon is tabbed)
Solved it! See my answer below...
Here is the "the missing widget"...
