Custom Image Marker Plugin For jQuery - imagePointer.js

imagePointer.js is a jQuery plugin which allows to use arbitrary elements as markers in your images. Supports multiple markers in an image.

How to use it:

1. By default, the plugin uses Font Awesome icons as image marks.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="font-awesome.min.css">

2. Insert your image as a background into a container.

<div class="mainContainer"></div>
  background-image: url("1.png");

3. Include jQuery library and the jQuery imagePointer.js plugin when needed.

<script src="/path/to/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/jquery.imagePointer.js"></script>

4. Call the function on the container you created.


5. Style the image marker.

.pointerElm {
  position: absolute;
  z-index: 100;
  width : 30px;
  height: 44px;

.CCImgPointer { color : royalblue; }

.CCDragElement {
  background-color: #ccc;
  border: 1px solid black;
  opacity: 0.2;
  position: absolute;
  z-index: 99;

6. Config the image marker.

  "cursor"             : 'crosshair',
  "multi"              : true,
  "pointerHTML"        : '<div class="fa fa-map-marker fa-3x pointerElm"></div>',
  "pointerClass"       : 'CCImgPointer',
  "mouseOverHTML"      : '<div class="fa fa-map-marker fa-3x pointerElm"></div>',
  "mouseOverClass"     : 'CCMouseOver',
  "removeClass"        : 'CCRemovePointer',
  "strictBorder"       : false,
  "disable"            : false,
  "destroyMouseOut"    : true,
  "areaSelection"      : true,
  "pointerArray"       : [{'top' : 100, 'left' : 200}],

7. Convert and output the image marker information to a JSON string.

  pointerCallBack : function(pointerInfo){
