We hooked up a bunch of CSS classes to all your Info Windows so you can easily understand all the parts that compose them. They are:


Google Maps Info Window container

Below are the CSS properties used by Google Maps for styling the Info Window container that you can overwrite to match your brand:

background-color: white;
border-radius: 8px;
box-shadow: 0 2px 7px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);
font-size: 13px;
font-weight: 300;
padding: 12px;


Google Maps Info Window content wrapper

This is a <div> container that Google Maps adds to Info Windows but it doesn’t have any predefined styling. You can use your own CSS if you want though.


Google Maps Info Window close button

Some default properties that you can alter:

background-position: center;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-size: 10px 10px;
border: none;
width: 16px;
height: 16px;
top: 5px;
right: 5px;

If your customizations can’t be applied, please try using the !important keyword to force your styling.

Important: To replace the close button icon you have to set its background-image property using base64 encoded data URI. For more information read this blog post about data URIs.

This pseudo-element is used to display the small triangle/anchor below the popup and at the top of the map pin. You can change its background, shadow effects, width/height and positioning.
