Want to add zoom controls to Android MapView? We can achieve this by calling
MapView map = (MapView)findViewById(R.id.mapview); map.setBuiltInZoomControls(true);
The above code snippet will add the zoom controls to the bottom-center of the
MapView. The zoom controls only show up when you touch the screen, so you have to make sure that the map is clickable.
<com.google.android.maps.MapView android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="fill_parent" android:id="@+id/mapview" android:clickable="true" android:apiKey="your key"> </com.google.android.maps.MapView>
