Every Marker Type can have a unique Icon associated with it, specified as either:

  • Text – plain alpha-numeric characters. Remember space is very limited! Text will be displayed in the chosen colour.
  • Font – Choose from a list of Ion Icons or Font Awesome icons by providing the relevant class name, such as “ion-alert” or “fa-bolt”. The icon will be displayed in the chosen colour.
  • HTML – Supports custom HTML content, these can be simple HTML characters (e.g. “★”), Unicode symbols (e.g. “⚡”) or more complicated structures. For example you can use this option to specify custom images like so:
<img src="" style="width:24px;height:24px;margin-top:5px" />

Where the URL points to your desired image. You can adjust the width, height and vertical offset by modifying the style properties as desired. You can see an example of this here.
