There are too many question on this issue, but unfortunately I couldn't get the solution. I have the following settings,

var geographic = new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:4326"); // WGS 1984
var mercator = new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:900913"); // Spherical Mercator Projection
var myExtent = new OpenLayers.Bounds(60, 23, 79, 37).transform(geographic, mercator);

map : {
        title : "Map",
        projection : mercator,
        displayProjection: geographic,
        extent: myExtent,
        restrictedExtent: myExtent,

The problem is that it zooms to the wrong location, secondly the pan is also not available.


Use this map, perhaps resolve your problem:

    map = new OpenLayers.Map({div:'map', allOverlays:true,
    projection: "EPSG:900913",
    maxExtent:new OpenLayers.Bounds(-20037508.34, -20037508.34, 20037508.34, 20037508.34),
    displayProjection:new OpenLayers.Projection("EPSG:4326"),
    units: "m",
    numZoomLevels: 24,'sphericalMercator': true
// for panning and zooming:
pan=new OpenLayers.Control.PanZoom();



If the problem is not resolved, We must use another method.

  • Thanks for your response, previously var myExtent = new OpenLayers.Bounds(60, 23, 79, 37).transform(geographic, mercator); was returning bounds + center, when I used directly restrictedExtent : [6144368.4360405, 2724576.0254419, 9236093.3556889, 4446549.3984107], my problem was solved.
