I am using OpenLayers 3 to build a 'spy glass' map, with an old map selectively visible over an OSM layer. The spy glass element follows the mouse around the map to reveal the old map.
I'm now trying to get the spy glass to sit at the center of the map when the page first loads, and then follow the mouse when it enters the map area. Besides looking a lot nicer and making the purpose of the map more obvious, it's a great solution for mobile usage, as in the absence of mouse input the spy glass then stays in the center and the map can be rotated around it.
I've been able to shift the default placement of the spy glass onto the map though setting pixel values
var mousePosition = [300,300];
but haven't succeeded in finding a way to calculate the center and pass it to the function. I've tried some functions, including the current combination of
var center = map.getView().getCenter(); var pixel = map.getPixelFromCoordinate(center); var mousePosition = pixel;
but with no effect.
The following JSFiddle has the full code: http://jsfiddle.net/o3px0u8y/1/
How can I set the spy glass to first load in the center of the map?
