    Hi!

    Is it possible to create an overlay button on GMaps? This overlay button should start another app.

    Procedure: First I want to start GMaps, then the b4a micro program with the overlay button (this micro program consists only of the overlay button). When I press the overlay button another app should be started. I hope it is clear.

    If I understand well you want to lauch the GoogleMaps program from your device and the start the B4A Program with the button ?
    This you cannot do.
    You can add a GoogleMap object in your program and add a button over it.

    No. This button has nothing to do with GMaps. It is only used for starting comfortably and quick another program which I need for my travel too.

    this is difficult to say without additional information about your project. Is it a webview with a html based google map or is it android google map?

    I want to start the original GMaps app, then my small program with the overlay button.
    There are programs which run in the background and you can overlay only a widget or sth. similar in the foreground of another program which is active at the moment.

    I think in this case you are no more able to control the functions of the GMaps app.
