How can i add a disclosure button to a MKAnnotation?

I want to add a disclosure button to a MKAnnotation to segue to another view.

The button should look like this one:


Here's my .h and .m files.

.h file
//  POI.h

#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>
#import <MapKit/MapKit.h>

@interface POI : NSObject <MKAnnotation> {

    NSString *title;
    NSString *subtitle;
    CLLocationCoordinate2D coordinate;

@property (nonatomic, copy) NSString *title;
@property (nonatomic, copy) NSString *subtitle;
@property (nonatomic, assign) CLLocationCoordinate2D coordinate;

- (id)initWithCoordinate:(CLLocationCoordinate2D)_coordinate title:(NSString *)_titolo andSubTitle:(NSString *)_sottotitolo;


.m file
//  POI.m

#import "POI.h"

@implementation POI

@synthesize title, subtitle, coordinate;
-(id)initWithCoordinate:(CLLocationCoordinate2D)_coordinate title:(NSString *)_titolo andSubTitle:(NSString *)_sottotitolo {

    [self setTitle:_titolo];
    [self setSubtitle:_sottotitolo];
    [self setCoordinate:_coordinate];

    return self;


in my ViewController i call this using:

  pinLocation.latitude = 4.8874;
    pinLocation.longitude = 1.400;
    POI *poi = [[POI alloc] initWithCoordinate:pinLocation title:@"foo" andSubTitle:@"bar"];
    [_mapView addAnnotation:poi];


Three steps.

1) In your header file (.h) or your implementation file's (.m) class extension conform to MKMapViewDelegate:

@interface ViewController : UIViewController <MKMapViewDelegate> { ... } 

2) Set your view controller as the delegate of MKMapViewDelegate to receive delegate callbacks. Commonly done in viewDidLoad:

- (void)viewDidLoad
    [super viewDidLoad];

    self.mapView.delegate = self;

3) Implement the following delegate function to show the disclosure button:

- (MKAnnotationView *) mapView:(MKMapView *)mapView viewForAnnotation:(id <MKAnnotation>) annotation
    MKPinAnnotationView *newAnnotation = [[MKPinAnnotationView alloc]     initWithAnnotation:annotation reuseIdentifier:@"pinLocation"];

    newAnnotation.canShowCallout = YES;
    newAnnotation.rightCalloutAccessoryView = [UIButton buttonWithType:UIButtonTypeDetailDisclosure];

    return newAnnotation;

the following function will assist in determining what action (in your case, presenting a view) is taken upon touching the disclosure button.

- (void)mapView:(MKMapView *)mapView annotationView:(MKAnnotationView *)view calloutAccessoryControlTapped:(UIControl *)control
    //launch a new view upon touching the disclosure indicator
    TestVCViewController *tvc = [[TestVCViewController alloc] initWithNibName:@"TestVCViewController" bundle:nil];
    [self presentViewController:tvc animated:YES completion:nil];
