Google map not showing

Google map not showing

I bought a few days ago "Pro Maps For Google".
I test the extension by creating a simple page and it works great.
After that I try to implement the code in my site wich is made with include files (header and footer are include).
I copy accordingly the code from header and footer and paste it into my include pages (header, footer and detail page).

After this I went to my detail page where the map should be appear but I can not see the map,
I only see a white space having width: 600px and height: 300px; (as I set the dimension) but not the map.

The test was made local on my server (localhost).

How is it possible to do without creating an other connect file to my data base (wich already exist)
and construct an other SELECT to obtain the name of the street wich I already have on my page.


My second question is if is possible to insert in my site a search street cassete made with the help of "Pro Maps For Google"
so when people whant to find the location of a street to type the name street in search form and then they can see the street location
in Google Map.

If you run into issues only after adding your included files, this shows that there is some sort of conflict with the included files. Do you have a link to the page or is it still only on a local server?

As for making a map that users can search for addresses, this is possible. You will have to create a form that contains one form field for each value needed to map a location (street, state, zip, etc). Then you would bind the form fields in the Pro Maps wizard to the correct values.

I have also the site online but I want to try it first on my localhost.
So how do I solve the problem ?

One more question

If you see on this page they have an extra option; you can see the live panorama.
Can we do it with "Pro Maps for Google" ?

If you could send me the link to a page that contains your map so I can take a look at it, that would be helpful. Its difficult to speculate what could be causing an issue without seeing the page first.

As for the extra option, I assume you mean having the satellite view and Hybrid views as well, is that correct? On step 4 of 5 in the wizard, if you select the Map Type check box, those buttons will be added.

I Solve the probleme

You where right there was a conflict with my include files. Now is online and works great, but there are cases when it is not show exactly, and for that address I made a check on other online maps services and I find the address. Here is an example ZqsP.
Is not possible if the address is not find not to show the map and confuse the visitors, because every time a street is not find the map show me the same address (Calarasilor).

And an other probleme I can see the pin.

Regarding the extra option I was refering at the posibility to see panorama from the place.
Instead of pin there is a house and if you click on it you will have a panoramic view of the place.

Thank You

You don't want to see the pin? If you remove the image for the pin, it shouldn't show up.

Do you have a default location specified for the map? The default location may be what is showing up when the location is not found.

The option isn't built in to Pro Maps, but you can take a look at this thread:

Scuse me, by pin I was refering at "Address Marker";
Here you can see an example dCy3
The Address Marker is not show.

No I do not have a default location specified for the map, I think he have autochose.

Sorry, I was confused, since you said you can see the pin and that was the problem. The reason the pin isn't showing up is because the image that it is referencing has not been uploaded to the server.

Make sure the google_javascript/images/ directory and its contents are uploaded to the server.

I'm not sure what you mean by autochoose. Are you getting the values from a recordset? Are the values valid addresses that are being passed to the map?
