How to link to map location

How to link to map location

With the previous version of Pro Maps you supplied instructions for linking to a specific map location. Such as...

  <a href="#" onClick="wagmp_map_1_obj.getPointByAddress ('8899 University Center Ln').marker.openInfoWindowHtml (wagmp_map_1_obj.getPointByAddress('8899 University Center Ln').address.infowindowtext);">8899 University Center Ln </a>  


I could not get this to work with Pro Maps in WADE 1.0.1.

Is there a way to do this with 1.0.1?

Thanks,
Dennis

I just tried and it appears there are a couple of things that changed in v3 that prevent the current code from working.

I'll make a few updates and get out a fix for this issue in the next week to allow this to be added again.

The new syntax will be:
onclick="wagmp_map_1_obj.openWindowByAddress('8899 University Center Ln');"

We are working on a couple of other issues reported, so we should have a build out within a week.

Thanks and a couple questions

The map links are working now with DE 1.0.2 (thanks).

One issue when multiple links are available, when subsequent links are clicked, the previous info windows remain displayed. It doesn’t take many links/clicks to clutter the map with info windows. Is there a way to have the previous info window close when a new link is clicked. This is the way the original Pro Maps worked.

Using a recordset, can I intermix using addresses and coordinates? I have one location that Google Maps doesn’t like the address. I tried entering the coordinates in the street address column, but the location is not displayed.

Also using a recordset, is there a way to define custom marker images.

For reference here is my map page: 2012_National.php#map

Thanks,
Dennis

I'll update the next version to automatically close info windows.

To update your current code you would have to change the include file wagmp_map_1.php

update the function:

function openWindowByAddressFunc(value,attname)  {
var point = this.getPointByAddress(value,attname);
point.infowindow.open(this.obj,point.marker);
}


to:

function openWindowByAddressFunc(value,attname)  {
var point = this.getPointByAddress(value,attname);
for (var x=0; x < this.infowindows.length; x++) {
this.infowindows[x].close();
}
point.infowindow.open(this.obj,point.marker);
}



and then you would have to update in the addMarker function:

google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', function() {
infowindow.open(map1,marker);



to:

google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', function() {
for (var x=0; x < wagmp_map_1_obj.infowindows.length; x++) {
wagmp_map_1_obj.infowindows[x].close();
}
infowindow.open(map1,marker);



Custom markers from the database isn't directly supported, but can be done by hand coding. Just update the code where the info window images are specified to be dynamic. There is no way to do that through the ui directly currently.

custom markers

In the old version of Pro Maps (Before design extender) I was able to add mine own custom graphic markers and if need be alter their sizes within the wagmp_map file and enter their dimensions with the Gsize option. In Designer Extender this part of the code is now missing.

How would I go about adding this part of the code back into the new version wagmp_map file so that custom markers will show and at their correct dimensions?

in the map js file, the code to generate the icon images will look like this:

image: new google.maps.MarkerImage('plugins/webassist/google_javascript/images/traditionalflat_pacifica.png', new google.maps.Size(34,35), new google.maps.Point(0,0), new google.maps.Point(9,33)),




you can edit that to point to your custom images.
