Pro Maps API V3 Problem

Pro Maps API V3 Problem

I'm trying to update a Pro Maps to V3 of the API. Using Design Extender 1.09.

When I include directions, the location pin and info window for the map does not display. Firebug reports that map1 is undefined. When I leave the directions box unchecked, the pin and info window display properly,

Directions don't work when I include directions -- the starting address data is passed to the posted page in the URL, and Firebug reports that map1 is undefined.

Files (page & google_javascript folder) are attached.

cincinati_apiv3.php is the page where directions is left unchecked, and cincinati_apiv3_2.php is the page where directions is checked.

Thanks. . .

Mike

Hi Dave:

First -- what code did you change, and what did you change it to?

Second -- what if I'm creating a new map, starting clean with no existing references to Google Maps or WA code??

I dont see any old Google Map code on your page, but the links you provide don't seam to work.

Can you give correct links so i can investigate the problem.

one thing that may be causing the issue is using "directions" as the form name, try using a different name for the form.
<form action="cincinnati_apiv3_2.php" method="get" name="directions">

also try changing the id of the "address" div:
<div id="address">

Oops.

cincinnati_apiv3.php and cincinnati_apiv3_2.php

Pretty bad when I misspell my home town. . .

Will try your suggestions and reply back.

ETA: No joy changing the div id or form name. . .

This is caused by a bug in the map code when using more than one map in your site, i have logged this in our system to be corrected in the next update.

to correct the problem, for now, find the following code in the webassist/google_javascript/wagmp_map_2.php file:

directionsDisplay.setMap(map1);
directionsDisplay.setPanel(document.getElementById("wagmp_directions_1"));



and change it to:

directionsDisplay.setMap(map2);
directionsDisplay.setPanel(document.getElementById("wagmp_directions_2"));




to fix the issue with the markers not showing, find each instance of:

MarkerImage('google_javascript/



and change it to:

MarkerImage('webassist/google_javascript/

A rumpas is a noisy disturbance, according to dictionary.com:
rumpus

When made king of the Wild Things, Max cries "Let the wild rumpas start!"

That's what I thought -- but I didn't want to assume. .

New Issue

The markers now show.

However the map now displays with the default start point (somewhere in Kansas) instead of the default address showing at the center of a more local map, and the directions to the address from that point.

cincinnati_apiv3_2.php

Also cannot edit the map -- I get a "pathtoURL" error, which I presume comes from the change in paths to the markers.

Thanks. . .
