Getting map to automatically center on all points

I would like the map to automatically set the proper zoom and center to show all points displayed on my map. I've been trying to search the web but cant seem to figure it out...

See the "How to set the Zoom Level" tutorial in the how to section of the Pro Maps For Google support page:

This will set the zoom for you, it will automatically center on the last address that it draws.

Centering Map to view all the points

What you can do is set an invisible point that is in the middle of all the visible points and the map will center on it and then adjust the zoom level to view all the visible points.

To set the default invisible center point open your wagmp_map_1.php and find the line map.setCenter(point, 13); and change it to map.setCenter(new GLatLng(X, Y), 13); where X represents your invisible center point's latitude and Y longitude.

Please note that that there are 3 instances of this line in your map file so change all three of them. Hope this helps.

Also see the above post how to adjust the zoom level.

This feature should really be available in the Pro Maps wizard along with the zoom levels so that no coding is required to adjust them. Hopefully in the next version soon.
