Unable to bind dataset to map

Unable to bind dataset to map

Hey Guys,

I've been trying all night to get multiple addresses to show up on the google map from a dataset that has been binded into the php file that contains the map, with no success. The addresses will not show up.

I successfully added a static address. But I cannot get the 2nd address from the list to show multiple addresses from a dataset. I clicked the lightning button and added the "Address" value to the Pro Map's "Street Name" and also added the zip code for good measures.

When I do this, the code for the address looks like this:

Street: {ds1::Address}
Zip / Postal Code: {ds1::ZipCode}

the page with the map is:
map.php

the dataset source is:
ds1.html

The PHP page has ds1.html binded properly as a dataset, so I do not know why Google Maps will not show the locations. Please help!!!!!!!!

Thanks,

Thomas

Pro Maps will only be able to retrieve dynamic data from a database using a recordset. It is not compatible with the type of data set you are trying to use.


You should create a MySQL database. In the database add a locations table:
locationID - Primary Key
locationAddress - varchar(45)
locationCity - varchar(45)
locationState - varchar(45)
locationZIP - varchar(45)
locationCountry - varchar(45)

Then add the addresses to the location table.

In Dreamweaver you can create a recordset to retrieve the addresses from the database, then use the recordset in Pro Maps.

The kind of data Map Pro is looking for looks like this

$row_Google_Recordset['business_name']

if you are using PHP.

Thanks!

Thanks. It would of made my life 100x easier if it was comparable with datasets. But I finally figured out MySQL and php.

I hear you. I was doing this all by hand until I discovered that Dreamweaver can do it quickly and with less typos :o
