Google Maps Module settings

0
I have to display google maps based on the postcode value in my application. I have downloaded the Google Maps module from the app store and used the add-on in the web form. Have configured the listen to grid functionality too but i end up getting the default (Ridley AgriProducts) when i run my application. Can you please help me with the settings that i will have to make in the application domain model or any other configuration changes needs to be made for Google Maps to work. Thanks in advance.

There are two steps then for right implementation:

  • Geocode the zipcode attribute of your entity, using the Microflow or Java-action, contained in the Google Maps module;

The easiest way to do this is to use the Location entity of the Google Maps module. You have to create a Location object, with as address attribute your zipcode

  • Display you zipcode via a marker in Google Maps;

For the right marker to appear, you need to give the Google Maps widget a XPath constraint to the entity you are clicking on in your datagrid. In my application I have an AddressData entity which holds all the address information and is the source of my datagrid. My XPath constraint is:

[GoogleMaps.Location_AddressData/Register.AddressData/id = '[%CurrentObject%]']

Off course, this association 'Location_AddressData' needs to exist in your domain model.

Hope this helps!
