Use Google Maps With A Draggable Marker Which Posts The Lat - Lon When Dropped On A Position
Jul 21, 2011
I am designing a site where users can submit a location. I want to use Google Maps with a draggable marker which posts the lat, lon when dropped on a position. I was wondering if anyone knows of a tutorial or could point me in the direction of anything similar.
I have the code below but for some reason it only works when adding the marker to the map (map click). When I drag the marker around, the coordinates and closest address don't update.
This code works if I add the marker straight in the initialize() function but not when I add it within the addListenerOnce for map click event. I want to be able to add 1 marker to the map, and update its address and coordinates when dragging the marker around.
how can I get my custom markers to show? I have got my code in place, everything works except, doesn't show my custom marker?!
Right I have google maps connected to a database which holds stockists and their information. The user enters their postcode and radius and markers are put on the map of stockists in the radius of their postcode. I have this all working fine and the database chucks the information into an xml file fine. The problem im having is displaying the information in the pop up window of the marker.
The only information displayed in the sidebar entry is the name and distance and on the marker just the name.
I'm trying to update the location of a marker in a Google Maps API. The only problem is that the marker won't update (only if i update the whole initialize() function with a setTimeout function).
It goes about the following code:
What i want is that the marker updates automatically (with AJAX) and not the whole map. First of al i thought i push the code that set's te marker in a function, and reload that every 4 seconds. But that doesn't work.
I'm using the goMap Google Maps plugin very successfully (and I highly recommend it) - except that I can't seem to set shadows on my map markers. There appears to be support for this in the plugin source code - but there's no documentation I can find.
Anyone got an clues on how to do this? This is a simplified version of the code I'm trying to use. I have checked the obvious/stupid things - file path is correct (the image isn't 404ing in firebug), and there's no js errors being thrown, or any other warnings reported.
I want to know if this can be done using jQuery and Google Maps. In my website I have a Google map where users could add new markers with a description on it and the marker they put would be permanent on my map, meaning if they comeback they would still see the markers they added.
I also want the feature that they could just drag and drop the marker, so it would be easy to the users. What would be my approach and how would I do it?
I am a total newbie and am trying to get a google maps type draggable div working for this site www.bingbangbosh.ie. Wondering is it possible to have the div set to a certain width, then when dragged the larger image within the div is dragged around until the cursor meets the edge of the div. would it also be possible to contain this draggable div to a larger div so that it would not be possible for it to disappear off the visible 'window'.[URL]..
Hopefully a really quick question. I'm a JS novice, and am looking for a way to output the coordinates of a Google maps marker into the value of two text fields, one for latitude and one for longitude.The code below is a simple location search which returns a result with a draggable marker. Currently, the coordinates in both text fields update when the location search is performed, but not when the marker is dragged to a new location afterwards.
With the method "getLinks()" in streetview I can get linked streets of the current panorama. The data includes streetname, direction and panorama IDs of the next panoramas. But I need the position latlng. How can I get the position to these IDs?. I want to calculate all distances to next panoramas. Calculation is no problem.
I want to add a google map(with street view) in my site. I use this code. when I clicked the point on the map, it can change the street view to this part and show the click point information. But how to add a Red balloons marker in the click point? Then I click in the other point, the first Red balloons marker will move to the new point.( just click for move the marker, not drag the marker)

I'm not sure where I have translated this incorrectly. I have one google map embedded on my page which works fine. But I wanted to add a second one. I thought the easiest way to do this would be to have a second page which is called later on with all the details on it for the second map. However although I think (this I presume is where I went wrong) I have replicated the instructions correctly the place holder for the second map just remains blank.
This is the code for my called page with the instructions for the second map:
And this is the script of the main page, just in case I would be better off keeping them both in one place.
I've cut out the script that doesn't relate to this so I hope I haven't missed anything important.
I am trying to add markers to Google Maps, they are working fine but some of the markers are of same location, thus Google Map will show only one marker for them. Is it possible to show all markers no matter if they are of same location.
