    Lightbulb Google Maps anyone?

    Hi,

    I put together a basic Google Maps custom component (real one, not using cWebHtmlBox). Is that useful to anyone?

    Demo here: https://www.kruse-net.dk/googlemaps/

    Full source and instructions here: https://github.com/jkruse/googlemaps-dataflex

    MIT licensed, so free for everyone and everything.

    Besides better documentation, what would you like to see added?

    Jakob,

    Nice job! Just did a quick look around but I'm sure that other developers will find this very useful. Perhaps i could convince you to write up a blog about it...

    I may missing something

    testing this now on my iPhone. Nothing happens when buttons are clicked.

    The only one that has some king of effect is the “zoom to GPS” witch triggers the OS asking me if I want to share my location. But after answering Yes, nothing happens again

    regards

    Ah yes. Although the demo uses the mobile style, it has not at all been tweaked for mobile use yet. Try it on a bigger screen for now

    What happens on your iPhone is that the buttons take up so much space that the map collapses to a black line at the top. Will fix ASAP.

    Demo now updated with a minimum height of the map component, so now it shows even on small screens.

    Jakob,

    It seems to be functional on the iPad just fine - so it's not a generic Safari issue.

    It's the small screen of a smartphone that leaves no room for the actual map (it collapses to a black line). That's all.

    Btw, It's good to know that Uluru is located near the center of Australia.

    How on earth did the Aborigines manage to find it without a smartphone .... it's almost like they had satellite tracking skills ... and a communication network ...
