  • Google API Maps

    Okay... so I've been fighting for a while now to get Google maps up on my sites. I want to do it API way, I already have a key and such.
    I can get the map to show up just fine... but when I try to include a marker (the little balloon) to show the specific location of the restaurant (the websites are all dining) it doesn't seem to work.

    Any suggestions?

    Here is my code...
    </script>

    <script type="text/javascript">

    function initialize() {
    if (GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
    var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById("map_canvas"));
    var myGeographicCoordinates = new GLatLng(52.876207777, -118.08148384)
    map.addOverlay(marker);

    }
    }

    </script>

    (and of course I have the key script above this, and the div line in the body for the map, yes I have the function turned to On in body as well)

    you need to put map.addOverlay(new GMarker(myGeographicCoordinates)); instead of map.addOverlay(marker);

      Two-Toe I'm getting excited cause now I can see the marker!!
      But it's not showing in the correct place...
      any ideas?

      <script type="text/javascript">

      function initialize() {
      if (GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
      var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById("map_canvas"));
      map.setCenter(new GLatLng(52.876207777, -118.08148384), 13);
      map.addOverlay(new GMarker(52.876207777, -118.08148384));
      }
      }

      </script>

      (sorry but I've been trouble shooting this for more than 9 hours and have just kinda realized it's over my head a bit in my ability to code in JS. So I really really really appreciate the help)

        <script type="text/javascript">

        function initialize() {
        if (GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
        var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById("map_canvas"));
        var point = new GLatLng(52.876207777, -118.08148384);
        map.setCenter(point, 13);
        map.addOverlay(new GMarker(point));
        }
        }

        </script>

              Okay... new question... (do you hate me yet).
              So I have zoom working and dragging etc.
              It works in Firefox and Safari (I am on a Mac)
              But not in crappy IE... any ideas?

                  here's my code...
                  <script type="text/javascript">

                  function initialize() {
                  if (GBrowserIsCompatible()) {
                  var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById("map_canvas"));
                  var point = new GLatLng(52.876207777, -118.08148384);
                  map.setCenter(point, 14);
                  map.addOverlay(new GMarker(point));
                  map.addControl(new GSmallMapControl());

                  GEvent.addListener( map, "click", function(o,p) {
                  if ( o != null ) return;
                  if ( map.getZoomLevel() > 1 )
                  map.centerAndZoom( p, map.getZoomLevel() - 2 );
                  else if ( map.getZoomLevel() == 1 )
                  map.centerAndZoom( p, 0 );
                  });

                  }
                  }

                  </script>

                  Do I need something special for IE? (I run 5.2 on a MAC)
                  I have to test PC elsewhere cause I don't have one on the weekend...

                    ah, i think the google maps api only supports IE 6.0+ so that's probably why.

                      gotcha.
                      okay. i will just do a check on IE at a different location.
                      Thanks.

                        I like that you are answering the 'why' questions. Why is the text background red, why are you using the crumbled paper texture etc.
