thank you David I really appreciate the links, i was hope to get some clarification regarding my situation I dont understand how to make a custom web url in filemaker to show my address properly because the maps in the filemaker are for us country and not for jamaica. for example if I put in a street name it will show me so many options in us and not in jamaica which is where I want the map to focus on
I made a sample from the Contact start solution. I'm from the U.S.A. and know nothing about Jamaican addresses. I Google for an Jamaican address and then I went to Google maps to test and I converted the sample contact to match. I have no way to verify if the map that is showing is correct or that I have the address is the correct format.
If it is incorrect then let me know and give me a sample address of a business in the area and the normal address format that is used in Jamaica.
Here is the sample databases https://www.sugarsync.com/pf/D9559058_78149901_050522
Hello S Chamblee the map that you sent me is correct, however residential addresses the format is
street number and street name---------------- Ltd 82 East Street, Old Harbour, Saint Catherine, Jamaica
District Post Office
Country and Region
I tried coping the that from the contact solution but it would work in my solution I would love for it to show just like that without the the panel and google stuff and the top can you help me please.
here what I think is the problem when I enter the name in address line 2 i was putting P.O. at the end i think that was it, in the contact solution they have a function written can you help me to get that working in my web viewer
sorry about that, I meant to say that it did not work
When I copied this address (Ltd 82 East Street, Old Harbour, Saint Catherine, Jamaica) into google, it worked fine. Even taking off "Saint Catherine' & Jamaica worked fine too. So it's probably that the fields in your database are not matching the fields in the calculations that you copied.
This might help. When you copied from the starter solution you have to make sure you change the url to match your Table::Fields. If you go into the Web Viewer Setup and click on specify, you get the specify calculation window. If it starts with /* and ends with */ that would mean your Table::Field references are not correct. Also note in layout mode, if you click on the web viewer and bring up the inspector on the position tab, you have to name the web viewer (which is an object) Map1. See the screenshot. If none of this helps, you can either put up some screenshots. One like the one I posted, and one of your specify Calculation window.
You could also upload your database and let someone take a look at it.
edit: oops forgot the Screenshot
The name does not go into line1 or line2 of the address the name is to the left, the name is not required nor is it used to show the map. I will do test with the PO Box in line 2.
I tested with a PO Box and the Map displayed. I think the issue is with you entering the name in line 2 of the address. Again the name is not used to display the map.
When you design your own app you could have a name / company field to display the name above the address for mailing purposes.
I'm still a little confused with the format. I assume Old Harbour is the city. Should Old Harbour be on line1 or should it be own it own city line between line2 and the parish.
When I changed the starter solution. I only modified the desktop webviewer, I didn't think about the iPad or iPhone layouts, but I have went back and updated those layouts.
how can i send my solution to you so you could look at it and set it up properly so that only the map is shown with the pin and the border around the parish
I really appreciate the support I have been getting on this, my problem is that I don't know much scripts.
put it into dropbox in your public folder. Right-click this file, then choose Dropbox > Copy Public Link. This copies an Internet link to your file that you can paste anywhere: emails, instant messages, blogs, etc.
