Summary

FM14 Mac Google Maps Embed Generates iFrame Error - Works in WebDirect

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FMPA v14.0.1

Operating system version

Mac 10.10.3

Description of the issue

Yet again this bug has arisen when using embedded Google Maps in a Web Container. When you embed a map and view it in WebDirect through a browser it works fine. However, if you view the same record through FM it shows an error stating, "The Google Maps Embed API must be used in an iframe."

It was working up until a few days ago in the client but every time Google tweaks something it breaks it in the FM Client but not in WebDirect.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a web container field using the below:

"https://maps.google.com/maps?t=h&output=svembedmfe&iwloc=0&" & "q=" & COUNTRY FIELD & ", " & CITY FIELD

Expected result

View it in WebDirect and in FM clients and you should see a map pointing to the city and country.

Actual result

Web Direct does show the map, however, when viewed in an FM client it shows an error.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

The FM client error message is "The Google Maps Embed API must be used in an iframe."
