Summary

Webviewer shows grey area with googlemaps EmbedAPI on MacOSX

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v5, 13.0v1, 13.0v2 and 13.0v3

Operating system version

MacOSX

Description of the issue

The Webviewer only shows a grey area when fed with generated code to show a map in an iframe

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a webviewer with a size of 600 x 280 pt's and feed the following code from a field:

data:text/html,<!DOCTYPE HTML>

You should substitute [API_KEY] for a valid api-key :-)

Expected result

A nice map with a route should appear

Actual result

A grey area

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

n/a

Configuration information

MacOSX 10.9.2 only

Workaround

Use FMP12v1...v4 or
Use Windows 7 or 8 or 8.1 or 2008R2

The screenshot shows what should be shown by the webviewer, but isn't. The screenshot was taken from an instance of FM12, prooving that the code works.

The second screenshot is taken from the very same file as screenshot nr1 only using FM13 instead of FM12

Using the Javascript API v3 at googlemaps seems to be the final solution and that means that the simple Embed API is unusable with FM
