I have a script that creates HTML for a web viewer that looks like:


data:text/html,<!DOCTYPE html>



  <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

  <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1.0" />

  <title>Google Maps Multiple Markers</title>

  <script src="



<body style='border: 0; margin: 0'>

  <div id="map" style="width: 669px; height: 411px;"></div>


  <script type="text/javascript">

    var locations = [

    var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map'), {

      zoom: 11,

      center: new google.maps.LatLng(29.4313301,-98.6231326),

      mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP



google.maps.event.addListener(map, 'click', function(event) {'fmp://SomeDomain/SomeFile?script=Map%20Open%20Jobs&param=' + + ',' + event.latLng.lng());








I'm working on the part in red.  What I want is when you click somewhere on the map, that it returns the Lat/Long in an FMP URL to fire off a FileMaker script.


If I use this, it works for giving me a Java Script prompt with the Lat/Long.


google.maps.event.addListener(map, 'click', function(event) {

    alert("Latitude: " + + " " + ", longitude: " + event.latLng.lng());



This will open a Java prompt with the Lat/Long in it.  I just need to get it to instead trigger a FMP URL so it can fire off a script.


Here is what the Java prompt looks like:
