    customizing google maps



      customizing google maps


           Hi guys, right now I have this: (see attachment)

           I would like to remove the red crossed areas by default so that when a record is loaded you'll only see the actual map.

           is this possible?

           can a standard view be changed to satellite or hybrid as well?

               Set your webviewer address to this and make a few changes listed at the bottom.


               <style type='text/css'>
               html,body {
                   <body bgcolor='#FFFFFF' TopMargin='10' style='border:0'>
                       <iframe width='" & GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( "WebViewer3" ; "width" ) - 40 &
                           "' height='" & GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( "WebViewer3" ; "height" ) - 30 &
                           "' frameborder='0' scrolling='no' marginheight='0' marginwidth='0'
                           src='http://local.google.com/maps?q=" & Accounts::Street1 & "," & Accounts::City & "," & Contacts::State & "," & Accounts::Postal_Code & "&amp;output=embed&iwloc=0'>


               Set the WebViewer 3 to your object name (you will need to name it) and change the other Account:: attributes to your fields.

                 The contacts starter solution has this built in.  The starter solutions use custom functions to display the map.

                     Does anyone know a solution to the question in my post above?

                     I would like google street view to be visible as well. The street view icon is visible in the standard google maps map in Filemaker.
