Map Marker Map

Recommended Posts

OK, I need some help with this. This is my setup:

Dealers

-Australia

--Dealer 1

--Dealer 2

I would like a map on the Dealers page showing a marker for each dealer. Is there a way to have the marker link go to an anchor tag I have set for the country heading on the same page?

echo "<div id='map'></div>"; //div to show in template map

$js = "<script type='text/javascript'>";
$js .= "RCDMap.options.mapTypeId = google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP;";
$js .= "\nRCDMap.init('map', 0, 0);";

$dealers = $pages->get("/dealers/")->find("template=dealer");
foreach($dealers as $marker) {
$js .= "\nRCDMap.addMarker('{$marker->title}', '{$marker->url}', {$marker->map_marker->lat}, {$marker->map_marker->lng});";
}
$js .= "\nRCDMap.fitToMarkers();";
$js .= "</script>";
echo $js;

It should be that second argument to RCDMap.addMarker, where you could specify whatever URL (or anchor) you want:

RCDMap.addMarker('some title', '/some/url/', lat, lng);

RCDMap.addMarker('some title', '#some_anchor', lat, lng);

Ugh, thanks Ryan, it seems so obvious now....in my defence, it was late last night I posted that.

Although how would I grab the anchor link of the parent of each marker i.e. #australia rather than #dealer1?

Edit: Got it!

$js .= "\nRCDMap.addMarker('{$marker->title}', '#{$marker->parent->title}', {$marker->map_marker->lat}, {$marker->map_marker->lng});";

In the admin the map doesn't load fully if the field is set to be collapsed on page load. I think it is because width is set as 100% rather than setting a size explicitly.

.InputfieldMapMarkerMap {
width: 100%;
height: 300px;
}

Another factor is that I don't think the MapMarker works when placed in other tabs. I think gmaps probably just needs to be visible when the editor is rendered in order for everything to work optimally.

Yep, there is a problem when gmap is hidden. This happened to me on the frontend of a site where I was using jqueryUi to show the map, and apparently it's very common with lightboxes. The problem is that, if you are using display: none; to hide the map, it first gets rendered with 0px size, and this is what jquery's .hide() uses. The solution would be to use visibility:hidden; or position it absolutely outside of the screen instead. But I think this wouldn't be easy to do in the admin, since it's using jqueryUi...

I have recently also a problem with the plugin. The address will not be geocoded.

How can I set the value status from my own form?

$mitgliedPage->geocode->address = $form['strasse'].', '.$form['plz'].' '.$form['ort'];
$mitgliedPage->geocode->status = ...?

Thank you for your help and the great work here!

To Geocode from the API side, you need to set the address field and save the page:

$page->map->address = '411 Holly Road, Hopkins, MN';
$page->save();

If that doesn't do it, you may sometimes need to give $page a hint:

$page->trackChange('map');
$page->save();

If it still doesn't work, you might want to double check that your PHP install supports allow_url_fopen.

The 'status' field is not meant to be set by you. It is set by Google Maps geocoder.

ryan - this is an amazing module! I'm just using it on a website I'm building and it is spot on :)

Just a note to others: I originally had a separate Address field, but you don't need that with this module. I wasn't sure how much you could customise the address input, but you can do whatever you like within reason.

What I mean is Google is pretty forgiving - you can put things like "Somewhere over the rainbow, Rydal, Ambleside, LA22 9LX" then it will just take the parts of the address it understands and find the location from that which essentially allows you to begin the address however you like (useful if you want to put a specific brand name or other title in there at the beginning). What you can't then do of course is drag and drop the pin as the address changes again, but so far the pins have been spot on for me since they're using UK postcodes and I'm picking items in the wilderness for now.

I've also been putting commas in so that when I output the address on the page it can do a new line in the address based on the commas.

Thanks, Pete. You just saved me a load of work. (Why didn't I think of that?)

If you uncheck the checkbox separating the address and the lat/lng boxes, you can adjust the coordinates separately from the address, or vice versa.

The above uses my RCDMap class. Feel free to grab it if you find it helpful. You'll want to view the source on any of those URLs above to see how it works. http://www.di.net/al...ripts/RCDMap.js

An addition to the RCDMap.js to contol the zoom level if there's only one marker ( ryan script needs at least 2 markers to set the zoom level, wich is nice if you've more then one marker )

Just replace the fitToMarkers at the bottom of the script & it wil work for 1 marker with zoom level 10, or the zoom level depending on multiple markers.

fitToMarkers: function() {
   if(RCDMap.numMarkers == 1 ) {
       RCDMap.map.setZoom(10);
   } else {
       var bounds = new google.maps.LatLngBounds();
       for(var i = 0; i < RCDMap.numMarkers; i++) {
           var latLng = RCDMap.markers[i].position;
           bounds.extend(latLng);
       }
       RCDMap.map.fitBounds(bounds);
   }
}

Hi ryan

Just tried to integrate the MapMarker address field with search and it won't let me. Am I doing something wrong?

My selector is as follows:

$matches = $pages->find("map_marker.address%=$q, limit=50"); 

I think I might just be being thick :)

FieldtypeMapMarker doesn't implement a getMatchQuery method, which is required in order to support any operators that don't exist in MySQL. For instance, MySQL knows what "=" and ">" are, but it doesn't know what "%=" is. So I'm guessing you are getting a "Operator '%=' is not implemented in FieldtypeMapMarker" error message.

The second issue is that there isn't actually a field named 'address' in the DB, as this fieldtype represents it with the default 'data' field. Meaning you would just refer to it as "map_marker" (or whatever you field name is) rather than "map_marker.address". But the truth is, since we're using 'address' as in this Fieldtype at runtime, we really should allow it for queries too. Try adding this to your FieldtypeMapMarker.module, which should solve both issues: 

public function getMatchQuery($query, $table, $subfield, $operator, $value) {
  if(!$subfield || $subfield == 'address') $subfield = 'data';
  if($operator != '%=') return parent::getMatchQuery($query, $table, $subfield, $operator, $value); 
  $ft = new DatabaseQuerySelectFulltext($query);
  $ft->match($table, $subfield, $operator, $value);
  return $query;
}
Let me know if that works out for you, and I'll add it to mine too. I'm also going to add a fulltext index to the 'data' field so that we can use other partial match operators.

Perfect - works for me :)

So is that function basically useful for any module that implements its own tables if you want such a field to be searchable?

Ah, except I have two issues that I suspect are more general Selector issues.

If I'm searching for the partial word "test" but the actual word is "testing" for example, it won't return a result. I thought it might be a length limitation, but I even tried "testin" without the G and it doesn't work no matter which selector I try. :(

The other issue is postcodes. I have a post code (zip code) in the map marker field that goes something like "LA22 X99". Typing in either LA22 or X99 returns nothing :( Is it possible they're too short? I seem to remember something about mySQL defaults limiting short word searches so this one might not be a bug :)

I think you hit here some full text mysql stopwords or number get filtered out and it's too short :)

I think Soma's right. The %= selector works for postcodes and part postcodes cos it doesn't use the fulltext index. It's a bit less versatile than a fulltext search and it is a bit slower but I have it searching about 7000 pages with no noticeable speed issues. (Even 'slow' mySQL is still fast.)

What I mean though is that %= doesn't work for me, so it's likely a length issue I need to change in my mySQL config like Soma said.

Hmmm, %= doesn't use fulltext indexes (indices?), so word length shouldn't matter.

Since it's using LIKE in this case (rather than fulltext) it won't matter. 

I just tested it out here on the skyscrapers profile. These queries worked for me:

$pages->find("map.address%=peachtree"); // returned all skyscrapers on peachtree road
$pages->find("map.address%=pea"); // returned the same thing
$pages->find("map.address%=191"); // Returned "191 peachtree road" skyscraper

Try grabbing the latest version of FieldtypeMapMarker. I updated it to have the new getMatchQuery method. I also modified it a bit so that it supports ^= and $=, and all the fulltext searching operators. Though the fulltext operators will only work on newly created fields, since existing installs won't have a fulltext index. But like DaveP said, you'd have to have a very large quantity of items before you'd see the speed difference.

Hi!

I just came across a strange problem and I hope you can help me. It's something that worked before, but suddenly stopped working. As far as I know I did not change the code in any way,

Ok, here we go:

I use an older version of this module and the module itself works perfectly fine. I use it together with Ryan's RCDMap class (for Google Maps) and the source code generated using the module is:

<script type='text/javascript'>
RCDMap.options.zoom = 4;
RCDMap.options.mapTypeId = google.maps.MapTypeId.HYBRID;
RCDMap.init('map', 60.128162,18.643501);

RCDMap.addMarker('Fotografiska Museet', '/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/fotografiska-museet/', 59.319450, 18.077618, 'FFFF00','A');
RCDMap.addMarker('Koninklijk paleis', '/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/koninklijk-paleis/', 59.326756, 18.071651, 'FFFF00','B');
RCDMap.addMarker('Skälby', '/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/skalby/', 56.682201, 16.336901, 'FF0000','C');
RCDMap.addMarker('Finspångs Slott', '/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/finsp-ngs-slott/', 58.709824, 15.770853, 'FF0000','D');
RCDMap.addMarker('Brudfjällsvägen', '/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/brudfjallsvagen/', 58.860771, 12.401965, 'FF0000','E');
RCDMap.fitToMarkers();</script>
 

So far no problems...

The RCDMap.addMarker function is:

	addMarker: function(title, url, lat, lng, poicolor, poi_id) {

		var latLng = new google.maps.LatLng(lat, lng);
		
		var marker = new StyledMarker({ 
			styleIcon:new StyledIcon(StyledIconTypes.MARKER,{color:poicolor,text:poi_id}),
			position: latLng, 
			map: RCDMap.map,
		});

		RCDMap.markers[RCDMap.numMarkers] = marker;
		RCDMap.numMarkers++;

		google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'mouseover', function(e) { 
			RCDMap.currentUrl = url; 
			RCDMap.mapNote.html("<span>" + title + "</span>").show()
				.css('top', '0px')
				.css('left', '0px')
				.css('display', 'block')
				.css('width', 'auto')
				.css('color', '#ffffff')
				.css('background', '#000000')
				.css('padding', '2px 5px 2px 5px');

			$(document).mousemove(function(e) {
				$("#map_note").css({
					'top': e.pageY-10, 	
					'left': e.pageX+15
					});
			}); 

		});

		google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'mouseout', function(e) {
			RCDMap.mapNote.hide();
			$(document).unbind("mousemove"); 
		}); 

		google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', function(e) {
			window.location.href = RCDMap.currentUrl; 
		}); 
	},
 

The goal is that every marker has its own letter (poi_id) and color (poicolor). This used to work fine, but suddenly something happened and now is every marker getting the same letter and color as the last marker.

The titles, links etc. working fine and are unique for every marker. Any suggestions about what I am missing?

You can see the problem live at: http://www.zwedenweb.com/bezienswaardigheden-en-attracties/

Thanks in advance!

I'm not up-to-speed enough on Google Maps to be able to troubleshoot very well. But if it stopped working on its own without there being some change somewhere, then it's got to be related to a change at Google Maps? Still, you might want to put a console.log(poi_id) and console.log(poicolor) in there to monitor and isolate what's going on. It would be nice to know specifically where the info is getting lost.

      Happy new year, everybody 🥬
      I've been sitting on this Dashboard module I made for a client and finally came around to cleaning it up and releasing it to the wider public. This is how it looks.
      ProcessWire Dashboard

      If anyone is interested in trying this out, please go ahead! I'd love to get some feedback on it. If this proves useful and survives some real-world testing, I'll add this to the module directory.
      Download
      You can find the latest release on Github.
      Documentation
      Check out the documentation to get started. This is where you'll find information about included panel types and configuration options.
      Custom Panels
      My goal was to make it really simple to create custom panels. The easiest way to do that is to use the panel type template and have it render a file in your templates folder. This might be enough for 80% of all use cases. For anything more complex (FormBuilder submissions? Comments? Live chat?), you can add new panel types by creating modules that extend the DashboardPanel base class. Check out the documentation on custom panels or take a look at the HelloWorld panel to get started. I'm happy to merge any user-created modules into the main repo if they might be useful to more than a few people.
       Disclaimer
      This is a pre-release version. Please treat it as such — don't install it on production sites. Just making sure 🍇
      Roadmap
      These are the things I'm looking to implement myself at some point. The wishlist is a lot longer, but those are the 80/20 items that I probably won't regret spending time on.
      Improve documentation & add examples ⚙️ Panel types Google Analytics ⚙️ Add new page  🔥 Drafts 🔥 At a glance / Page counter 404s  Layout options Render multiple tabs per panel panel groups with heading and spacing between ✅ panel wrappers as grid item (e.g. stacked notices) ✅ Admin themes support AdminThemeReno and AdminThemeDefault ✅ Shortcuts panel add a table layout with icon, title & summary ✅ Chart panel add default styles for common chart types ✅ load chart data from JS file (currently passed as PHP array) Collection panel support image columns ✅ add buttons: view all & add new ✅

      Hi everyone!
      I'm trying out the Login/Register module for my site. Noted that the module assigns the newly registered user to login-register role. 
      Once you modify the login-register role's permissions, particularly adding page-edit, the new member role will be set to guest. 
      Thing is I'd like to grant my new users the power to create their own pages. Any advice? 
      Thanks.

      Hello
      Till now I hacked something with the twig template but it works no more with new PW versions so I look forward to create a module. I am working on a site in multiple languages : French, English, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian. The new posts are entered in any language with a field for language. Till now, I got twig files to get the translations with constants defined for each part of the pages.
      So I'd like to create a module to include theses files added according to the url /fr/en/...
      Have you some observations to do before I begin about the direction to take ?
      Thank you

      Mystique Module for ProcessWire CMS/CMF
      Github repo : https://github.com/trk/Mystique
      Mystique module allow you to create dynamic fields and store dynamic fields data on database by using a config file.
      Requirements
      ProcessWire 3.0 or newer PHP 7.0 or newer FieldtypeMystique InputfieldMystique Installation
      Install the module from the modules directory:
      Via Composer:
      composer require trk/mystique Via git clone:
      cd your-processwire-project-folder/ cd site/modules/ git clone https://github.com/trk/Mystique.git Module in live reaction with your Mystique config file
      This mean if you remove a field from your config file, field will be removed from edit screen. As you see on youtube video.
      Using Mystique with your module or use different configs path, autoload need to be true for modules
      Default configs path is site/templates/configs/, and your config file name need to start with Mystique. and need to end with .php extension.
      Adding custom path not supporting anymore !
      // Add your custom path inside your module class`init` function, didn't tested outside public function init() { $path = __DIR__ . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'configs' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR; Mystique::add($path); } Mystique module will search site/modules/**/configs/Mystique.*.php and site/templates/Mystique.*.php paths for Mystique config files.
      All config files need to return a PHP ARRAY like examples.
      Usage almost same with ProcessWire Inputfield Api, only difference is set and showIf usage like on example.
      <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : testing-mystique */ return [ 'title' => __('Testing Mystique'), 'fields' => [ 'text_field' => [ 'label' => __('You can use short named types'), 'description' => __('In file showIf working like example'), 'notes' => __('Also you can use $input->set() method'), 'type' => 'text', 'showIf' => [ 'another_text' => "=''" ], 'set' => [ 'showCount' => InputfieldText::showCountChars, 'maxlength' => 255 ], 'attr' => [ 'attr-foo' => 'bar', 'attr-bar' => 'foo' ] ], 'another_text' => [ 'label' => __('Another text field (default type is text)') ] ] ]; Example:
      site/templates/configs/Mystique.seo-fields.php <?php namespace ProcessWire; /** * Resource : seo-fields */ return [ 'title' => __('Seo fields'), 'fields' => [ 'window_title' => [ 'label' => __('Window title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a window title') ] ], 'navigation_title' => [ 'label' => __('Navigation title'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXT, // or InputfieldText 'useLanguages' => true, 'showIf' => [ 'window_title' => "!=''" ], 'attr' => [ 'placeholder' => __('Enter a navigation title') ] ], 'description' => [ 'label' => __('Description for search engines'), 'type' => Mystique::TEXTAREA, 'useLanguages' => true ], 'page_tpye' => [ 'label' => __('Type'), 'type' => Mystique::SELECT, 'options' => [ 'basic' => __('Basic page'), 'gallery' => __('Gallery'), 'blog' => __('Blog') ] ], 'show_on_nav' => [ 'label' => __('Display this page on navigation'), 'type' => Mystique::CHECKBOX ] ] ]; Searching data on Mystique field is limited. Because, Mystique saving data to database in json format. When you make search for Mystique field, operator not important. Operator will be changed with %= operator.
      Search example
      $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.show_on_nav=1'); $navigationPages = pages()->find('my_mystique_field.page_tpye=gallery');
