You'd need a hidden field in the form, e.g. _js_geocode_raw that gets populated from the JS (just like the address field gets populated now) and then on save sends that value and stores it to the DB. You'd need to add that to the set method in LeafletMapMarker.php.

Ok, I'll give it a try on the weekend again. I really want to achieve correct address values so the users cannot mess-up text fields used for json+ld.

To give a status: I got it working :rolleyes: I need to do some clean up and then I can provide it.

@BrendonKoz Should I make a pull request to your code or to the original one?

@patman I'd suggest making the PR to the original repo as this feature will be a good improvement to the original module.

Congratulations on your success. If you're going to make a pull request I'd make it to the original Fieldtype module as that was the only reason I had forked the original module's code to begin with - to have workable code to store the raw return data, and offer a possible pull request.

I made my cleanup and pushed it to github: https://github.com/madebymats/FieldtypeLeafletMapMarker/compare/PW3...patman15:PW3

There is most probably still an issue with the default value, as I could not figure out how this works in the available time. Nevertheless, that has no real impact. I would be happy if some one could have a look and give feedback and/or test the version. I also added the new DB schema to allow for automatic updates. A smoke test went successfully. I'll wait for some feedback and make then the pull request.

I took a look at it. This is not the same thing that I was trying to accomplish (not that it has to be). These alterations don't use the Google geocoder's returned JSON data, it uses OpenStreetMap. I don't remember how, but I do remember I was able to get the JSON results of the OpenStreetMap geocoded data without any modifications to the module. What I was unable to get was the same values (100% of the time) from Google's geocoder, which contains more information (and often, I've found, more properly formatted and correct) than the OpenStreetMaps version. Because the found addresses for PLACES don't always match ("NYS Public Library" might not list a street address on OpenStreetMap, but Google will include everything), doing a manual lookup with Google's geocoder after-the-fact won't work 100% of the time. (Those were some of my reasons anyway.)

As for code:

  1. When changing a version number that has companion modules you'd probably want them all to match. Just a suggestion for any future possible patches. :)
  2. LeafletMapMarker.php around line 62:
} else if($key == 'raw') {
    $value = $value;
}

At first I did that too in my version (I think I removed it in my repo, maybe not) but that's just unnecessary. ;) Still looking through the rest as like I said, I don't fully grasp FieldtypeModule code.

Well, it is actually the purpose of this module not to use Google API. The description says

Quote

This is a port of the Map Marker Fieldtype by Ryan Cramer. Instead of Google maps it uses Leaflet maps.

So if you want to use Google you actually forked the wrong module maybe you should take a look at https://modules.processwire.com/modules/fieldtype-map-marker/

If you want the same modifications can for sure be also done there.

The purpose of the module is to provide a way to display Leaflet Maps. Leaflet =/= OpenStreetMap. Leaflet is a map display library whereas OpenStreetMaps is the actual map layer data source. OSM can be displayed using Leaflet (popular), OpenLayers, or even Google's map library, so I don't know (for sure) if the purpose of the module was specifically to avoid using Google's technology behind the scenes (which it does anyway as is evidenced from previous discussions of the code). I prefer OpenStreetMaps' imagery and ToS, but prefer Google's geocoder. Like I said though, your fork of the code is your own -- it did not have to follow my personal ideas. :)

I just upgraded a site to the latest version of this module and ran into some problems.

When I tried to upgrade the module via the ProcessWireUpgrade module, it showed a Fatal error.  I think it was WireData class undefined (Can't remember exactly).  It kept saying it was on a the 2.x version instead of the 3.x version.  So then I proceeded to just download it from github.  After I did that, the error went away.

Now on one page the leaflet map loads on the frontend, but it doesn't load any pins on the map like it did before.

Here is the error in Chrome's console:

errors.thumb.jpg.e96ec688aee3430b7e36a63194062533.jpg

On another frontend page the map doesn't load at all and I see this error in the console:

error2.jpg.c6a3a2d9feb40ee523ca158564fc8c4e.jpg

If I edit the page, I see the following error "WireDatabasePDO: SQLSTATE[42S22]: Column not found: 1054 Unknown column 'field_cleanup_location.raw' in 'field list'".  So I checked the table "field_cleanup_location" and it was missing a "raw" column.  So maybe the update script didn't run correctly?

PW 3.0.90, Google Chrome-Mac, I also refreshed the modules page and cleared the compiled files.

Anybody have any ideas?

Tried on another site... The exact error I get is "Fatal Error Class 'WireData' not found"

I get this error directly after I click on the Upgrade link.

The upgrade schema errors should now be fixed now.

I did see another problem.  It looks like when you output a map on the frontend, it includes both leaflet 0.7.3 and leaflet 0.7.7 css and javascript files from unpkyg.com.  I pretty sure this could cause problems.

In MarkupLeafletMap.module init() line 109... If I comment out the following lines:

        $this->config->styles->add('https://unpkg.com/leaflet@0.7.3/dist/leaflet.css');
        $this->config->styles->add($assetPath . "assets/leaflet-markercluster/MarkerCluster.css");
        $this->config->styles->add($assetPath . "assets/leaflet-markercluster/MarkerCluster.Default.css");
        $this->config->scripts->add('https://unpkg.com/leaflet@0.7.3/dist/leaflet.js');
        $this->config->scripts->add($assetPath . 'assets/leaflet-markercluster/leaflet.markercluster.js');
        $this->config->scripts->add($assetPath . 'assets/leaflet-providers/leaflet-providers.js');
        $this->config->scripts->add($assetPath . 'MarkupLeafletMap.js');

then leaflet 0.7.3 no longer loads its js and css.  It will only load leaflet 0.7.7 js and css.

I wonder if those lines are really needed for anything?

Sorry if I am asking something stupid, but.. how can I render multiple instances of maps?

$map = wire('modules')->get('MarkupLeafletMap');
echo $map->render($page, 'map');
echo $map->render($page, 'map2');

I can get only the last one.. if I delete it than the first one is showing. 

Thx!

I would like to output the address field in the frontend. However the field contains too much information. It's automatically populated with address, road, city, state and country, sometimes even more. Is there a way to only get the basic address?

This module is meant to give a lt/lng position of an address so we can display a marker on a map. It is not an address field type. When you set the marker on the page that you edit, it will get the address for the lat/lng that you have set in the GUI by reverse geocoding it through the Google geocoding API. This returns the long address string that you can get in your template with $page->mylocationfieldname->address.

To answer your question, there are ways to get a properly formatted address but all of them involve some work:
1. extend the module yourself to store address parts. Or read posts in this thread from here on and than use @BrendonKoz or @patman forks:

2. add fields to your template for postcode, street address, city, country. Fill them manually when you edit the page. Then you can render them in your templates. This should be the easiest way.

3. switch to the Map Marker Module which uses Google Maps and read from this post on where @adrian has extended the functionality to give you exactly what you want:

Thanks for your explanation. Of course, it is always an option to keep the map and the address fields separate (your option 2), but it seemed to be a better user experience to combine the two. I did try to use the original Map Marker module by Ryan. But things have become so complicated with the Google API console and somehow I can't get it to work, the geocoding won't work any longer even though I have created an API code and all... Besides, I do like the Open Street Map idea. That's why I hoped to use the Leaflet module.

@uliverse You can still use the Leaflet module and read through this thread from the link I recommended in my last post. Then have a look at how BrendonKoz and patman solved it in their forks. Seems like they have a readily available solution.

I just had a quick look, I think there is a bug in the render function at the end:

$this->page->inlineScript = $inlineScript;

This would replace the page content always with the last map. Unfortunately, I was not quickly able to fix it. In my opinion adding a dot

$this->page->inlineScript .= $inlineScript;

should make it, but it didn't (at least in my quick try).

Hey... does anybody know how to remove the scroll wheel zoom behavior? There is an option to set scrollWheelZoom to false, but that does not do anything...

Share this post

@uliverse - for now that option only works on the frontend not the backend.

Here is what I use:

Spoiler

$map = wire('modules')->get('MarkupLeafletMap');

$cleanupLocationMap = $map->render($page, 'cleanup_location', array(
  'height' => '300px',
  'markerIcon' => 'thumb-tack',
  'markerColour' => 'green',
  'provider' => 'OpenStreetMap.Mapnik',
  'scrollWheelZoom' => 'false',
  'markerLinkField' => ''
));

// Then I echo the $cleanupLocationMap in my template

Thank you... But even for the frontend it won't work... I tried your approach as well, but the result is the same.

I asked for removing the scroll in the backend already. It makes it so easy to inadvertently destroy carefully set map settings.

I hacked the module code to change that for the time being. :-)

      Hello for all,
      ConfigurationForm fieldtype module is one my experiment from 2016.
      Main target to build this module was to store multiple setup and configuration values in just 1 field and avoid to use 1 db table to store just single "number of items on page", or another db table to store "layout type" etc. Thanks to JSON formatted storage this module can help you to reduce number of PW native fields in project, save DB space, and reduce number of queries at front-end.
      Install and setup:
      Download (at the bottom ), unzip and install like any other PW module (site/modules/...). Create some filed using this type of field (ConfigurationForm Fieldtype) Go to field setup Input tab and drag some subfields to container area (demo). Set "Name" and other params for subfields Save and place field to templates ("Action tab") How to use it:
      In my case, I use it to store setup and configurations values, but also for contact details, small content blocks... (eg. "widgets").
      Basic usage example:
      ConfigForm fieldtype "setup" has subfields:
      "limit", type select, option values: 5, 10, 15, 20
      "sort", type select, option values: "-date", "date",  "-sort", "sort"
      // get page children (items) $limit = isset($page->setup->limit) ? $page->setup->limit : 10; $sort = isset($page->setup->sort) ? $page->setup->sort : '-sort'; $items = $page->children("limit=$limit, sort=$sort");  
      Screenshots:


       
      Notes:
      Provide option to search inside subfields Provide multilanguage inputs for text and textarea field types Provide option for different field layout per-template basis Do not place/use field type "Button" or "File input" because it won't works. Please read README file for more details and examples Module use JSON format to store values. Text and textarea field types are multilanguage compatible, but please note that main target for this module was to store setup values and small content blocks and save DB space. Search part inside JSON is still a relatively new in MySQL (>=5.77) and that's on you how and for what to use this module.
      Thanks:
      Initial point for this fieldtype was jQuery plugin FormBuiled and thanks to Kevin Chappel for this plugin.
      In field type "link" I use javascript part from @marcostoll module and thanks to him for that part.

      WHY?
      This module was built to fill the gap between simple $pages->find() operations and complex SQL queries.
      The problem with $pages->find() is that it loads all pages into memory and that can be a problem when querying multiple thousands of pages. Even $pages->findMany() loads all pages into memory and therefore is a lot slower than regular SQL.
      The problem with SQL on the other hand is, that the queries are quite complex to build. All fields are separate tables, some repeatable fields use multiple rows for their content that belong to only one single page, you always need to check for the page status (which is not necessary on regular find() operations and therefore nobody is used to that).
      In short: It is far too much work to efficiently and easily get an array of data based on PW pages and fields and I need that a lot for my RockGrid module to build all kinds of tabular data.

      Hi guys I'm relatively new to PW and just finished developing a page for a client. I was able to include all necessary functionality using the core fieldtypes but now I it seems that I need to extend them with a custom one. What I need is a simple button, that copies the absolute url (frontend not PW-backend) of the page which is currently edited to the clipboard. As this feature is only needed inside a specific template, I tend to use a custom fieldtype which provides this feature. I've been looking inside the core modules code (eg. FieldtypeCheckbox.module) but I don't really get the structure of it and how its rendered to the admin page. I also didn't find a lot of tutorials covering custom fieldtypes.
      Maybe some of you could give me some tips on how to write a basic custom fieldtype that renders a button which copies the value of
      page->httpUrl() to the clipboard using JS. Thanks!

      Some of you might have followed the development of this module here: https://processwire.com/talk/topic/15524-previewdiscussion-rockdatatables/ . It is the successor of "RockDataTables" and requires RockFinder to get the data for the grid easily and efficiently. It uses the open source part of agGrid for grid rendering.
       
      WHY?
      ProcessWire is awesome for creating all kinds of custom backend applications, but where it is not so awesome in my opinion is when it comes to listing this data. Of course we have the built in page lister and we have ListerPro, but none of that solutions is capable of properly displaying large amounts of data, for example lists of revenues, aggregations, quick and easy sorts by the user, instant filter and those kind of features. RockGrid to the rescue 😉 
       
      Features/Highlights:
      100k+ rows Instant (client side) filter, search, sort (different sort based on data type, eg "lower/greater than" for numbers, "contains" for strings) extendable via plugins (available plugins at the moment: fullscreen, csv export, reload, batch-processing of data, column sum/statistics, row selection) all the agGrid features (cell renderers, cell styling, pagination, column grouping etc) vanilla javascript, backend and frontend support (though not all plugins are working on the frontend yet and I don't plan to support it as long as I don't need it myself)  
      Limitations:
      While there is an option to retrieve data via AJAX the actual processing of the grid (displaying, filtering, sorting) is done on the client side, meaning that you can get into troubles when handling really large datasets of several thousands of rows. agGrid should be one of the most performant grid options in the world (see the official example page with a 100k row example) and does a lot to prevent problems (such as virtual row rendering), but you should always have this limitation in mind as this is a major difference to the available lister options that do not have this limitation.
      Currently it only supports AdminThemeUikit and I don't plan to support any other admin theme.
