Gmaps

Employment/Purpose

Components: gmaps, ginfo, gmarker, gpolyline, gpolygon, gimage, and gscreen.

A gmaps is a maps component that wraps the famous Google Maps service that you can control it and embedded it in your ZK web application page in pure Java. Inside the gmap, you can manipulate your maps and add contents to the maps to create convenient locality related web application. You can add ginfo to represent an anchored information window for the maps. You can add multiple gmarkers to indicate a special location. You can add gpolyline and gpolygon to indicate a path or an area. You can also overlay gimage and gscreen to indicate very special places.

Authentication

API Key

Important: Since 2016 an API Key is mandatory in order to use the gmaps API. The APIKey is defined as a global JS variable as in the examples below. Also check out the trouble shooting section. NOTE: You'll have to upgrade to version 3.0.4 (older versions don't work anymore)

See Example below.

Client ID

Alternatively you can specify a client-id using the client-property <gmaps client="YOUR_CLIENT_ID"/>

Work with MVVM

3.0.4 already includes the addon.xml below, you don't need to add it manually.


since 6.0.0

For work with ZK6 MVVM, it is required to create an addon xml and add the server annotation as follows:


( You can download the sample project [here] )

WEB-INF/gmapsz-bind-addon.xml

Trouble Shooting

Starting from June 2016, an API key is required to use Google Maps APIs. If you are seeing the following error in your JS console, please obtain an API key from Google.

   Google Maps API error: MissingKeyMapError

For more information please refer to this link.

Note that ZK GMaps integrates ZK and Google Maps, allowing developers to include Google Maps inside a ZK application easily. Google Maps itself is a 3rd party library and is licensed under its own terms and conditions.
