Google map issues

Hi everybody,

I finally found a doc (How Qliktech uses Qlikview - google maps)  but from June 2009 which enlighted a bit but not enough.

The doc says variables have not to be touched, so i didn't.

I even loaded a google map API key. But is it really useful to do that because i saw other examples without it?

If you take a look at the doc, you'll see teh map doesn't show data but if i select a city it will show at the top right angle a part of a bubble.

So who can explain,

How to set a dynamic google map with 5 zoom levels?

Why when i use .qar, it doesn't work and shwos up an error message (WebView mode is ON)

Can i get somewhere a .qar file with all countries? Or do i have to build my own?

Is it possible to integrate .mif ?

thank you for your help

best regards

Chris

Re: Google map issues

hi,

Try to use below address for dynamic image:

='http://maps.google.com/maps/api/staticmap?center='

&

num(var_mid_lat, '##############', '.', ',' )

&

','

&

num(var_mid_long, '##############', '.', ',' )

&

'&zoom=$(var_zoom)'

&

'&maptype='&var_maptype

&

'&size='&map_size_x&'x'&map_size_y

&

'&sensor=false'

Re: Google map issues

Hi Sushil,

I tried it already and i applied it on my map. It works.

But i don't understand why the other solution doesn't work. Why i have error message ...
