Google Maps and how I show the address in the map

hey everybody,

i have an issue with the google maps module ...
for a customer i want to display this nice speech bubble with the address in it he was searching for. but i can't find any help in the documentation for this problem. i set my google maps api key in the web.config and also try different settings like GoogleMapShowInfoWindowSetting = true and so on, but it doesn't help so far.

Hi Matt,

Have you looked at the Feature Instance Settings for the Google Map module? You get to these settings by clicking the "settings" link next to the Title of the Module Instance.

I believe the setting you are looking for is "Show Location Info Ballon"

HTH,
Joe D.

Re: Google Maps and how I show the address in the map

hi joe,

thanks for the quick help, but unfortunately this doesn't help me.
my customer uses the calendar and enter his location into the form so that he gets a google map in his new calendar event. the live system is using the .NET 3.5 version of mojoportal, i've also a .NET 4.0 version on my localhost, but i can't find the settings you're talking about. i just get some settings clicking on the advanced settings -> module types -> google maps, but there is no setting you've mentioned before.

or must i add the parameter to this settings?

hey joe,

thanks a lot! fixing a "bug" within one click ... nice :)
but there is one little question left: why is this a calendar setting and not a google map setting? ;) :D
or is this just my own misunderstanding of the system?

Re: Google Maps and how I show the address in the map

google map is a separate feature than event calendar, both features have this setting but they are separate features, event calendar feature is about events and it has support for google map but it is independent of the google map feature. there is no cross talk between features that plug into the cms pages, each feature is self contained and does not depend on other features. under the hood they do both use the same google map control but  when we speak of "features" we mean features that plug into the cms pages. one could think of the google map control as a feature but it is not a feature in the same context, it is just a re-usable component that is used in several features.
