U can use $(#"component_id").val and in your mapping you can just get the Val from localstorage

Google Maps Api AutoComplete

Post by shabeer »


I am trying to get the autosearch part using google places to work.

I copied the javascript code from and pasted it as a onPageShow run script.

I copied the html into my page.html file in web_resources.

I also have a input palette component named "autocomplete_form".

I am expecting autosearch suggestions to appear when I test it.

Am I missing something?

Hi Shaberr,

Please follow this solution:

1 Open your app settings on "External resources" tab.

2 Take a look on "User-defined resources" part. There should be.



3 If you can not find it - add it there. Details:

4 Remove previously autocomplete.

5 Add HTML component on the page.

6 Populate it with following HTML code. Details:


<input id="location_input" type="text" onchange="console&#46;log(getLatLngFromAddress(this&#46;value));" name="location_input"class="input-prompt" placeholder="Specify where your event will happen&#46;">


function initialize() {
console&#46;log("google initialize");
var input = document&#46;getElementById('location_input');
var autocomplete = new google&#46;maps&#46;places&#46;Autocomplete(input);

Code: Select all

 google&#46;maps&#46;event&#46;addListener(autocomplete, 'place_changed', function() { 

     var place = autocomplete&#46;getPlace(); 

     var location = place&#46;geometry&#46;location; 



google&#46;maps&#46;event&#46;addDomListener(window, 'load', initialize);
