Map Widget problems

Post by AndyP » Tue Apr 24, 2018 8:46 am

For my next presentation on LC Global, I have a working ISS tracker which uses a browser widget and javascript to display the ISS track and position which is working well.
I would like to also use the new Map widget as an alternative method but the widget always remains google map when built for Android.

I have :

Code: Select all

set the centerCoordinates of widget "Map" to "55.9533,-3.1883"
         set the region of widget "Map" to "55.9533,-3.1883, 10, 10"
         local tMarkers, tMarkerData
         put "55.9533,-3.1883" into tMarkerData["coordinates"]
         put "Centre of Edinburgh" into tMarkerData["title"]
         put tMarkerData into tMarkers["Edinburgh"]
         set the markers of widget "Map" to tMarkers
         -- draw some parallel lines over Scotland
         local tPolylines
         put "55.9533,-3.1883,55.8533,-3.1883" into tPolylines[1]["coordinates"]
         put "255,0,0" into tPolylines[1]["color"]
         put "5" into tPolylines[1]["width"]
         put "54.9533,-3.1883,54.8533,-3.1883" into tPolylines[2]["coordinates"]
         set the polylines of widget "Map" to tPolylines
as per the dictionary entries and added my Google auth 2 key to the Map widget inclusions which I have added manually to the build settings.

Does anyone have a working example or can see a problem with what I'm doing?
