map widget - directions

Post by bertBUSIbr8 » Thu Jun 28, 2018 2:37 pm

Hi,


I've been asked as part of a tender to provide a mapping service within an app.

Map widget will do most of what's been asked I think but having not used the map widget before Ihave a question when it come to directions.

Am I correct in thinking that I can get directions between two points on a map?

Is there a way to get directions like we are used to on Apple Maps or Google Maps with voiceover?

If anyone has some experience with this, I'd appreciate a few pointers.

Many thanks,


Bert

Hi,
the map widget doesn't help with directions. It displays a map, markers on the map, and on android some polyline. https://livecode.com/docs/9-0-0/components/map-widget/
For directions you probably need to use a browser widget and google map services. Best. Oliver
