Here's a bit of code that I'm using on a personal project of mine. This code uses the Google Maps Places API auto complete
feature without having to display a map. This means you get a text input box where you can start typing in Google Maps
locations and fit it into your standard HTML
There is a full places auto complete
example on Google's
pages but it only shows how to do it with a map present.
With my bit of code you turn this...
So lets look at some code.
for the API
. This is documented here
Then I add an input text field
that looks something like this...
that initialises the API
and adds a listener to the input text box
That's pretty much it! The input text box
will now allow you to start entering locations and will attempt to auto complete them for you.
to do that is below.
