Google Map Grey > User Profile

  • Hi there

    I am trying to display the location on a user’s map in his frontend profile.
    The issue is that the map is shown in gray.
    I pass the code that I have implemented:

    In css:

    .acf-map {
        width: 100%;
        height: 400px;
        border: #ccc solid 1px;
        margin: 20px 0;
    }
    
    .acf-map img {
       max-width:inherit !important;
    }

    In js:

    <script src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?key=AIzaSyCEtGGcK-UdAY7HpEnNxwRTywZlvBM0p1U"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    (function($) {
    
    /*
    *  new_map
    *
    *  This function will render a Google Map onto the selected jQuery element
    *
    *  @type    function

    function new_map( $el ) {
    	
    	// var
    	var $markers = $el.find('.marker');
    	
    	
    	// vars
    	var args = {
    		zoom		: 16,
    		center		: new google.maps.LatLng(0, 0),
    		mapTypeId	: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
    	};
    	
    	
    	// create map	        	
    	var map = new google.maps.Map( $el[0], args);
    	
    	
    	// add a markers reference
    	map.markers = [];
    	
    	
    	// add markers
    	$markers.each(function(){
    		
        	add_marker( $(this), map );
    		
    	});
    	
    	
    	// center map
    	center_map( map );
    	
    	
    	// return
    	return map;
    	
    }
    
    /*

    function add_marker( $marker, map ) {
    
    	// var
    	var latlng = new google.maps.LatLng( $marker.attr('data-lat'), $marker.attr('data-lng') );
    
    	// create marker
    	var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
    		position	: latlng,
    		map			: map

    		bounds.extend( latlng );
    
    	});

    	}
    	else
    	{
    		// fit to bounds
    		map.fitBounds( bounds );
    	}
    
    }
    
    /*

    */
    // global var
    var map = null;
    
    $(document).ready(function(){
    
    	$('.acf-map').each(function(){
    
    		// create map
    		map = new_map( $(this) );
    
    	});
    
    });
    
    })(jQuery);
    </script>

    In the php:

    <?php 
    $location = get_field('location','user_'. $vendor_id);
    if( !empty($location) ):
    ?>
    <div class="acf-map">
    	<div class="marker" data-lat="<?php echo $location['lat']; ?>" data-lng="<?php echo $location['lng']; ?>"></div>
    </div>
    <?php endif; ?>

    NOTE: I use the WC Vendors plugin.

    Sorry for my English, its a Google Translation..

    Thanks,

  • Hi @agenciazaro

    The Google map API will not work as expected if initialized on a hidden element. When the element is show, the map will not display. Please try and trigger the ‘resize’ event on the map variable after the map element is visible.

    // popup is shown and map is not visible
    google.maps.event.trigger(map, 'resize');
  • Hi. Thanks for your answer!
    Sorry but I do not understand where I have to put that code. I do not understand anything about js haha.
    Could you specifically tell me where I should place that code?

    Thank you again!

    regards

  • Hi @agenciazaro

    You should call the code after the map is created, preferably on this line:

    $(document).ready(function(){
    
    	$('.acf-map').each(function(){
    
    		// create map
    		map = new_map( $(this) );
                    // popup is shown and map is not visible
                    google.maps.event.trigger(map, 'resize');
    
    	});
    
    });

    });
  • Hi James – thanks for your response here. I’ve got the same issue, the map is displaying grey and buggy. You can see mine here: http://www.coolbreeze2200.com

    I’ve tried the above but my .js code is just slightly different, and I don’t know enough JS to make the adjustment. My code looks like this:

    $(document).ready(function(){
     
     $('.acf-map').each(function(){
     
     		// create map
    		map = new_map( $(this) );
                   
     render_map( $(this) );
     
     });
     
    });

    How would I alter your above solution accordingly? Or is there another reason for the grey box I may be missing?

    Thanks again,
    Brian
