Google Maps Field doesn’t work in Tabs

  • Hey Elliot, the Google Map’s field doesn’t appear support being inside tabs. I’ve attached a screenshot so you can see whats going on, the lower map is inside of a set of tabs.

    Cheers!

  • Hi @phillip

    Looks like a refresh is needed when tabs are switched.
    I’ll add this to the to-do

    Thanks

  • Hi @phillip

    Thanks again for the bug report.
    I’ve found and fixed the issue. You can find the updated code on github if you would like to est it out.

    Thanks

  • Yep, can confirm this is all fixed now, cheers Elliot. 🙂

  • Hi Elliot,

    it seems that the bug is still present. I’m using a Google Map field in a repeater itself in a tab.

    On back (and front), the map is not displayed correctly.

  • Hi @Aurelien Denis

    Is the issue related to the fact it is a sub field? Can you test by creating a normal map field as well?

    Thanks

  • Yes I’m using a sub field. The weird thing is that the Google Map field is no more working…

  • Hi Elliot, i have nearly the same problem,but still in mit frontend. I´ve tried to put the Map field in (jquery) Tabs and then in a Popup Window. The Result is this:

    Hope you have any Ideas

  • Hi @philro

    Are you talking about front end code? This is not an issue with the ACF google maps add-on at all.

    It is most likely that you are running your javascript google maps code on a hidden div element. This causes the rendering issue you have experienced.

    Please consult stack overflow for general google maps issues / questions.

    If you have any issues with the backend field type, please let me know.

    Thanks

  • I have a weird issue here – whenever the google map field is not inside a tab, it shows fine, but once I put it inside a tab it disables the WYSIWYG editor (basically the editor renders as a standard textarea field).

    EDIT: It’s working now, but I’m having the same issue as Aurelien Denis.

  • Hey @elliot Condon,

    This issue is happening for me. Google map inside a tab. Here’s a sample:

    http://logans.linkhousedev.net/death-notice/bob-jacklin/

    Scroll to Service & Visitation, and click the VISITATION LOCATION tab.

    Thoughts?

  • I figured out my issue, in case this helps anyone. I used the sample code found here: http://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/google-map/ to generate a map. I grouped more than one using tabs (which uses jQuery UI’s tabs) and initiated it like so:

    $('.acf-map').each(function(){
        render_map( $(this) );
    });

    That left me with a map in each tab. The problem was, the hidden maps (in inactive tabs) didn’t fully render (only the top left block would be showing). There is likely a better way to do this, but I stored the javascript map variable so I could use it again, then listened for tab clicks so I could redraw the map like so:

    $( ".my-tabs" ).on( "tabsactivate", function( event, ui ) {
        var map = jQuery.data(document.body,"map");
        //resize the map    
        google.maps.event.trigger(map, 'resize');
        //center the map
        center_map( map );
    });

    This worked for me. I realize this isn’t an ACF “problem”, but it might be helpful to users to have it in the docs just in case they run into it.

    Cheers!
    Jay
