maps autocomplete place changed event

  • Hi there,
    Im trying to add a listener to the “place_changed” event of the autocomple of the maps field.
    For now i have no clue where to start, i knoe there is a action hook for the map init but i cant get the data out of the autocompletion after its changed.
    Has anyone a idea how to go over that?

  • I’m not sure how far you’ve got with this but this works for me.

    acf.add_action('google_map_init', function( map, marker, $field ){
      // map (object) google map object returned by the google.maps.Map() function
      // marker (object) marker object returned by the google.maps.Marker() function
      // $field (jQuery) field element
      var autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete( $field.find('.search')[0] );
      autocomplete.addListener('place_changed', function(e) {
        var place = autocomplete.getPlace();
        // your code here...
