How to use it

Check example page (you need to enable module to load examples) for couple of short examples

http://your-site/gmap3_tools/example

. Note that you do not need to enable module to use it API calls, you just need to include gmap3_tools.inc file in your code.

Basically you need to do 3 things to get working gmap:

  1. Load gmap3_tools.inc file
    module_load_include('inc', 'gmap3_tools');
  2. Call gmap3_tools_add_map() function from API file with appropriate map configuration array
        // Map example with some custom options and 2 markers.
        gmap3_tools_add_map(array(
        'mapId' => 'gmap-canvas',
        'mapOptions' => array(
          'zoom' => 8,
        ),
        'markers' => array(
          gmap3_tools_create_marker(-35, 150, 'Marker with info window', 'Marker info window content.'),
          gmap3_tools_create_marker(-35, 150.5, 'Marker without info window'),
        ),
        'gmap3ToolsOptions' => array(
          'defaultMarkersPosition' => GMAP3_TOOLS_DEFAULT_MARKERS_POSITION_CENTER,
        ),
      ));

    This function will initialize needed js code and create google map js definition for you.

  3. Last thing you need to do is add HTML element with 'gmap-canvas' id in your Drupal output - this element will hold Google map.
    $page_output .= '

    ';

Check README.txt for more documentation and gmap3_tools module file for code examples.
