DMXZone Google Maps

Good product with great potential. Still has some issues with Internet Explorer and Chrome but they really seem to listen and respond quickly to any concerns and ideas.  Again, this product has huge potential upside as it evolves.

Cool Tool

Together AjaxAutocomplete and DMX Google Map, it is the tool where am i was searching for.

Good that AjaxAutocomplete can now store the record ID in a hidden field. Now i am able to work fast and good with this record in StoredProcedures.

With the DMX Google Maps i will now build up my new applications in a perfect way. What i need was the looking for the X/Y-Lat and Longs. Now i get them. Also to move the marker in the map. Very good. That i can get the google facts in form-fields i can work now with the recordsets. Very good.

What i missed (is it possible)? to search only for towns in Germany. So for BERLIN i geht all the towns in the world. But need only Germany, or other lands vor example.
