Check out what's new in DMXzone Google Maps and Directions Add-on

In today's updates we included the DMXzone Google Maps and its Add-on, the Google Maps Directions. Our developers included new features such as auto zoom, auto center, key markers and many other so you can check out the full list below. We also added a new showcase to give you some ideas what you can do with these extensions.

Both extensions are also available in a bundle pack called Google Maps & Directions Add-on, which comes with a discount!

The Story

Sunglasses Store Demo

In this demo we used the new auto zoom and auto center features, packed in the DMXzone Google Maps. If you want to learn how to use the new features you might want to check our our latest video tutorial.


What's New in DMXzone Google Maps 1.1.0:

  • New Auto Zoom: Now you can have the value 'fit' for zoom and the map will calculate optimal zoom level for markers
  • New Auto Center: Enter also 'fit' as value for the center point latitude/longitude and you will get optimal map center for all markers
  • Key Markers - now each marker can have its own key name! This makes it easy to apply actions to it later on by its name
  • Extended the Control DMXzone Google Maps behavior by many new actions! Now you can choose to GoTo/PanTo A Marker or Show Its Info Window by specifying its key name.
  • Additional Resize Actions in the Control DMXzone Maps behavior for redrawing the map after it is resized or shown. Very useful to force map redraw when it becomes visible for example when used with DMXzone Tabs or DMXzone Accordion extensions.
  • Improved extension installation for DW CS 5.5+
