How do I draw a polyline on a map between two marker addresses?
Don’t think this is possible in the Maps component. I would look at Google Maps API for static images, or other 3rd party APIs
Hello, as @Rozza has mentioned, in the map component you can display the markers and change its design but if you’d like to add a polyline or other feature, you can do it through 3d party or Google maps API.
Hello , Thank you for your replies, i’m learning with you.
Now, as @Rozza has mentionned, i tried the Google maps static API, but the problem is that the response from the API is just an image and not a JSON object so i couldn’t acees the data directly from adalo.
Thanks in advance.
That’s how I imagined it would work. Google API returning an image.
You may need a 3rd party like make.com so that you don’t generally expose your api key.
It likely won’t be quick. Can you do it once, then save the image as base64 in a text field?
As with anything there are many ways to achieve the same outcome. I have started you in the right path, I can’t tell you step by step your perfect solution on the forum.
No worries, you can then use an API other than Google maps to get the data and achieve the feature that you’d like to implement.
I did this once using Make (multiple points so had to use Adalo Collections API to get the route):
Then there are 2 options:
- you can store URL in Adalo collection, BUT you will have to spend Google API credits every time you view the map. Also for a webapp it is very easy to get your api key as @Rozza mentioned.
- you store the image itself on some cloud storage, and store image URL in Adalo collection record.
An alternative to Google Maps is Mapbox (Static Images API | API Docs | Mapbox), but in my opinion their API is more complicated and you need to use encoded polylines to display the path.
Best regards, Victor.
Thank you everybody for your replies
