I searched and hadnt found this issue.

Has anyone found a way to use the Google Maps and return just the graphci map portiona nd not the space above the map where you input more info.

I want to conserve screen relestate and this space is just a waste to me. Perhaps there's another map program out there that is better suited?

Also - the default view of the Google map is the street view, is there a way for it to go straight to the Hybird (combo street and satelite view).

I tried the API thing and used the code from some of the gadgets, but you have to be able to "send" info instead of just the web address. Don't know if this makes sense. If someone can teach this old dog a new trick I'd appreciate it.

What I did:

I made a calculation field with the necessary code for the map request. Longitude and latitude fields are substituted into this calculation.

Then in a script, with the Troi File plug-in I create an html file with this calcfield as the content. This file is placed in the FileMaker directory, using the Get ( FileMakerPath ) function and it is the target of the webviewer.

The script ends by resetting the WebViewer.
