Extracting data from google maps

Recommended Posts


I have calculation to show a google route map in a web viewer container. From this I extract the distance using GetLayoutObjectAttribute. A couple of issues:

1. Is there any way I can freeze the result, as each time I go to record the web page refreshes. 

2. The distance only calculates if the object is visible making it unusable in another calculation or a different layout.


In both instances I probably doing something wrong with storage but if I store the result, the calculation stays empty. Any thoughts?

A stored calculation will recalculate only when one of the referenced fields is modified. You didn't post your calculation, and I am guessing it does not reference any fields. Perhaps you would be better served by a Number field, populated by a script?

Hi Comment

As usual I think you are right. - the calculation is referring to the URL 

anyway here is the calculation I am using.


GPOcode is the object with the "address of the web viewer" 


Let([A=GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( "GPOcode" ; "content");

["<div class="altroute-rcol altroute-info"> <span>";"¶"];
