    Hi. I am going to try to use a form to help build some mappresspro maps. I was wondering there was anyone who has used forms with Mappress pro before or if there was any documentation out there about using the two together?

    Its not specific but I wanted to have a form with multiple check boxes next to names of points of interest. As a user clicked on the check boxes it would show the poi on a map.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated. I have decided on a forms app so I am wide open on what I use.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I know some customers use Formidable and ACF.  Maybe someone who has experience with them will reply, but I can at least give you a little background info:

    • MapPress doesn’t have any specific integration to forms plugins.  However, it can generate maps from post custom fields (on the back-end), and forms plugins can create custom fields, for example an address field.
    • There is built-in, configurable filtering functionality for the maps, as well as displaying a POI list.  If those meet your needs, they’ll be a lot easier than integrating a form plugin.
    • If you want to have the map center on a specific POI from an element external to the map, you can do it with a little JavaScript.  The maps and POIs are numbered from zero, so this would center on the first POI on the first map:
      <div onclick='mapp0.pois(0).center()'>

    I hope that helps!

    Thanks for the reply. I guess what I was asking for was a filter. I have a list of tourist attractions in Chicago. i was hoping that as someone clicked the checkbox next to each attraction a map on the right or above the list could show the appropriate marker.

    Another alternative is at lonely planet where the map highlights the marker and show a graphic when you roll over the attraction name.

    My list is built using gravity forms but i’d be happy to try some other plugin like a data table.

    Hi,

    That’s a feature I’d like to add, but it’s not currently supported by the plugin.

    Currently, if you click a marker, MapPress selects the corresponding list entry, but it doesn’t work the other way around, i.e. select a list entry and then highlight/open the marker.

    It might be possible to do that using some custom JavaScript, and if you’d like to take that route I can offer you some pointers on how it can be done.
