Blank map in mashup -- need to pass id in results/details?



OK -- so I'm having issues with the map box being blank in a mashup.

I've set up a search datapage as instructed in the how-to on the Caspio support site. Everything appears to be in order, including the API key.

However, when I'm copying/pasting the code snippets from the support page for the results screen AND the details screen, I notice that the code includes the \"unique\" record ID. Do I need to add that in the field selection screen for the results and details sections of the datapage? Normally, I wouldn't display that to users, but does it need to be there anyway for the map to work?

Right now, my map is blank.

OK -- I can't provide a link because we have a corporate paid (???) Google Maps API key in the code. But I can at least walk through what I've done, per the instructions on this page:

http://www.caspio.com/support/mashups/m ... ion-v4.asp

[*:3qw61cba]1.1 - I enabled the parameters.

[*:3qw61cba]1.2 - I hid the page in an HTML block at the bottom of the Configure Search Fields section.

[*:3qw61cba]1.3 - I added the HTML block at the bottom of the Configure Search Results section. I also added the ID to the this section -- it wasn't there before. I made sure all the fields from the code we're supposed to copy matched the fields I was using in the search form.

[*:3qw61cba]1.4 - I added the HTML block at the bottom of the Configure Details section, making sure to change all the fields to match my table, as in 1.3. I also managed to add the ID to this section to render -- it also wasn't there before. Not sure if the ID is needed to render in these results and details sections so that the map code can pick it up -- Caspio needs to clarify this.

[*:3qw61cba]2.1 - Copied and pasted the deploy code for the proper datapage.

[*:3qw61cba]2.2.1 - Copied and pasted the Google API key and mashup code below the deploy code, as instructed.

Here's the code I posted, sans the Google API key:

<script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"http://bridge.caspio.net/scripts/e1.js \"></script> <script type=\"text/javascript\" language=\"javascript\">try{f_cbload(\"fakepageid\",\"http:\");}catch(li){;}</script> <div id=\"cxkg\">Click <a href=\" http://bridge.caspio.net/dp.asp?AppKey=fakepageid\">here</a> to load this <a href=\" http://caspio.com\">Caspio Bridge DataPage</a>.</div>

<script src=\"http://maps.google.com/maps?file=api&v=2.x&key=fakekey\" type=\"text/javascript\"></script>

<script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"http://bridge.caspio.net/scripts/caspio_mashupsv4.js\"></script>

I DID position the

code ABOVE the search page, but it doesn't render at all. Just an empty box. Same with the results and details pages.

What's going on here?

Well for one I don't think such a license exists for a google maps API key and two even If I were to know what the key was it wouldn't help me in any way as it relates specifically for your domain only :D

So without seeing the code (assuming all instructions were followed) and the code is correct you are absolutely right (you should see a map (at least a blank one without any plots on it)). Sometimes it might happen that there are other issues with html currently on the page you are trying to embed the map. Since I can't see the code to tell you the exact issue the only suggestion I can make is to put the map on its own blank html page and see what happens....if its still blank then we have some coding issues.
