Hi guys, it's been a while since I've posted here but I've been pretty busy with school and stuf.. (:/)
Anyways, I had an idea to create a custom map widget for DX; this widget should display by default just the map of the earth (data can be obtained from google maps, mapquest, yahoo maps, take your pick) and should allow the user to type in their position via zip code, city, state, latitude/longitude, or to just pan and zoom on the map to see what they want.
I have already obtained a google maps API license key and have been trying to do some research on how to do this but I've just plain hit a wall on how to get started.
For instance, I can get a response from google's server by using the microsoft.xmlhttp object and i can get a pagesource for what APPEARS to be what I need (just code at this point ) but I have no idea how to turn that code into a viewable map.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
