ZylGMaps

2.04

A useful programming tool that was especially designed to add to the applications you create Google Maps positioning functionality

Having a Google Maps view incorporated in applications is quite handy, as it will enable users to easily search and find the required place / address. ZylGMaps is an application that was designed in order to provide software developers with a way to integrate Google Maps views in their applications, with all the required parameters for map navigation.
Deployed as a Delphi and C++ Builder component, the application comes packed with a set of predefined example files and a basic documentation that will help novice users. People will be able to initiate the utility by compiling it, after which it can be added to the libraries of either Delphi or C++ Builder.
Once the component has been appended to the preferred programming environment, it will appear in the component palette, as “Zyl Soft”. Being easy to handle thanks to dragging-and-dropping features, it will be easy to adjust, by using the capabilities of the Object Inspector tool.
Users are advised to use this component with the “Stop on Delphi exception” option deactivated, in order to avoid potential breaks in all handled exceptions. The map layout that will result after enabling the component in the required applications will contain all the necessary features for browsing to a preferred location.
The Google Maps view will be accompanied by latitude and longitude entry fields, on-screen navigation arrows and buttons for toggling between the map, satellite, terrain and Earth views.
