googleMaps in JavaScript

When working with dynamic maps, there are two JavaScript files which are automatically loaded into the front-end (although this can be disabled) whenever a map is included on the page. The files will be copied, and loaded from the public cpresources folder.

   - dynamicmap.js
   - googlemaps.js

The googlemaps.js file is the main entry point. It allows you to create a new map, load an existing map, or initialize one or more map containers. The globally-accessible googleMaps JavaScript object will be automatically preloaded by this file.

The dynamicmap.js file contains a DynamicMap JavaScript model, which is used to generate individual DynamicMap objects for each map. Each one is a chainable instance of a fully functional Google Map.

Defer to googlemaps.js

You will virtually never need to interact with the DynamicMap model directly. Use the googleMaps object to create (or access) a DynamicMap model, then simply chain methods from within the DynamicMap model.
