NetTalk NetMaps

Available in NetTalk Desktop, NetTalk Server and NetTalk Apps. Applies to Desktop (ABC or Clarion) apps.

Introduction

This document is for maps in Desktop apps. For maps in Webserver apps see here.

Seeing a Map in a web application is fairly common. NetTalk Maps introduces the ability to include maps (and related map functionality) directly into an ABC or Legacy Desktop Application.


Requirements

NetMaps for Desktop apps requires
Note: Map Providers use TLS for Secure communications. Read Deploying a TLS Client or Server for more details.

Terminology

NameDescription
Chaining CommandsIn some cases a sequence of commands is necessary in order to achieve the desired result. For example given a set of waypoints it may be desirable to optimize the order of the points, get text instructions to travel to each point, and also display the points on a map.  Since these commands are all asynchronous each one has to complete before the next can be initiated.

Command chaining is the concept of calling one method, with instructions to chain to the other commands when this one completes.
Latitude
Longitude
The system used to identify every position on the planet. In the NetMaps classes these values are REALs, indicating degrees.
Latitude are lines north and south of the equator. Valid values for Latitude are -90 (south pole) to +90 (north pole).
Longitude are lines west and east of the Greenwich Meridian (a line that goes through Greenwich, London, England). Valid values for Longitude are -180 to +180.
Mouse Wheel ZoomingThe Zoom of the map determines how far (or how close) the viewer is to the surface of the Map. If the application has WinEvent enabled then the zoom value of the map can be altered by simply moving the mouse over the map and rotating the mouse wheel forward or backward. If WinEvent is not available then the zoom property can be manipulated in other ways (like letting the user edit the value on the screen) to change the zoom of the map.
ProviderThe web service that provides the root mapping services is known as the Map Provider.
TilesEach map is broken into small graphic squares, based on the latitude, longitude and zoom level of the map. Each of these small squares is known as a Tile. Ultimately each map is made up of one, or more, tiles. Each change to the map location, zoom level, or map type will result in more tiles being fetched from with the cache, or from the tile provider.
ZoomThe zoom is a measure of the distance from the viewer to the map. A low zoom value (1) means the viewer is "far away" and the details on the map are very coarse. High zoom values (20) mean the user is very close to the ground, and the map is very detailed. The Valid values for zoom are 1 to 20. 1 is the "furthest" away while 20 is closest to the ground.

Features

Draw Maps

The most obvious feature in a mapping class is the ability to, well, display maps. Maps can be moved around using the mouse, zoomed and unzoomed using the mousewheel, have marker on them, be displayed in map or satellite form and in some cases provide information like traffic conditions and so on.

If a user clicks on the map then the program can identify where they clicked, and do an appropriate action (like open a form) based on that.

Markers

Markers are icons placed on the map. These markers can have an associated image, Title and description that appears in an info box, either permanently open or opens when the user hovers the mouse over the icon.

Geocoding

Geocoding is the process of taking a street address and turning it into a latitude / longitude position.

Reverse Geocoding

Reverse Geocoding is the process of taking a latitude / longitude position and turning it into a street address.

Route Optimization

Given a number of waypoints, Route Optimization is the process or ordering the waypoints so that you can travel to each one in the least amount of time.

HERE: If using the HERE provider, note that this makes use of the Waypoints Sequence Extension. This is not enabled by default. See Extensions for more information.

Route Instructions

Given a route (with one, or more destinations)  this returns the directions needed to travel from one point to the next.

Address Autocomplete

As the user type an address, the auto-complete suggests the rest of the address. This delivers not only reduced time to enter the address, but also corrects address formatting so that more consistent addresses are entered.

Searching

You can do a search on the map, looking for places of interest, specific businesses, restaurants and so on.

Providers

There are a variety of map providers on the market. NetTalk provides a consistent interface so that different providers can be used. This allows the programmer to choose which mapping service is right for them.

Usually a "consistent interface" means a "lowest common denominator" approach - you can easily switch providers, but you can't easily take advantage of features unique to one or other provider. NetTalk provides the best of both worlds, allowing for a common interface for common features, as well as allowing you to make use of individual unique features if you wish to do so.

Currently NetTalk Desktop supports the following map providers;

HERE Maps

HERE Maps were the original map providers for Nokia and are generally accepted to be one of the premier map providers available today. They have a good balance of reasonable pricing, a permissive license and a powerful, and effective, Mapping API.

The developer portal for HERE is at https://developer.here.com/.

Licensing

It is important to make sure you are using the appropriate licensing model for your application. HERE Plans are located at https://developer.here.com/plans.

Authentication

HERE makes use of a number of authentication schemes.
MethodDescription
AppId and AppCode  The original authentication system. As a HERE developer you add your project to your list of projects, and generate an App ID and App Code. This system is considered by HERE to be a legacy system and new projects will no longer generate AppCodes. Use the ApiKey system for new projects, and switch existing projects to the ApiKey system
ApiKeyThe currently preferred approach. On the HERE site generate a REST API KEY for your application. Enter this on the NetTalk Global Extension, Options tab. (Hint: use the REST ApiKey not the JavaScript API key).
AuthTokenNot supported yet.

Adding Maps Support to an Application.

Multi DLL

If this is a Multi-DLL system then add all the above to the data DLL.
In the Data DLL, on the MultiDLL tab of each (if it exists) set both options on.

Add the above to any other app(s) in the system that contain a map.
If you add them to the Exe app be sure to set the "This is part of a Multi-DLL program" switch on for each of them.

Adding Map Functionality in a Procedure

Control Template

In most cases the NetMap object will be used to display a map to the user. A control template has been provided for this purpose. To populate the control template on a window simply go to the Window Designer, go to the Control Templates pad, select the MapControls from the list available and place it somewhere on the window.

You can adjust the position and size of the Map control using the normal designer tools. If the window is resizable then be sure to set the appropriate resize options for the control as well.

Using the Class without a Window Control

The NetMaps class is not all about displaying a map. There are other features provided which are "text only". Therefore the NetMaps classes are designed with this in mind, and can be used on a window with no physical map. Some features which can be used in this text mode include Geocoding, Reverse Geocoding, Route Optimization, Route Instructions and Address AutoComplete.

Note that if you do not have Draw you can still make use of these features that work without a visual map control.

Code

The following section covers common tasks that you may want to do in embed code.

Draw map based on position and zoom

You can call the GetMap method, with a latitude, longitude and optionally a zoom factor, and the control will draw the map centered on that position. If the zoom parameter is omitted then the current zoom level for the map will be used.

A slight variation on this method allows you to enter two positions. The map then sets the zoom optimally  to that both these extremes are visible.

This is an asynchronous command. You can monitor the command queue to determine when all the tiles for the map have been retrieved.

Draw map based on address

You can call the GetMap method with a string field containing an address, and optionally a zoom. If the zoom parameter is omitted then the current zoom level for the map will be used. This is an asynchronous command. You can monitor the command queue to determine when all the tiles for the map have been retrieved.

Get address based on longitude and latitude

The GetAddress method takes a longitude and latitude and returns an address.  This is known as Reverse Geocoding. This is an asynchronous command. The result, when available, will be sent to the AddressFound method.

Get longitude and latitude based on address.

The GetLocation method takes an address, and returns the location as a latitude and longitude. This is an asynchronous command. The result, when available, will be sent to the LocationFound method.

AutoComplete a partial address

The GetAutoComplete method takes a partial address and returns a suggestion list of complete addresses. this is an asynchronous command. The result, when available, will be sent to the AutoCompleteFound method.

The suggestions will be returned in a queue form. This queue contains fields with both the complete address and each address component separately. You can parse this queue however you wish, copying the fields into your address fields, or populating a queue for a suggestion list.

Note that for entry fields, combo fields and so on if the Immediate attribute is set on the control, then an event will be generated for each keystroke. This allows you to track what the user is typing, and do the auto-complete request in the background.

Search for something on the map

Searching can be done using the GetSearch method. This method is asynchronous and the results, when retrieved, are automatically added to the Marker Queue, and displayed on the map with an icon of your choice.

Once the search is complete the SearchFound method will be called, although you typically won't need to put any code into here.

Optimize a Route

Routes work with a queue of Waypoints. The object has a property called WaypointsQueue, which is of type NetMapWaypointsQueueType. You can add points to this queue, then call several methods to make use of this queue.

The OptimizeRoute method takes this queue and passes it to the provider. The provider then determines the optimal path that incorporates all the points.

This method can chain to the GetRoute method, and from there to the GetMap method if desired.

HERE Provider:  For the HERE provider you can have up to 120 waypoints if traffic is not considered, but only up to 50 with traffic taken into consideration. If the routing mode pedestrian is used, the distance between each two of the waypoints must not be greater than 5km.

HERE Provider: If using the HERE provider, note that this makes use of the Waypoints Sequence Extension. This is not enabled by default. See Extensions for more information.

Get Route Instructions

Routes work with a queue of Waypoints. The object has a property called WaypointsQueue, which is of type NetMapWaypointsQueueType. You can add points to this queue, then call several methods to make use of this queue.

The GetRoute method takes this queue

Set the Map Type and Style

Use the SetMapType method to set the desired map type (map, satellite, traffic etc) and style (day, night, etc).

Add a Marker to the Map

Markers are added to the map by calling the SetMarker method. You can add multiple markers with multiple calls to the method. Once all the markers are added call the DrawMarkers method to draw the markers on the map.

The SetMarker method takes up to 8 parameters. The first one is the Marker ID. This is the value that will be returned when a user clicks on the icon, so is usually some unique identifier to the underlying data for the marker (a record ID in a table or queue, or whatever.)

Markers can have a description, and an image associated with them. These appear in an info box, positioned near the marker.
You can set the text for a marker using the SetMarkerDescription method. An Image can also be added using a SetMarkerImage method. You can call either method, or both, to associate with the marker.

If the Description and Image are both set to hide, then the info box will only be displayed when the user mouse-overs a marker. If either are set to unhide then the info box will appear all the time.

User clicked on a Marker Icon

When a user clicks on the map (without moving the mouse) then a call to the MapClicked method is made. This method takes two parameters, the Longitude and Latitude of the click. If the click is on an Icon then the Marker ID will be returned. This is the ID that was used when the SetMarker method was called.

If you wish to take an action then embed code into the MapClicked method, after the parent call, inspecting the value returned by the parent call.

User clicked on the map

When a user clicks on the map (without moving the mouse) then a call to the MapClicked method is made. This method takes two parameters, the Longitude and Latitude of the click.

You can embed code into this method, before or after the parent call. If after the parent call then you can also determine if the click was on an existing icon on  the map.

Monitor the CommandQueue

All the networking commands (ie calls to the provider, or cache) are executed asynchronously. There is a list of current, and outstanding commands in the CommandQueue property. When commands are added, or removed, from this queue then the CommandQueueChanged method is called.

You can embed in this method if you need to know when commands are waiting, and when there are no more commands to execute.

Get the distance between two points

The Distance method returns the "crow flies" distance between two co-ordinates. The result can be in yards, miles, meters or kilometers.

Lock map position or zoom

To prevent the user from moving the map location, using the mouse, set the LockPositionProperty property to true. To prevent the mouse wheel being used to change the zoom, set the LockZoom property to true. The map can still be moved by setting the co-ordinates directly (ie calling one of the GetMap variations mentioned above.)
 

Determine if a location is currently visible on the map

The OnMap method takes in a position, and returns true if the point is currently visible on the map, false otherwise.

Caching

Fetching the same tiles over and over from the server is undesirable for performance and cost reasons. For this reason NetMaps caches images in the CacheFolder. When the object needs a tile it will look first in the cache folder, if the tile is there then it is used, if it is not there then the request is passed to the tile provider.

The default cache folder is c:\temp\maps. This can be changed by setting the CacheFolder property to any suitable value by calling the SetCacheFolder method. If the folder does not exist then it will be created. Setting the cache folder to a Network folder means that all users can share the same cache.

The length of time a file is valid in the cache is determined by the CacheExpiryDays property. This property defaults to 30.
Traffic based tiles are automatically invalid after 15 minutes.

The cache can be disabled completely by setting the ForceNoCache property to true. This is not recommended.

To force a request to fetch the Tiles from the server, and not from the cache, set the RefreshCache property to true before the call to GetMap. It is recommended that the property be reset back to false after the request.

Template Reference

Global Template

Options / Maps Tab

Base Class
This is the base class you want to use as the default provider for this app. For example to use the HERE maps as your provider then this would be set to NetMapsHERE.
App ID
This is the Application ID as provided by the maps provider. This can be overridden at the local level, but setting it here allows you to change it more easily if necessary. This field is an expression so you can use a variable here, or a fixed value surrounded by quotes.
App Code
This is the Application Code as provided by the maps provider. See App ID above.
API Key
This is the ApiKey as provided by the MAPS provider.
Use Testing Server
If a provider differentiates between a productin server, and a testing server then you can choose which one to use here. For example the HERE provider has a Production environment and a Customer Integration Testing (CIT) envornment, used when developing and testing. To use the HERE CIT server you would turn this option on.

Control Template

Settings / Options Tab

Use Mouse Wheel Zooming
If you have WinEvent in the application, and this option is on, then the user will be able to zoom in and out of the map using the mouse wheel. If you do not have WinEvent, or this option is off, then you will need to provide the user another method (like an entry field) if you want to allow them to change the zoom.
Default Zoom
The default value to use for the zoom when the map opens. This is an expression so can be a variable.
Mark with Icon
If this option is open then the opening position of the map is automatically identified with a marker.
Default Icon
The icon to use for the opening marker.

Settings / Authentication Tab

The authentication settings are issued to you by the map provider. These settings are usually set on the global extension (and left blank here) however you can override the global settings if you wish. This is useful if you use multiple providers in the same app, and this object is not using the primary provider.

Settings / Fields Tab

The Fields tab allows you to link controls on the window with the map. If the user then navigates the map these controls will update. Conversely if the controls are altered then the map is updated as well. these settings are FIELDs not Expressions, so a single field is used for each setting. Note that the Field is set, not the control which displays that field. This allows you to update fields even if those fields are not displayed on the window.
Address
Field containing the address.
Latitude
Field containing the Latitude
Longitude
Field containing the Longitude
Zoom
Field containing the Zoom level
Icon
Field containing the icon. If this is left blank then the default icon (see Options tab above) is used.

Extension Template

It is possible to use the map class without using a screen control. This is useful for ancillary tasks like Geocoding or Reverse Geocoding which don't need a map. You can add a NetTalk Object to a procedure in the usual way to do this.

Set the BaseClass of the object to your preferred provider. For example NetMapsHERE.
On the settings tab enter any specific settings (or leave them blank to use the global settings.)

Class Reference

_NetMapsWebClient

Included in NetTalk Desktop

This class is used internally by the NetMapsBase class. The underscore prefix means it is not a generally accessible class, it's designed to be used only by the Maps class. This class is basically a NetWebClient class with only a few small tweaks. Calls to ErrorTrap and PageReceived in this object are passed to the ErrorTrap and PageReceived methods in the NetMapsBase object.

The NetMapsBase object maintains a queue of these objects, which in turn allows for multiple requests to be sent at the same time. This improves performance when fetching map tiles.

Properties

PropertyDescription
AddressQueue
&NetMapAddressQueueType
A queue of addresses returned after doing a GetAutoComplete command.
AutoCompletingA request to auto-complete a partial address is currently underway. Additional requests to autocomplete a partial address will be rejected until the current operation is finished.
CacheExpiryDays
long
The number of days a (non traffic) map tile can be in the cache and considered valid. If set to 0 then cached files never expire. The default value is 30 days. This setting does not apply to traffic tiles which will become invalid after 15 minutes. See Caching.
CacheFolder
string
The folder containing the cached tiles. Use the SetCacheFolder method to set this property.  See Caching.
ClientsQueue
&NetMapClientsQueueType
A queue of _NetMapsWebClient objects. Multiple objects means hat multiple requests can be handled at the same time. As soon as a WebClient is available a command from the CommandQueue is passed to that object for processing. This parallel processing allows for maximum performance when a number of requests (eg a number of tiles) are created at the same time.
CommandQueue &NetMapCommandQueueTypeA queue of commands. The queue declaration is in netmaps.inc. When commands need to be sent to a provider for processing, then they are added to the CommandQueue. The Next method passes waiting commands to available web client objects (ie clients in the ClientsQueue).
ForceNoCache
long
If this is set to true then incoming files will not be saved to the cache. See Caching. . This setting is not recommended.
InfoBackgroundColor
long
The color of the information box that can appear near markers.
InfoBorderColor
long
The color of the border around the information box that can appear near markers.
InfoDescriptionFontColor
long
The color of the font used for the description text in an information box.
InfoTitleFontColor
long
Tthe color of the font used for the title text in an information box.
LockPosition
long
If set to true then the map cannot be moved with the mouse. It can still be moved with calls to GetMap.
LockZoom
long
If set to true then the map cannot be zoomed with the mouse wheel. It can still be zoomed with calls to GetMap.
MapStyle
long
One of net:day, net:night. Use the SetMapType method to set this property.
MapType
long
One of Net:Map, Net:Satellite, Net:Traffic, Net:TrafficHybrid, Net:Hybrid, Net:Panoramic, Net:Weather, Net:Terrain, Net:Pedestrian  .Use the SetMapType method to set this property.
ManeuverQueue &NetMapManeuverQueueTypeA queue containing the maneuvering instructions returned by a call to GetRoute. Can be used inside the RouteFound method.
MarkerQueue &NetMapMarkerQueueType A queue of the markers currently on the map. Note that not all markers may be visible, some may be off the map boundaries.
net
&_NetMapsClient
The WebClient object that was used to fetch the request. Not usually needed, but can be inspected in any of the Found methods.
RefreshCache
long
If this is set to true then files will not be used from the cache, but will be re-fetched from the provider. If you set this to true then you will need to set it back to false when the object can use the cache again or it will continue to re-fetch files from the provider, not the cache. See Caching.
TestServerCan be true or false. Default value is false. Set to true if the account should use the provider's test server. (The HERE provider calls this the CIT server.) Often used for demo accounts and so on.
ThisPage
StringTheory
The complete response received by from the provider. Use only in methods where it is indicated to be in scope.
WaypointsQueue
&NetMapWaypointsQueueType
A queue of positions. This queue can be fed into various methods, like OptimizeRoute, GetRoute and so on.
