Google autocomplete places search feature is a very nice feature of google maps services. When you don’t know the exact place address and try this feature, you will see when you start typing it will show you related places results.
It will give you places address suggestion list based on the search term that you had typed in the input search box. You can integrate this autocomplete feature to search the addresses on your website or application.
Create Google Map and Autocomplete Input Box Structure
As of now, you have a google maps API key, then now we will create a google map and autocomplete the input search box with HTML elements.
Let’s create the HTML structure to hold the google map, geo-location data, and input search field. We will create a simple HTML page, but you design it as per your need.
First, we will create an input field where you will type the address. I’m giving “searchMapInput” ID to this input field to make an event action.
Then we will take blank
<div> with ID “map” to hold the google map. If you want to filter out the search result then you can display the geolocation fields.
See the following code for better clarification about the above three steps.
You can see in the above code, we also have added the google script source. In this source, you have to pass the query parameters like
callback=initMap (callback function).
Note: As I said above that make sure you also have enabled the Places API library. You can enable this library from the google API library page and you can navigate through it by clicking on the Library option from the sidebar menu.
