Zh BaiduMap, bugfixing


I’m sorry, but last release have some bugs (old calls, which is not supported). And there was some troubles when you use ajax loading map objects and define placemark as map center and add some actions for it (change icon, bounce).

Now all this bugs are fixed.

And I changed styles (width) for Map menu item

Zh BaiduMap, code review and added a lot of features


Finally I did new release.

I reviewed all code. Added module. All parts of extension – component, module and plugin use one common code.

Added new parameters for component call (menu item).

You can manage h-tag (h2 or h3) for infowin by component options.

Added ground overlays, labels for markers, dynamically loading placemarks and paths (by mootools or JQuery) or its content.

Added style support for map, and CSS and JS files loading.

For map div by default added default CSS style, which fix styles not only for component call, but also in plugin and module.

Management by group list manage not only placemarks, but also paths. And it has autocomplete group search field, show all/hide all option. Added group sorting.

In future will be added routes, map types, overlay opacity control, placemark list, panel for group list/infowin content/placemark list, traffic control and many other features.



Zh BaiduMap, new demo pages

Hi there.

I finally come back to developing extension for Baidu map.

It was too hard to find out my API key, because I lost it due to VPS re-installation and unable to connect to my Baidu account due to required phone number and don’t accept mine 🙂

Today you can see demo pages, which show component and plugin abilities.


During the next few weeks I will review my code and change it to easy support and flexible adding new features. And, of course, I’ll re-create documentation for this extension.

Best wishes,


Zh BaiduMap component and plugin is posted to JED


I posted first version (light) to JED, and now it is in validation queue

6 April 2013 – component is posted, now “There are a total of 169 extensions to go through before we review your extension for approval”
15 April 2013 – plugin is posted, now ” There are a total of 256 extensions to go through before we review your extension for approval.”

PS module is not extremely needed at the first time, but I’ll do it in 2 weeks later.


Zh BaiduMap component, I have a questions

Hi there

I’m on middle of the way to do first release of my new component – Zh BaiduMap, it is for Chinese map JavaScript API. And have a little questions.

I can do release, for example with restricted features at first – it will be just a little bit later
– without Routes – (Travel, Transit, Walk and etc)
– without drawing tool for paths
– without KML support (I didn’t find the examples yet)
– without custom map types
– without placemark list
– without placemark entering from front end

Now it is:
– map, with controls and customizable positions
– placemarks (defined by lat/lng and text address) with its custom icons
– paths (polylines, polygons, circles)
– geolocation (in admin and in frontend button)
– marker clusterer
– placemark group management

I need answer to this question, may be some link to examples – because it’s a little hard to understand Chinese.

And I have some bug requests, and didn’t know to where it post for API developers 🙂

Cheers, Dmitry
