    Google Maps

    Hi All,

    I am trying to figure out a way to display google maps within my c++ project. I am hoping to be able to read in points from a database and display them on the map inside of my program.

    I am completely new to the google maps api, but it seems to be well documented. My question is: How would I get my c++ program to display the map and allow the user to interact with it(i.e. move the map around to different locations)?

    Well you seem to be one step ahead of everyone else here, because you've commented on how good the documentation is.

    Surely it covers the basics of actually requesting some data for say some lat-long coordinate (I guess).
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    I suspect the easy way would be to start an http session in your C++ project, and provide the URL needed for the map you want to display to go along with that http session.

    Well, I misspoke about official documentation. Some people that I have worked with in the past have examples and some of the things I'd hope to accomplish.

    Why not ask them then?
