Setup Pins from the database (Form Setting)

There are nine settings for a map pin:

  • Name - This a name for the pin configuration. It is used to provide a simple explanation for the pin settings
  • Records to show - Use the Query Builder to select the records you wish to appear on the map as pins. From these records you will later need to choose a address / location field and pin label field, in order to place these records on the map.
  • Address / Location Field - The map form will automatically apply a filter to the records found in the records to show option and only return the results that will fit on the portion of the map currently being displayed. If an address field is used to place the record on the map then the geolocation feature must be enabled.
  • Pin Label Field Field - The pin label will be displayed when the end user places their mouse cursor over the pin. Typically the records title field or the address / location field are used.
  • Style - WorkXpress provides several prebuilt pin graphics that can be chosen to be displayed on the map. If the custom option is selected then the image uploaded will be placed on the map with the bottom center of the image placed at the point on the map for the records longitude and latitude.
  • Cluster Group - When many pins are displayed in close proximity to each other it is possible for the map to cluster the pins together with a circle icon and a number representing the number of pins located under it. The cluster group selected will determine the color of the circle based on the number of pins contained in the cluster. If no cluster group is selected for a pin configuration then the pins returned by the query will not be clustered. If the same cluster group is selected for more than one pin configuration then when clustering occurs it will combine the pins from all the queries.
  • Radius - When displaying a pin on the map it is possible to configure a circle to be drawn around the pin. This expression determines the size of the circle around the pin.
  • Radius Units - This selection tells the map form what units the pin radius is using. Supported unit for the radius is Miles, Kilometers, and Meters.
  • Radius Color - This is the color used for the radius. The radius is drawn as a circle in this color with a shading of this color inside the circle.
