Writing Actionscript code

Posted on 2011-09-09

Utilizing the following code to access the Google Maps API, How would I write a program to do the following:

1. Have the user select a set of pre-determined coordinates (arrival and destination)  from drop down lists
2. Calculate and display the distance between the locations
3. Calculate mileage
4. Calculate total cost of trip based on such things as food allowance and parking fees.
I am extremely new to actionscript/flash and would like to develop an application that would allow the user to do this for an organization with over 600 locations.
import com.google.maps.LatLng;
import com.google.maps.Map;
import com.google.maps.MapEvent;
import com.google.maps.MapType;
import com.google.maps.InfoWindowOptions;
import com.google.maps.LatLngBounds;
import com.google.maps.MapMoveEvent;
import com.google.maps.overlays.Marker;
import com.google.maps.overlays.MarkerOptions;
import com.google.maps.interfaces.IPolyline;
import com.google.maps.services.*;

var dir:Directions;
var polyline:IPolyline;
var map:Map;
function setupMap()
{
	map = new Map();
	map.sensor = "true";
	map.key ="ABQIAAAAjf2cvxDuc5J1E9CrJXmy9RQrAB2acdB4QgEQtVMeGDLCPkNwtRR8XAwx0MS9MI4RYmgwJ-jCIN9QaQ";
	map.setSize(new Point(400,400));
	map.x = 0;
	map.y = 0;
	map.addEventListener(MapEvent.MAP_READY, onMapReady);
	this.addChild(map);
}
setupMap();

function onMapReady(event:Event):void
{
	dir = new Directions();
	dir.addEventListener(DirectionsEvent.DIRECTIONS_SUCCESS,onDirectionsLoaded);
	dir.load("41.496942,-87.715094 to 125 south clark, chicago, il 60603");
}
function onDirectionsLoaded(event:DirectionsEvent):void
{
	var returnedDirection:Directions = event.directions as Directions ;

	var startLatLng:LatLng = returnedDirection.getRoute(0).getStep(0).latLng;
	var endLatLng:LatLng = returnedDirection.getRoute(returnedDirection.numRoutes - 1).endLatLng;

	polyline = returnedDirection.createPolyline();

	// Remove everything from map and add back the markers and polyline 
	map.clearOverlays();
	map.addOverlay(polyline);
	map.addOverlay(new Marker(startLatLng));
	map.addOverlay(new Marker(endLatLng));
	map.setCenter(returnedDirection.bounds.getCenter(), map.getBoundsZoomLevel(returnedDirection.bounds));
}

I am using pure ActionScript if you want you can replace by Flash  components

import com.google.maps.InfoWindowOptions;
import com.google.maps.LatLng;
import com.google.maps.LatLngBounds;
import com.google.maps.Map;
import com.google.maps.MapEvent;
import com.google.maps.MapMoveEvent;
import com.google.maps.MapType;
import com.google.maps.interfaces.IPolyline;
import com.google.maps.overlays.Marker;
import com.google.maps.overlays.MarkerOptions;
import com.google.maps.services.*;

var dir:Directions;
var polyline:IPolyline;
var map:Map;
function setupMap()
{
	var holder:Sprite = new Sprite();
	var startField:TextField = createNavTextField(10);
	holder.addChild(startField);
	
	var endField:TextField = createNavTextField(startField.x + startField.width + 10);
	holder.addChild(endField);
	
	var search:SimpleButton = new SimpleButton();
	search.upState = createButtonStateState(0xcccccc);
	search.overState = createButtonStateState(0xc6c6c6);
	search.downState = createButtonStateState(0x999999);
	search.hitTestState = createButtonStateState(0x999999);
	search.useHandCursor = true;
	search.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, function(event:MouseEvent):void{
		if(dir == null){
			dir = new Directions();
		}else{
			dir.removeEventListener(DirectionsEvent.DIRECTIONS_SUCCESS,onDirectionsLoaded);
		}
		dir.addEventListener(DirectionsEvent.DIRECTIONS_SUCCESS,onDirectionsLoaded);
		dir.load(startField.text + " to " + endField.text);
	});
	
	var format:TextFormat = new TextFormat(); 
	format.align = TextFormatAlign.CENTER; 
	var label:TextField = new TextField();
	label.defaultTextFormat = format; 
	label.selectable = false;
	label.mouseEnabled = false;
	label.text = "Search";
	label.width = search.width;

	var sprite:Sprite = new Sprite();
	sprite.addChild(search);
	sprite.addChild(label);
	sprite.x = endField.x + endField.width + 10;
	sprite.y = endField.y;

	holder.addChild(sprite);

	map = new Map();
	map.key ="ABQIAAAAjf2cvxDuc5J1E9CrJXmy9RQrAB2acdB4QgEQtVMeGDLCPkNwtRR8XAwx0MS9MI4RYmgwJ-jCIN9QaQ";
	map.setSize(new Point(400,400));
	map.x = startField.x;
	map.y = startField.y + startField.height + 5;
	holder.addChild(map);

	addChild(holder);
}
//setupMap();

function createNavTextField(x:uint):TextField{
	var textField:TextField = new TextField();
	textField.autoSize = TextFieldAutoSize.NONE;

	textField.x = x;
	textField.y = 10
	textField.width = 195;
	textField.height = 22;
	return textField;
}

function createButtonStateState(color:Number):Sprite {
	var sprite:Sprite = new Sprite;
	sprite.graphics.lineStyle(2, 0x000000);
	sprite.graphics.beginFill(color);
	sprite.graphics.drawRoundRect(0, 0, 80, 22, 10);
	sprite.graphics.endFill();
	return sprite;
}

function onDirectionsLoaded(event:DirectionsEvent):void
{
	var ONE_METER:Number = 0.000621371192; // Miles 
	var returnedDirection:Directions = event.directions as Directions;
	
	var startLatLng:LatLng = returnedDirection.getRoute(0).getStep(0).latLng;
	var endLatLng:LatLng = returnedDirection.getRoute(returnedDirection.numRoutes - 1).endLatLng;
	
	polyline = returnedDirection.createPolyline();
	
	// Remove everything from map and add back the markers and polyline 
	map.clearOverlays();
	map.addOverlay(polyline);
	map.addOverlay(new Marker(startLatLng));
	map.addOverlay(new Marker(endLatLng));
	map.setCenter(returnedDirection.bounds.getCenter(), map.getBoundsZoomLevel(returnedDirection.bounds));
	
	trace("Distance: " + Number(returnedDirection.distance * ONE_METER).toFixed(1) + " mi, " + 
		Math.round(returnedDirection.duration / 60) +  " mins");

I know that I may be displaying my ignorance on Flash, but I inputted the above code in adobe Flash and saved/published it as a swf file. But when I tried to open the file, all I get is a blank screen. Please advise.
