Google Maps

I have a customer who has a service business, techs are sent out each day to make service calls. He wants to do the following (after all a days calls are displayed on a Map; I know how to do that part).

"Create a method of dragging and dropping the Google map pin for each call onto a dispatch board with columns that have technicians names on them."

Is this possible with Google Maps?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Interesting question.  I don't think this can be done.  I believe that Google Maps pins become invisible if you drag them off the map.  I am certain that they are invisible if you programatically position them off the map.  The map is like a desktop.  Once you drag your coffee cup over the edge and release it, ...

Suggest you use "request attention" and ask a moderator to add this to the JavaScript and jQuery Zones.  There are smart people over there.

All the best for a good New Year, ~Ray
