Google Street View help

Hi all,

We are trying to give a streetview option for our real estate/property site.

Now I have tried using the google code and its working for geolocating the map position, but unfortunately its not working with the street view (link below)

the code I am using is as follows;

<script src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?v=3.exp&sensor=false"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var geocoder;
        var map;

        function getURLParameter(name) {
            return decodeURIComponent((new RegExp('[?|&]' + name + '=' + '([^&;]+?)(&|#|;|$)').exec(location.search) || [, ""])[1].replace(/\+/g, '%20')) || null
        }

        function initialize() {

            var fenway = new google.maps.LatLng(42.345573, -71.098326);
            var mapOptions = {
                zoom: 16,
                center: fenway,
                mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
            }

            var address = '<%= GetPropertyForAddress() %>';
            geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();

            if (getURLParameter("tp")==="st") {

                //var panoramaOptions = {
                //    position: fenway,
                //    pov: {
                //        heading: 34,
                //        pitch: 10
                //    }
                //};

                //map = new google.maps.StreetViewPanorama(document.getElementById('streetview-canvas'), panoramaOptions);

                geocoder.geocode({ 'address': address }, function (results, status) {
                    if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) {
                        map = new google.maps.StreetViewPanorama(document.getElementById("streetview_canvas"));
                        map.setPosition(results[0].geometry.location);
                        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
                            position: results[0].geometry.location,
                            map: map,
                            title: address
                        });
                    } else {
                        alert("Geocode was not successful for the following reason: " + status);
                    }
                });

                document.getElementById('map-canvas').style.display = 'none';
            }
            else {

                map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map-canvas'), mapOptions);
                geocoder.geocode({ 'address': address }, function (results, status) {
                    if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) {
                        map.setCenter(results[0].geometry.location);
                        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
                            map: map,
                            position: results[0].geometry.location
                        });
                    } else {
                        alert('Geocode was not successful for the following reason: ' + status);
                    }
                });

                document.getElementById('streetview-canvas').style.display = 'none';
           }

                   

         
        }

        google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', initialize);
    </script>

I don't see anywhere that you are assigning the street view div to Google maps, just the map-canvas

Gary,

Thanks for the reply.

I'm not 100% sure what you mean?  

I planned to have a page that would handle both maps and street view. The code 'should' display dependent upon the query object (if mp then it will show the maps and if st it will show the street view).

It should then load the relevent map and then hide the maps div

 if (getURLParameter("tp")==="st") {

                //var panoramaOptions = {
                //    position: fenway,
                //    pov: {
                //        heading: 34,
                //        pitch: 10
                //    }
                //};

                //map = new google.maps.StreetViewPanorama(document.getElementById('streetview-canvas'), panoramaOptions);

                geocoder.geocode({ 'address': address }, function (results, status) {
                    if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) {
                        map = new google.maps.StreetViewPanorama(document.getElementById("streetview_canvas"));
                        map.setPosition(results[0].geometry.location);
                        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
                            position: results[0].geometry.location,
                            map: map,
                            title: address
                        });
                    } else {
                        alert("Geocode was not successful for the following reason: " + status);
                    }
                });

                document.getElementById('map-canvas').style.display = 'none';
            }
            else {

Use this as your code

var address = '42 Acre Street, Denton, Manchester, M34 2AL';

geocoder.geocode({ 'address': address }, function (results, status) {
	if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) {
		address=results[0].geometry.location
		var panoramaOptions = {
			position: address,
			pov: {
				heading: 34,
				pitch: 10
			}
		};
		var panorama = new  google.maps.StreetViewPanorama(document.getElementById("streetview-canvas"),panoramaOptions);

	} else {
		alert("Geocode was not successful for the following reason: " + status);
	}
})
