Tutorial For A New Version of the Location Map Plugin for iOS

Here is how to use the current version of the Location Map plugin.

As it stands, this combination works. You will be able to enter new points, connect already existing screens to them, zoom at will, tap to go to the screen from a related pin, and so on. There is only one catch: you have to enter the screen name through the Load Screen With Nickname field after clicking on the name of the element in the Location Title column.

You will notice that the Item Properties screen now contains fields Callout Window Tap Action and Load Screen With Nickname. These are new and I have added them although you did not require it. You will have to enter the name of the screen once again using the Load Screen With Nickname in the Item Properties window, click Save, then Close the window. This will return you to the starting Location Map screen and you will now have to refresh it in the browser in order for the changes to actually take place.

As a bonus, zooming now works perfectly.

This is a workaround, I admit, but it works, albeit the additional several clicks per item in the map.

Here are the screenshots that will make it clearer.

This is the starting point for the plugin. There are three locations already entered and they will appear on the iOS device without problems.

Let us enter a new location:

Location Map plugin -- entering the data for a new location
Location Map plugin — entering the data for a new location

Clicking on add will give us the following screen:

Location Map -- a new location has been entered
Location Map — a new location has been entered

Unfortunately, at the current version, this will not be sufficient. Clicking on

will lead to the following screen:

Location Map plugin -- the data that we entered will not work, the address of the BT item is not right
Location Map plugin — the data that we entered will not work, the address of the BT item is not right

Fortunately, we can enter the correct file address by clicking on the name of the location in the Location Name column:

Location Map plugin -- now we enter the data through the specific screen for the element
Location Map plugin — now we enter the data through the specific screen for the element

We get the following screen:

Location Map -- specific data for onw location
Location Map — specific data for onw location

Everything seems normal, however, we now have the opportunity to properly set the address of the screen to go to. Click on Select:

Location Map -- entering the screen nickname for the second time, to get it remembered
Location Map — entering the screen nickname for the second time, to get it remembered

Now we choose from a list of existing screens:

Location Map plugin for Buzztouch -- choose the same name as already entered in the field
Location Map plugin– choose the same name as already entered in the field

We get back to the screen that we started from, seemingly nothing has changed:

Location Map -- another step in the process of entering the screen nickname
Location Map — another step in the process of entering the screen nickname

Clicking on save and then on close in the upper right corner gets us back to the starting screen of the plugin:

Location Map -- the screen looks normal, but we still have to refresh it
Location Map — the screen looks normal, but we still have to refresh it

To see the effect of the changes, we now have to refresh the screen in the browser. Once you to that, you will see the same screen as in the image above, however, now clicking on the link will lead to the proper screen.

Location Map -- clicking now the link will lead to a proper screen
Location Map — clicking now the link will lead to a proper screen

Here is what we get after clicking on the link:

Location Map -- now properly leading to the screen it was supposed to lead to
Location Map — now properly leading to the screen it was supposed to lead to
