How to Enable AutoComplete with the Places API in Your API Project

 

This article covers adding autocomplete to Google Maps search boxes in WP Google Maps. This article is based on WP Google Maps v6.4.05. Autocomplete is a feature of the Google Maps Places API Web Service library in the Google Maps JavaScript API. You can use autocomplete to give your applications the type-ahead-search behavior of the Google Maps search field. When a user starts typing an address, autocomplete will fill in the rest.

 

  • Log in to the Google API Manager Console here: https://console.developers.google.com/apis/library
  • Click the Library link in the left sidebar
  • Select the project you created when you created your API Key for WP Google Maps (See the top arrow in the screenshot below)
  • Click the link to the Google Maps Places API Web Service in the listing under Google Maps APIs. (See bottom arrow in screenshot below.)
