Faster Google Maps using GMaps.js

Google Maps, like any other Google product is already easy-to-use and their API is not that complicated to work with, BUT, things can always be simpler and GMaps.js, a feature-rich jQuery plugin, helps consuming Google Maps much easier.

GMaps.js

Besides adding a standard map of a specific location, we can define the zoom level, add markers, get the location of a user (HTML5 geolocation), define routes, draw polylines and more with only few lines of code.

Replace body onunload=`GUnload()` with jQuery

If you use Google maps it’s important to use GUnload on the page’s unload event. It’s ok when you can access the body tag directly. But if you have the Google map functionality wrapped inside an ascx you need a different approach.

In fact is very easy to use jQuery to “catch” the unload event. In case anyone else needs it:

$(window).unload( function () { GUnload(); } );
