Changing Appearance

How do you change the layouts when we rotate the iPad from Horizontal to Vertical?

The next section describes how this is done in the GoMaps layouts specifically, but for a general discussion of this technique, check this out: Slide-a-Block for FMGo

Working with layouts in GoMaps

The layouts in the GoMaps mobile file have some complexity to them in order to hide and reveal objects as the iPad is rotated. Whenever you're working on these layouts be sure you have a backup of your file in case you make a change you can't seem to undo.

This video will give you an overview of how we negotiate the rotation-objects on these layouts: Working with Layouts.

Changing which fields display in the popover

You can configure which property details show up when you click on a property in the map. Learn more by reading about popovers.

Tool Tips

To change the value shown when you hover over a pin (before you click on it), edit the field "gm_MapData" in your properties table and change the field used in position two, after the comment "Marker Data: Position 1 - 5" Whatever is in position two will be used in the tool tip. Don't forget that you'll need to refresh the map after making changes to this field.

Changing Other Areas

In addition to just working on the main layouts, some of the other things you may want to change are in scripts or configured on their own layouts.
