Yes this will work for UK addresses. Only thing is, address terminology is different for different countries. What we consider city may be considered something else to Google.

For this reason, we return the JSON that is returned from Google to allow the developers to parse it for these situations. Please use this option for these scenarios to do as you please with the data returned.

No other data is available currently in our plugin, we allow the user to see the address_components portion of the Google Autocomplete object. In our next release we will allow the user to get the whole object, and do as they would like to retrieve other information such as place id, opening hours for business, etc. Everything that is available here: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/places#place_details

Hope this helps,
Neil

You are looking at where we retrieve the Google Places library javascript file : https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/places
Replacing the values in l_js_params will not make the request that you are looking for. The next step we do is add this library to our plugin:

apex_javascript.add_library
(p_name => 'js' || l_js_params
,p_directory => 'https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/'
,p_skip_extension => true);

This loads the js library. Making a call to https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/place/autocomplete/output?parameters will return XML or JSON, not a javascript library.

To get the result you are looking for, you would have to modify the jquery.ui.autoComplete file and modify the autocomplete object, or you can run javascript on the page after the autocomplete object is initialized to do this. Could you please add this to our github as feature request? https://github.com/insum-labs/apex-plugin-google-places-autocomplete
We will try to add it to an upcoming release as a built in option.

Best,
Neil

What other data can be retrieved along with the address?

Comment on Simplifying address input with Oracle APEX and Google Places Autocomplete by Scott Wesley https://www.insum.ca/simplifying-address-input-with-oracle-apex-and-google/#comment-255 Thu, 22 Mar 2018 05:00:14 +0000 https://www.insum.ca/?p=9647#comment-255 This is a very neat plugin, but I tried modifying the URL to restrict to only locations within a certain radius, but I’m obviously doing it wrong.
l_js_params := ‘?key=’ || l_api_key || ‘&libraries=places&location=-31,115&radius=5000’;
https://developers.google.com/places/web-service/autocomplete#place_types

Do you have any advice?
