how can i add a marker to the map and set its position by a click event?
Can’t be done directly in wappler I’m afraid, would need custom JS
it will be nice if it was added to wappler as its not that hard.
and its quite useful when you want the user to point a location on the map
Yes, it was discussed here.
At present you would have to add your own listener (well documented by google)
You could always add it as a feature request
That is not the same issue. im not loading any dynamic data. i want to add a simple marker. same as when you add it from the element menu and set its lat and long from a geo element.
Is this what you would like to achieve? The address is echoed to a text input while the lat and lon are echoed to hidden fields.

but the marker should not be shown all the time. only when a button is clicked for example.
It was raised in that post
Not entirely. We modified a library from GitHub.
We used Wappler as the code editor though!
As far as I know this is not possible in Wappler directly? Whichever route is chosen some customisation will be required.
I’m sure we did this by accident… Let me have a look a little later and see if we still have that version on file…
It’s quite well documented:
Accessing Arguments in UI Events (scroll down a little)
Some sort of database write-back and query refresh could lead to some interesting possibilities.
Thats alot of overhead for this type of stuff.
