hello
i need to display an address on google maps, i dont have latitude or long data i just have plain address as text
my question.
i was trying to use iframe based on some old methodology, just it works erratic sometimes IE says " contents cannot be displayed in a frame"
is there still a work around for this , i need a very simple solution.

i am aware about deriving lat and long vlaues for a given address using some webservice, but right now i am looking for the most fastest and feasible solution.

is there any api in gogle maps which takes address and displays it on map

Any help will be appreciated.
thanks

is there any other easier way of doing this.

Thanks

I think that's pretty simple already; in what way do you hope to do even less?

i think the most easy but not a good wasy is to stick in your address in iframe. but it doesn't work sometimes.

I managed to use the geocoder and getting the lat and long. The only issue is that when a marker on address is displayed. clicking on it will not show popup like get directions, search nearby etc....



Any idea why?
