Usage

Dependencies

  • Step 1. Add the JitPack repository in your project build.gradle: bash allprojects { repositories { ... maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' } } } or If Android studio version is Arctic Fox or higher then add it in your settings.gradle
dependencyResolutionManagement {
        repositories {
            ...
            maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
        }
   }
  • Step 2. Add the dependency in your app module build.gradle file bash dependencies { ... implementation 'com.github.Mindinventory:VanillaPlacePicker:X.X.X' }

Implementation

  • Step 1. Add Google MAP API KEY in your local.properties file with the same variable name as defined below (google.maps_api_key)

     google.maps_api_key=PLACE YOUR API KEY HERE
    
  • Step 2. To get Google MAP Api key from local.properties file, write below defined code in your app module build.gradle file

       android {
    ...
    defaultConfig {
    ...
    #Access Google MAP Api Key from local.properties file 
    def properties = new Properties()
    file("../local.properties").withInputStream { properties.load(it)
    #Share the key with your `AndroidManifest.xml`
    manifestPlaceholders = [ googleMapsApiKey:"${properties.getProperty('google.maps_api_key')}"]
    }
    
  • Step 3. Add below defined meta-data code to your AndroidManifest.xml:

      <application ... >
        ...

        <meta-data
            android:name="com.google.android.geo.API_KEY"
            android:value="${googleMapsApiKey}" />

      </application>
  • Step 4. Add VanillaPlacePicker Builder in to your activity class: ```bash

startActivityForResult is deprecated so better to use registerForActivityResult

 var placePickerResultLauncher =
   registerForActivityResult(ActivityResultContracts.StartActivityForResult()) { result ->
       if (result.resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK && result.data != null) {
           val vanillaAddress = VanillaPlacePicker.getPlaceResult(result.data)
       }
   }

Launch caller with Intent

 val intent = VanillaPlacePicker.Builder(this)
    .with(PickerType.MAP_WITH_AUTO_COMPLETE) // Select Picker type to enable autocompelte, map or both
    .withLocation(23.057582, 72.534458)
    .setPickerLanguage(PickerLanguage.HINDI) // Apply language to picker
    .setLocationRestriction(LatLng(23.0558088,72.5325067), LatLng(23.0587592,72.5357321)) // Restrict location bounds in map and autocomplete
    .setCountry("IN") // Only for Autocomplete
    .enableShowMapAfterSearchResult(true) // To show the map after selecting the place from place picker only for PickerType.MAP_WITH_AUTO_C
    /*
     * Configuration for Map UI
     */
    .setMapType(MapType.SATELLITE) // Choose map type (Only applicable for map screen) 
    .setMapStyle(R.raw.style_json) // Containing the JSON style declaration for night-mode styling
    .setMapPinDrawable(android.R.drawable.ic_menu_mylocation) // To give custom pin image for map marker
    .build()

 placePickerResultLauncher.launch(intent)
