Creating Path

The path means polylines, polygons, circles or special map objects (layers).

We turn to the tab "Paths".


Enter the necessary number of paths with reference to a specific map.

Field Path - a set of coordinates of points, the coordinates (Latitude, Longitude) are separated by comma (,), the points themselves - separated by a semicolon (;)

Coordinates it is convenient to choose by dragging the marker (values are substituted into the reference field in the form Current coordinates, from there you can copy and add a separator and value in the field Path), or clicking the mouse on the desired location.

In second part there will be described how draw polyline by tools and get values for path field.

Create Path by drawing tool

The new feature added - drawing tool

On map there are new controls


You just simple draw polyline by clicking on points. Double click to stop drawing.


When you finished draw, the Path field contain all coordinate values to build path.

If you wish to get some point coordinates, click on map in not drawing mode, and the field Current coordinates will contain it.


The Google's Drawing Library doesn't supports creating polyline with predefined points, therefore component not display drawing tools when you save, but in this case path is displaying as a editable polyline for more useful management. You can change it, or correct coordinates. To remove this polyline - clear path field with coordinates and save, in this case there is drawing tools appear again
