Using Google API in Lightning Component

This blog describes about,using google API in lightning component in salesforce. API key act as both a unique identifier and a secret token for authentication.

 

Using Google API in Salesforce Component

As we all know that the use of Google API is restricted in Lightning component due to some security issue, although we can use it through iframe, and also do customizations in the map. You can refer to the code given below.

 

Here is your Visualfoarce Page which you can include in lightning component later:

<apex:page  applyHtmlTag="false" applyBodyTag="false" docType="html-5.0" showHeader="false" controller="GetRoute" standardStylesheets="false">

The Controller ‘GetRoute’ used in the Visualforce Page:

public with sharing class GetRoute {

         /**

         * @license   https://store.webkul.com/license.html
         */

	public static string startpoint{get{
		startpoint = apexpages.currentpage().getparameters().get('startpoint');
		return startpoint;
	} set;}
	public static string endpoint{get{
		endpoint = apexpages.currentpage().getparameters().get('endpoint');
		return endpoint;
	} set;}
	public void nothing(){}   
}

 

Now we will switch to Lightning Component, here is the code:
