Installation and usage

As a start you need to install the plugin. After installing the last version, just follow the next steps:

  1. Fill the API Key input in the plugins tab.

  2. Put the Google Autocomplete element on the page.

  3. (IMPORTANT) Be careful about the first field in the plugin element. You need to check the checkbox “Map element present on the page?” if you are using a standard bubble Map element on the same page as Google Autocomplete element. If you are not using the standard Map element just leave it unchecked.

  4. (IMPORTANT) Input ID must be filled also. For this, you need to add an input element on the same page, give it an ID, after that you can use the ID in the Google Autocomplete element.

  5. (OPTIONAL) Place Type, just choosing the type of searching content. It can be the following:

  6. (OPTIONAL) Results Language, language for the results: and many more languages.

  7. (OPTIONAL) Country, the country where to search for results: and many more countries, about 246.

Countries parameter can be only a bubble list of text, for example, from the Bubble database, extracted using the “Do A Search” method.

Latitude, Longitude, Radius can be used for an area of search.
