I ran into an issue were the map marker images killed my SSL cert on one of my Alpha websites.

In Chrome, Firefox ,etc, when I am displaying a Grid with a map "Alternate View", my SSL cert goes from green to yellow with the following message: "...Includes other resources that are not secure..."

Since my clients are extremely security minded, the lack of a green cert on the browser's URL was a problem.

Here's a simple Xbasic function that I put in the "Marker Icons" section of the Alternate View builder that returns a list of various map markers based on the current grid row:

function Map_Icons_0to100_Red as c (e as p)

Map_Icons_0to100_Red = "https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chst=d_map_pin_letter&chld=" + e.rowNumber + "%7cFC6355%7c000000&.png%3f"
end function

Hope this helps anyone who might need it. :)
