    Default Google Map API Key not working

    I have a AA map component in a UX component. I have a google standard account. I have downloaded a google map API Key for javascript. I have inserted that key in the API Key property field in the Map comonent AND into the Project Properties field for Google Map API Key but the map will not display.
    Is there something I have failed to do??

    Hi,

    I wonder where you have inserted the key in the Map component ? In the API Key property field ? I see no such option. Also, I can find no Project Properties field for Google Map API Key. Do I have to enable some other option before these properties become visible ?

    --UPDATE--

    Sorry, I have a recent (half a year old) build of Alpha Anywhere. Most certain the API Key feature has been removed.

    --UPDATE--

    I have updated my build of Alpha Anywhere to the latest version, and now the API Key property field is shown. After inserting my Google API Key, the Google map works. Maybe you have requested the wrong API Key. Sorry about the language, but this is where I've clicked during the request of my Google API Key:

    You must have an older version of AA. As on June 2016 Google required an API key for map components. The project property and the component project now have a field for the API KeyAPI KEY 2.jpgAPI KEY.jpg

    Also, google requires an SSL for the API mapping features to work I believe.

    I think it'd be useful if you provided the version and build of Alpha that you're using along with a sample UX showing the map control and code you're calling. Takes a lot of guesswork out of the process.
