hello
i need to display an address on google maps, i dont have latitude or long data i just have plain address as text
my question.
i was trying to use iframe based on some old methodology, just it works erratic sometimes IE says " contents cannot be displayed in a frame"
is there still a work around for this , i need a very simple solution.

i am aware about deriving lat and long vlaues for a given address using some webservice, but right now i am looking for the most fastest and feasible solution.

is there any api in gogle maps which takes address and displays it on map

Any help will be appreciated.
thanks

I think that's pretty simple already; in what way do you hope to do even less?

i think the most easy but not a good wasy is to stick in your address in iframe. but it doesn't work sometimes.

I managed to use the geocoder and getting the lat and long. The only issue is that when a marker on address is displayed. clicking on it will not show popup like get directions, search nearby etc....



Any idea why?
