    googlemap functionality not working properly inside panelgrid

    Ajit Singh Newbie

      Hi All,

               I have to display google map in a hotel search page.so i have the code to display search results for hotel. Now i have to also  implement a functionality to display hotels in google map. I have the googleMap.xhtml code which is working perfectly fine when i run it individually. But i have to integrate the same code in searchresult page so for that I am including googleMap.xhtml page. Now the google map is being displayed but all functionalities are not working properly ..like when i click on hotel images which are coming from  bean then  information about these hotels are not being displayed on google map. Is there any other way to use google map functionality in richfaces?


      <h:panelGrid id="test2" rendered="#{hotelSearchResultsBean.renderGmap}"  style="float:right;margin-top:10px;">


                   <ui:include src="/pages/hotel/include/googleMap.xhtml" />

          If you talking about RichFaces 3.3.3 - gmap component just do not suppots reRendering. it should be updated using it's js object as shown at livedemo.


          If talking about RF 4.4 - do not remember that after any rendering of that area with map you should reinitialize attached JS objects. In other case it will not work for sure. And be carefull with memory leaks in that case.

            Thnx Ilya for the reply.. yes m using richfaces 3.3.3 and the problem is that gmap is being displayed but the JS code inside googleMap.xhtml is not working at all.

              googleMap.xhtml code:


              <ui:composition xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"









              .optionList {

                  height: 30px;




                  <script type="text/javascript">

                Hi All,

                              It wont work inside panelgrid but when u take it outside <a4j:form >then gmap will be rendered properly.
