Database API

Contents
Please note that caution has to be used when manipulating the Maps Marker Pro database directly via the API to avoid data loss. All calls are immediate and cannot be undone.
Also be aware please that our support does not cover detailed questions about custom developements based on this API.

Usage

To use the DB API, we first have to instantiate the class:

$db = new MMP\DB();

Maps return objects with the following properties:

id: ID
name: Name
settings: An object containing the map settings (JSON encoded)
filters: An object containing the map filters (JSON encoded)
created_by: The name of the user who created the map
created_on: The date and time when the map was created
updated_by: The name of the user who last updated the map
updated_on: The date and time when the map was last updated
markers: The number of markers that are assigned to this map (if requested)

Markers return objects with the following properties:

id: ID
name: Name
address: Address
lat: Latitude
lng: Longitude
zoom: Zoom
icon: Icon filename
popup: Popup contents
link: URL to be opened instead of showing a popup
created_by: The name of the user who created the marker
created_on: The date and time when the marker was created
updated_by: The name of the user who last updated the marker
updated_on: The date and time when the marker was last updated
maps: Array of map IDs that the marker is assigned to

Examples

Get the map with ID 1, change the name, width and height and save the changes

$map = $db->get_map(1);
$map->name = 'Car dealerships';
$settings = json_decode($map->settings);
$settings->width = 640;
$settings->height = 480;
$map->settings = json_encode($settings);
$db->update_map($map, 1);

Get the marker with ID 1, change the name, icon and popup and save the changes

$marker = $db->get_marker(1);
$marker->name = 'Dealership 1';
$marker->icon = 'car.png';
$marker->popup = '<a href="https://example.com">Dealership 1 website</a>';
$db->update_marker($marker, 1);
