Adding Multiple Instances of Google Places on Same Page

I'm looking to include 2 instances of Google Places auto-complete on the same page. Looking to setup an input for a Pickup Location and an input for a Dropoff Location.

I'm assuming it has to do with the ID of the input element, but even when I changed it to a class, it still wasn't working.

This is what I currently have, and it works for the first field, but I can't figure out how to get a second input field to auto complete, or even show any signs of being anything other than a plain input text field.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=true&libraries=places"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
  var placeSearch,autocomplete;
  function initialize() {
    autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete(document.getElementById('autocomplete'), { types: [ 'geocode' ] });
    google.maps.event.addListener(autocomplete, 'place_changed', function() {
      fillInAddress();
    });
  }
  function fillInAddress() {
    var place = autocomplete.getPlace();

    for (var component in component_form) {
      document.getElementById(component).value = "";
      document.getElementById(component).disabled = false;
    }

    for (var j = 0; j < place.address_components.length; j++) {
      var att = place.address_components[j].types[0];
      if (component_form[att]) {
        var val = place.address_components[j][component_form[att]];
        document.getElementById(att).value = val;
      }
    }
  }
</script>

HTML

<body onload="initialize()">
<form action="" method="post" name="theform" id="theform">
    <label>Pickup Location</label>
    <input type="text" name="PickupLocation" onfocus="geolocate()" placeholder="Enter your pickup location" id="autocomplete" autocomplete="off" />

    <label>Dropoff Location</label>
    <input type="text" name="DropoffLocation" onfocus="geolocate()" placeholder="Enter your dropoff location" id="autocomplete2" autocomplete="off" />
</form>
</body>

Answer

It is simply problem.
You using two IDs "autocomplete" and "autocomplete2"
but initialized only ID "autocomplete".
Try add this code to initialize().

Javascript

autocomplete2 = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete(document.getElementById('autocomplete2'), { types: [ 'geocode' ] });
google.maps.event.addListener(autocomplete2, 'place_changed', function() {
  fillInAddress();
});
Answer

A more dynamic approach. You don't need to initialise your element ids.

var inputs = document.getElementsByClassName('query');

var options = {
  types: ['(cities)'],
  componentRestrictions: {country: 'fr'}
};

var autocompletes = [];

for (var i = 0; i < inputs.length; i++) {
  var autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete(inputs[i], options);
  autocomplete.inputId = inputs[i].id;
  autocomplete.addListener('place_changed', fillIn);
  autocompletes.push(autocomplete);
}

function fillIn() {
  console.log(this.inputId);
  var place = this.getPlace();
  console.log(place. address_components[0].long_name);
}
<script src="https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?v=3.exp&libraries=places&key=AIzaSyC0Laj_Wk3kjFM-S8mYljc-WWCeesoDA_M"></script>

<input id="query-0" class="query" type="text"/>
<input id="query-1" class="query" type="text"/>
<input id="query-2" class="query" type="text"/>

Answer

Here is my solution, but needs jQuery

var autocomplete = {};
		var autocompletesWraps = ['test', 'test2'];

		var test_form = { street_number: 'short_name', route: 'long_name', locality: 'long_name', administrative_area_level_1: 'short_name', country: 'long_name', postal_code: 'short_name' };
		var test2_form = { street_number: 'short_name', route: 'long_name', locality: 'long_name', administrative_area_level_1: 'short_name', country: 'long_name', postal_code: 'short_name' };

		function initialize() {

			$.each(autocompletesWraps, function(index, name) {
			
				if($('#'+name).length == 0) {
					return;
				}

				autocomplete[name] = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete($('#'+name+' .autocomplete')[0], { types: ['geocode'] });
					
				google.maps.event.addListener(autocomplete[name], 'place_changed', function() {
					
					var place = autocomplete[name].getPlace();
					var form = eval(name+'_form');

					for (var component in form) {
						$('#'+name+' .'+component).val('');
						$('#'+name+' .'+component).attr('disabled', false);
					}
					
					for (var i = 0; i < place.address_components.length; i++) {
						var addressType = place.address_components[i].types[0];
						if (typeof form[addressType] !== 'undefined') {
						  var val = place.address_components[i][form[addressType]];
						  $('#'+name+' .'+addressType).val(val);
						}
					}
				});
			});
		}

Answer

I couldn't get Joseph's solution to work above, as the second input field would still fill in the first input field, so this is based on his answer with some amendments.

I have two address form on the same page, and they display dynamically depending on the customer's previous selection, so I started by creating a unique id, then add the usual fields.

<div id="<?php if( isset( $postcode_context ) && $postcode_context == "collection") { echo "collections-autocomplete-fields";} else {echo "autocomplete-fields";}?>" class="new-address-fields">
    <div class="fields">
    <div class="row form-group">
        <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6">
            <label for="Address1">Building Number/Name *</label>
            <input type="text" class="form-control field" name="Address1" id="street_number">
        </div>
        <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6">
            <label for="Address2">Address line 1 *</label>
            <input type="text" class="form-control field" name="Address2" id="route">
        </div>
    </div>
    <div class="row form-group">
        <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6">
            <label for="Address2">Address line 2</label>
            <input type="text" class="form-control field" name="Address2" id="route_two">
        </div>
        <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6">
            <label for="Town">Town *</label>
            <input type="text" class="form-control field" name="Town" id="locality">
        </div>
    </div>
    <div class="row form-group">
        <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6">
            <label for="County">County</label>
            <input type="text" class="form-control field" name="County" id="administrative_area_level_1">
        </div>
        <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6 wideField">
            <label for="Postcode">Postcode *</label>
            <input type="text" class="form-control field" name="Postcode" id="postal_code">

            <input type="text" class="form-control field" name="Postcode" id="country">
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

With jQuery as follows:

googlePlaces: function ($context) {
        var placeSearch, autocomplete;
        var componentForm = {
            street_number: 'short_name',
            route: 'long_name',

            postal_code: 'short_name'
        };

        var componentForm2 = {
            street_number: 'short_name',

            administrative_area_level_1: 'long_name',
            country: 'long_name',
            postal_code: 'short_name'
        };

        function initAutocomplete() {
            // Create the autocomplete object, restricting the search to geographical
            // location types.
            autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete(

            // When the user selects an address from the dropdown, populate the address
            // fields in the form.
            autocomplete.addListener('place_changed', fillInAddress);
            autocomplete2.addListener('place_changed', fillInAddress2);
        }

        function fillInAddress() {
            // Get the place details from the autocomplete object.
            var place = autocomplete.getPlace();

            for (var component in componentForm) {
                document.getElementById(component).value = '';
                document.getElementById(component).disabled = false;
            }

            // Get each component of the address from the place details
            // and fill the corresponding field on the form.
            for (var i = 0; i < place.address_components.length; i++) {
                var addressType = place.address_components[i].types[0];
                if (componentForm[addressType]) {

            for (var component in componentForm2) {
                document.getElementById(component).value = '';

First time answering a question in full on here, so hopefully I have met the criteria. Thanks to Joseph, who this answer is based on.

Answer

I have wrote a blog about this here -> https://lindarawson.com/adding-multiple-instances-of-google-places-on-same-page/

I took all of your answers, and made my own answer.

In the loading function of the page:


    $(document).ready(function() {
      var autocompletesWraps = ['facility_address', 'source_address'];
      createGeoListeners(autocompletesWraps);
    });

Then you have four functions:


    function createGeoListeners(autocompletesWraps) {
            var options = {types: ['geocode']};
            var inputs = $('.autocomplete');
            var autocompletes = [];
            for (var i = 0; i < inputs.length; i++) {
                var autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete(inputs[i], options);
                autocomplete.inputId = inputs[i].id;
                autocomplete.parentDiv = autocompletesWraps[i];
                autocomplete.addListener('place_changed', fillInAddressFields);
                inputs[i].addEventListener("focus", function() {
                    geoLocate(autocomplete);
                }, false);
                autocompletes.push(autocomplete);
            }
        }
        function fillInAddressFields() {
            $('.googleerror').removeClass('is-valid is-invalid');
            var place = this.getPlace();
            for (var i = 0; i < place.address_components.length; i++) {
                var addressType = place.address_components[i].types[0];
                var val = place.address_components[i].long_name;
                //console.log("address Type " + addressType + " val " + val + " pd " + this.parentDiv);
                $('#'+this.parentDiv).find("."+addressType).val(val);
                $('#'+this.parentDiv).find("."+addressType).attr('disabled', false);
            }
        }
        function geoLocate(autocomplete) {
            if (navigator.geolocation) {
                navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(function(position) {
                    var geolocation = {
                        lat: position.coords.latitude,
                        lng: position.coords.longitude
                    };
                    var circle = new google.maps.Circle({
                        center: geolocation,
                        radius: position.coords.accuracy
                    });
                    autocomplete.setBounds(circle.getBounds());
                });
            }
        }
        function gm_authFailure() { 
            $('.gm-err-autocomplete').addClass('is-invalid');
            swal("Error","There is a problem with the Google Maps or Places API","error");
        };

Hope this helps you.

Answer

This solution works but has one problem:

var theFields = ['field1','field2','field3','field4'];
function initialize() {
// Create the autocomplete object, restricting the search
// to geographical location types.
 for (i=0;i<cityFields.length; i++){

      autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete((document.getElementById(cityFields[i])),
  { types: ['geocode'] })
  }

// When the user selects an address from the dropdown,
// populate the address fields in the form.
google.maps.event.addListener(autocomplete, 'place_changed', function() {
fillInAddress();
});
}

the only problem for this though is that field2 won't load the script if field1 does not exist on the page. For example, as in my case, the first 2 fields exist on one page, the other 2 exist on another, but the script is added to the header (wordpress header)...

      autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete(
          (document.getElementById('autocomplete')),

          { types: ['geocode'], componentRestrictions:countryRestrict });


      google.maps.event.addListener(autocomplete, 'place_changed', function() {

        fillInAddress();

      });

      autocomplete2 = new 

    google.maps.places.Autocomplete(document.getElementById('autocomplete2'), { 
    types: [ 'geocode' ] });

      });


}
Answer

I had a problem with multiple autocomplete on one page, one component created the autocomplete and I had to call it twice

the problem was: the autocomplete worked only for the first input and not the second

What solved it for me was: pass as a prop to the component a "uniqueId", and in the component, in the 'place_changed' event listener:

    const input = document.getElementById(uId);
    let autocomplete = new window.google.maps.places.Autocomplete(input);
    autocomplete.setComponentRestrictions({ "country": "il" });
    autocomplete.addListener("place_changed", () => { handlePlaceChange(autocomplete) })

I'm currently busy so if anyone needs furher info contact me [email protected]
