A simple directive for adding google places autocomplete to a textbox element.
Updated to now use ng-model, should work much better in forms. Can now set an initial value using ng-model. Using the ng-model to set the textbox value does not trigger the autocomplete query.
Tested with angularjs-1.2.4
Uses optional directive parameters, so it won't work with <1.2. If people are interested I'll release a <1.2 version.
Include the required libraries
Declare a dependency on the
var app = angular;
Add the directive to a textbox
<input type="text" ng-autocomplete ng-model="autocomplete" options="options" details="details"/>
ng-model - autocomplete textbox value
details - more detailed autocomplete result, includes address parts, latlng, etc. (Optional)
options - configuration for the autocomplete (Optional)
- types: type, String, values can be 'geocode', 'establishment', '(regions)', or '(cities)'
- bounds: bounds, Google maps LatLngBounds Object, biases results to bounds, but may return results outside these bounds
- country: country String, ISO 3166-1 Alpha-2 compatible country code. examples; 'ca', 'us', 'gb'
- watchEnter: Boolean, true; on Enter select top autocomplete result. false(default); enter ends autocomplete
options =types: '(cities)'country: 'ca'
