allow users to pick locations and rate them

Postby dutch85 » Tue Jun 01, 2010 8:25 am

I have a mapview up and running with a zoomview tool. I would lake to now allow users to pick locations by taping or typing the address in, then allow the user to rate the location and type a brief summary about their rating. That info will then be saved to an XML file or database for future users to view.

I know google already does this but my ratings are going to be based on hypothetical/comedic aspects.

You can do this by using onTouchEvent in the MapView and getting the location by passing the pixel information to Geo Point.

Additionally, you can use an overlay after to pin point the location and store the information in an Itemized Overlay as per the requirement and use the information back when overlay is tapped again by overriding onTap in the Itemized Overlay.
Hope the suggestion helps you
