Show a Streetmap for a post code

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

If you have a valid UK Postcode on your clipboard it will automatically show a map of the location using the browser (Internet explorer or Firefox, but can be changed) and the web site of your choice (Multimap or Streetmap, again can be changed). If there is nothing on the clipboard it will prompt you for a postcode

A little checking is done for valid post code formats some test codes are 'GU7 1DN', 'DE7 8HL', 'SG19 3RD'

Put the program in your startup to run automatically and use

Ctrl-Alt-m (Change the hotkey in the ini file if you feel like it.)

or right click on the tray-icon to activate it

Uses an INI file for configuraton and not registry keys, this means that is can be easily packaged

and distributed. (uncomment the 'FileInstall' below and correct the file path)

shows how to use 'System tray' menus, Hotkeys, execting an external program & passing it parameters

map.ini.txt

It all depends on how friendly local.live is

all you need is a

[Defaults]

Sitename=locallive

[siteurl]

locallive=http://local.live/search?????????? (whatever the search url needs to be)

in the ini file

The post code is appended to the search url and send off using the configured browser.

(maybe use a tcptrace to get hold of the search url)

If you find the correct search url, please post it here for the rest of us to share.

Sorry cannot help you with that. Given that the site is Microsoft are they likely to tell you? ;) Ant
