  1. Hi Jeremiah,

    I’m probably a bit late to the party but with v19 I’m having a closer look at leveraging JavaScript within FileMaker. Carafe is a very nice solution and I started with the Google Maps example to get my head around whats happening.

    Carafe made it really easy to get things in place although I initially only had default black markers because I “mistakenly” used “colour” as the key.

    I do have a small issue … I’ve noticed that zooming out gets a little weird if the minimumClusterSize is set to 1 or if the set of markers is a single record. In the case of a single record presentation starts at max zoom in and as you zoom out the marker stays “fixed” in place but not true to its “position”. For default zoom I guess the current code sets the zoom to be appropriate to accommodate the supplied data set. Not sure why the marker doesn’t stay accurate.

    Cheers, Malcolm
