Thanks, that deals with the positional parameters nicely.
As for a patch... how about adding this to kaMap.initialize after
dealing with the standard parameters:
if (arguments.length > 3 && arguments != '')
szURL = szURL + sep + arguments;
sep = "&";
If there is a fourth parameter, assume it is additional
properly-formatted query parameters, so just tack it onto the end of the
query string. Initialize can then be called with:
myParams = 'myparam1=myvalue1&myparam2=myvalue2&...';
myKaMap.initialize( map, extents, cps, myParams);
myKaMap.initialize( map, extents, cps );
so existing code doesn't break.
