[ka-Map-users] Zoom-to-search result

Hi Bob,

Do you display all the search results? If so then, you can embed a zoom
button next to the search results with its onclick method defined as follows


So when the zoom button is clicked corresponding to a search result, it will
zoom to corresponding area in the map. In my example, it will zoom to area
bounded by the co-ordinates (50,50) and (60,60). You might have to code
these values depending on ur results.

Also, Ominiverdi's blog captures a lot of other intricacies on Search. You
can see the blog
