We are currently using the latest version of the Google maps mobile forge component. In our application we do not want to point the user to a specific location so we would like to use the Google Maps circle functionality to display a circle as marker. Is there a quick and easy option to draw a Google maps circle in version 2.1.0? Or is this something that can be implemented in a future version of the forge component?

Kind regards,

Hi Jordy,

The good news is it's not hard to do, and it's actually already done in the web version of Google Maps.

It's not a straightforward copy paste of course, but it's definitely possible to use the web implementation as a blueprint to extend the mobile component.

I have also added this feature to the backlog for future consideration but at the moment we can't guarantee it'll be included.

In the meantime if you decide to extend the component let me know if you need help.
