This function creates a 'clean' google map, no route, no satellite, no light mode, no controls. Zoom functions can be created. Most of this code is done by Tom Gellar.

The map will automatically adjust to the window size (Object name of webviewer in this function must be "GMap" so the width and height can be calculated. It is not perfect yet, as google maps API retrain proportions.

I've created two buttons to zoom-in and zoom-out. Values are stored in the numeric field GMapZoom. Default of this field is set to 14 (auto enter). Set this to the size you need to be default.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it
