This article goes in detailed on laravel 10 google maps place autocomplete. If you have a question about laravel 10 google places autocomplete then I will give a simple example with a solution. Alright, let us dive into the details.

Google Autocomplete Address is a feature provided by Google Maps, the popular online mapping service. It is designed to simplify and expedite the process of entering accurate addresses by automatically predicting and suggesting addresses as users type into the search bar. When a user begins typing an address in the search bar on Google Maps or another Google product that utilizes the address autocomplete feature, Google's algorithm starts predicting and suggesting possible addresses based on the input provided. These suggestions are displayed in a dropdown list beneath the search bar, and the user can choose from the suggestions or continue typing to refine the search.

Sometimes we need to use Google Maps autocomplete api for getting correct address with latitude an longitude with laravel. i will help you step by step how to use google map api for autocomplete address in laravel app.

Step 1: Create Route

In this is step we need to create some routes for google autocomplete address example view.

routes/web.php

<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;

use App\Http\Controllers\GoogleController;

/*

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

| Web Routes

|--------------------------------------------------------------------------

|

| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These

| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which

| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!

|

*/

Route::get('google-autocomplete', [GoogleController::class, 'index']);

Step 2: Create Controller

in this step, we need to create GoogleController and add following code on that file:

app/Http/Controllers/GoogleController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

use Illuminate\View\View;

class GoogleController extends Controller

{

/**

* Write code on Method

*

* @return response()

*/

public function index(): View

{

return view('googleAutocomplete');

}

}

Step 3: Google Map API Key in Env

here, we will add new variable in .env file fo set google map api key. so let's add as bellow:

.env

GOOGLE_MAP_KEY=YOUR_GOOGLE_API_KEY

Step 4: Create Blade Files

resources/views/googleAutocomplete.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="{{ str_replace('_', '-', app()->getLocale()) }}">

<head>

<meta charset="utf-8">

$("#longtitudeArea").addClass("d-none");

});

</script>

<script>

google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', initialize);

function initialize() {

var input = document.getElementById('autocomplete');

var autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete(input);

autocomplete.addListener('place_changed', function () {

var place = autocomplete.getPlace();

$('#latitude').val(place.geometry['location'].lat());

$('#longitude').val(place.geometry['location'].lng());
