The TutsPlus.com site continues their series covering development with the Yii2 framework in this new article. This time they're focusing in on only the Ajax functionality using it an an example for their startup application interacting with Google Maps to place meeting locations.
In this Programming With Yii2 series, I'm guiding readers in use of the Yii2 Framework for PHP. In this tutorial, we'll explore the implementation of interactive pages using Ajax. Specifically, I'm going to highlight the use of Ajax in two areas of the Meeting Planner application, which I'm writing the Building Your Startup series about in parallel.
The article then starts in on showing you how to load a Google Map into the page using some of the built-in Ajax handling and integrating it into the "Create a Place" form. They show how to collect the information from the map once a location is selected and use this to update a "meeting" record on the backend. All coded needed to reproduce the system is included.
