Autocomplete Data (new)

AutocompleteRequest interface

google.maps.places.AutocompleteRequest interface

Request interface for AutocompleteSuggestion.fetchAutocompleteSuggestions.

input
Type:  string
The text string on which to search.
includedPrimaryTypes optional
Type:  Array<string> optional
Included primary Place type (for example, "restaurant" or "gas_station").

A Place is only returned if its primary type is included in this list. Up to 5 values can be specified. If no types are specified, all Place types are returned.
includedRegionCodes optional
Type:  Array<string> optional
Only include results in the specified regions, specified as up to 15 CLDR two-character region codes. An empty set will not restrict the results. If both locationRestriction and includedRegionCodes are set, the results will be located in the area of intersection.
inputOffset optional
Type:  number optional
A zero-based Unicode character offset of input indicating the cursor position in input. The cursor position may influence what predictions are returned. If not specified, defaults to the length of input.
language optional
Type:  string optional
The language in which to return results. Will default to the browser's language preference. The results may be in mixed languages if the language used in input is different from language, or if the returned Place does not have a translation from the local language to language.
locationBias optional
Type:  LocationBias optional
Bias results to a specified location.

At most one of locationBias or locationRestriction should be set. If neither are set, the results will be biased by IP address, meaning the IP address will be mapped to an imprecise location and used as a biasing signal.
locationRestriction optional
Type:  LocationRestriction optional
Restrict results to a specified location.

At most one of locationBias or locationRestriction should be set. If neither are set, the results will be biased by IP address, meaning the IP address will be mapped to an imprecise location and used as a biasing signal.
origin optional
Type:  LatLng|LatLngLiteral optional
The origin point from which to calculate geodesic distance to the destination (returned as PlacePrediction.distanceMeters). If this value is omitted, geodesic distance will not be returned.
region optional
Type:  string optional
The region code, specified as a CLDR two-character region code. This affects address formatting, result ranking, and may influence what results are returned. This does not restrict results to the specified region.
sessionToken optional
Type:  AutocompleteSessionToken optional
A token which identifies an Autocomplete session for billing purposes. Generate a new session token via AutocompleteSessionToken.

The session begins when the user starts typing a query, and concludes when they select a place and call Place.fetchFields. Each session can have multiple queries, followed by one fetchFields call. The credentials used for each request within a session must belong to the same Google Cloud Console project. Once a session has concluded, the token is no longer valid; your app must generate a fresh token for each session. If the sessionToken parameter is omitted, or if you reuse a session token, the session is charged as if no session token was provided (each request is billed separately).

We recommend the following guidelines:
  • Use session tokens for all Place Autocomplete calls.
  • Generate a fresh token for each session.
  • Be sure to pass a unique session token for each new session. Using the same token for more than one session will result in each request being billed individually.

AutocompleteSessionToken class

google.maps.places.AutocompleteSessionToken class

Represents a session token used for tracking an autocomplete session.

Access by calling const {AutocompleteSessionToken} = await google.maps.importLibrary("places"). See Libraries in the Maps JavaScript API.

AutocompleteSessionToken
AutocompleteSessionToken()
Parameters:  None
Creates a new instance of AutocompleteSessionToken.

AutocompleteSuggestion class

google.maps.places.AutocompleteSuggestion class

An Autocomplete suggestion result.

Access by calling const {AutocompleteSuggestion} = await google.maps.importLibrary("places"). See Libraries in the Maps JavaScript API.

fetchAutocompleteSuggestions
fetchAutocompleteSuggestions(autocompleteRequest)
Parameters: 
Return Value:  Promise<{suggestions:Array<AutocompleteSuggestion>}>
Fetches a list of AutocompleteSuggestions.
placePrediction
Type:  PlacePrediction optional
Contains the human-readable name for the returned result. For establishment results, this is usually the business name and address.

PlacePrediction class

google.maps.places.PlacePrediction class

Prediction results for a Place Autocomplete prediction.

Access by calling const {PlacePrediction} = await google.maps.importLibrary("places"). See Libraries in the Maps JavaScript API.

distanceMeters
Type:  number optional
The length of the geodesic in meters from origin if origin is specified.
mainText
Type:  FormattableText optional
Represents additional disambiguating features (such as a city or region) to further identify the Place or refine the query.
placeId
Type:  string
The unique identifier of the suggested Place. This identifier can be used in other APIs that accept Place IDs.
secondaryText
Type:  FormattableText optional
Represents additional disambiguating features (such as a city or region) to further identify the Place or refine the query.
text
Contains the human-readable name for the returned result. For establishment results, this is usually the business name and address.
types
Type:  Array<string>
List of types that apply to this Place from Table A or Table B in https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/places/web-service/place-types.
toPlace
toPlace()
Parameters:  None
Return Value:  Place
Returns a Place representation of this PlacePrediction. A subsequent call to Place.fetchFields is required to get full Place details.

StringRange class

google.maps.places.StringRange class

Identifies a substring within a given text.

Access by calling const {StringRange} = await google.maps.importLibrary("places"). See Libraries in the Maps JavaScript API.

endOffset
Type:  number
Zero-based offset of the last Unicode character of the substring (exclusive).
startOffset
Type:  number
Zero-based offset of the first Unicode character of the substring (inclusive).

FormattableText class

google.maps.places.FormattableText class

Text representing a Place prediction. The text may be used as is or formatted.

Access by calling const {FormattableText} = await google.maps.importLibrary("places"). See Libraries in the Maps JavaScript API.

matches
A list of string ranges identifying where the input request matched in FormattableText.text. The ranges can be used to format specific parts of text. The substrings may not be exact matches of AutocompleteRequest.input if the matching was determined by criteria other than string matching (for example, spell corrections or transliterations). These values are Unicode character offsets of FormattableText.text. The ranges are guaranteed to be ordered in increasing offset values.
text
Type:  string
Text that may be used as is or formatted with FormattableText.matches.
