VS 2012 Google Places API - Premium Data Zagat Ratings
Jun 9, 2014
I have to work with the Google Places API, specifically Zagat Ratings. It is "premium data" meaning I can't just be a billing user (which is what I am now), I have to be an enterprise user (which it looks like you have to buy a license or otherwise pay to become). How exactly how one becomes an enterprise user? If you happen to have used Zagat ratings, any example of data that comes back from a query so I can take a look and be sure it suits our needs?
If you want the details, this is what I've done (since beginning research on this on Friday).
1. I obtained an API key and in order to do so I created a project (by logging into my google account). My project name is the default "My Project". Then I created a new browser key. With this key, I was able to post requests as below:
The reply has no Zagat ratings, though. I determined this is because I'm not an Enterprise user: To obtain Zagat data you have to become an enterprise user; just being a "billing user" is not enough.
2. So I wanted to see definitively what kind of a user am I. One hit I got said "Visit the APIs Console and log in with your Google Account", then "Select the project that was created for you when you signed up. The project name will start with Google Maps APIs for Business". I didn't quite understand this second part, and how it presumes to know what my project name is, especially since mine is just the simple default "My Project". Finally it says: "The Places API - Zagat Content service should be enabled (mine is not. Actually, I have no such thing). The Places API service should be disabled (mine is enabled).
To learn ASP.NET MVC, I am thinking of creating a community forum like SO where people can rate posts, users etc. and the user can thereby gain points. I just can't figure out if the points should be added to the user profile whenever an action is done (post rated up/down, user created new post etc.) or if it should be calculated from the different activities the user has done.
I have a few pro's and con's for both ways of doing it:
i am using a usercontrol with repeater for custom paging in grdiview. Everything works fine. I am able to display link buttons and able to pull exact records. Now i have a little user friendly requirement. The pager usercontrol should appear at top of grid and bottom of grid. For that i have placed two instances of usercontrol. I am supposed to place same instance of usercontrol in two places so that whatever button click in any instance should happen in all available instances. The issue is i clicked page 2 (link button) in top pager user control. Its changed to selected mode(non clickable) where as bottom remains same, page 2 is clickable. How can i proceed?
I'm trying to create an ASP.NET Web Application, but this is all I see: I have confirmed that I have the full Visual Studio installed, not just Visual C#.Why can't I see ASP.NET Web Application in the "new project" list?
I have with working with Visual Studio for a while, and using it's web server. I decided I needed IIS 7 for testing certain features. I installed, but I get an error
The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the extension configuration. If the page is a script, add a handler. If the file should be downloaded, add a MIME mapI've googled and been able to figure out that aspx pages are not enabled by default, but I can't find the proper method to fix this.
I get headeache from trying to install mysaql using WebMatrix in windows 7 home premium, it's installed fine, when i install Joomla , and starts new web stite , it dosnot connect to my sql, and i'm sure 200% from the username "root" and the password,,, is there problem in my windows,?
Recently I had a weird problem while trying to install SQL Server Reporting Service in my local PC. I am using Windows Vista Home Premium and I wanted to configure SSRS in my PC. During the installation, the setup wizard listed all the services that we want to install and I found that only Reporting Server checkbox option was disabled and I wondered why??? I thought it may be becuase of some installation problem and tried again and its useless... I googled lot of sites for 3 days and finally found that due to some IIS issues, it is not possible to install Reporting Server in Vista Home Premium version. Reporting Server needs some specific IIS features to be installed in the machine.
But unfortunately those features are not available for Home Premium users which in term restricts users not to install reporting server in our PCs... Also, Microsoft has accepted it as an issue and its not possible to get it install in Home Premium...just wanted to share and might be useful for someone like me.
I had Visual studio 2008 Team system installed on my machine and tried to uninstall that . When I did the uninstall, am getting a wierd error message "A problem has been encountered while loading the set up components .Cancelling set up". I googled this and found some posts asking me to uninstall all the hot fixes associated with VS 2008 TS .I did that but still am getting the same message.
I have a master gridview that I am populating data to. I am am also counting records of open and closed and I want to display the percentage closed. I am using the following code. It always rounds up. In other words, if the actual calculation shows it to be 0.16 it will always display in the label as 0.2 I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. If I just take two numbers and divide them in the code it displays 0.16676767. Here is the code I am using. The first line is on up in the code but I plugged it here to show you that I am using a session variable to add to as I rip through the code. I have all three of the variables I am placing the session variables in defined as Dim xxxxx as single.
The aim is that once a user clicks on a particular row in the ListView a pop-up is displayed which in turn reflects all data related to the record. For the purpose of preparing the data for the pop-up I need to determine the unique record identifier.
I have the same code working perfectly in another app, which has to effect that once a user clicks on a particular row in the ListView a new tab is opened which in turn reflects all data related to the record.
i hav one data table in which some decimal values are up 6 decimal places.. im trying to bind that Data table to DataGridView while binding i want to round decimal values up to two decimal palces here is my code
dt.Columns.Add("Orderid", typeof(string)); dt.Columns.Add("tagnumber", typeof(string)); dt.Columns.Add("Minimum Value", typeof(string)); dt.Columns.Add("Maximum Value", typeof(string)); int count = ds.Tables.Rows.Count; for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)
I was read your post: "Export GridView to Excel in ASP.Net with Formatting using C#" and is very useful. That code works perfect. But I need create a new format for a specific column in my sheet before to export it. For example:My DataTable have a column with decimal numbers and I'm trying reduce the tenths for each number.I want this: 2,874444 ----> 2,87 for a specific range. In this case I need it for all numbers in the column 13 or well said for the Column called N in Excel. Only reduce two tenths.
As an organisation, we use Google Apps. We have the paid version (mapped to our domain) etc...We are developing a web based application to manage orders, and other business functionality.I want to be able to use federated login with our google apps accounts- For example, if a user is logged in to their email (gMail) - they should automatically be logged in to our ASP.net application
If they're not logged in - the log in form should auth. against our google apps account.How can this be done?Is it possible to be able to "get" the user who is currently logged in using this method etc...?
We have got two distinct lists of users that we need to power logged in access to sections of our site. These lists can't be combined, as one is synced daily to an externally hosted data source, and both tables have to be 100% the same. We have set up two Membership providers onto the site, but my question is, is it possible to allow both to be logged in at the same time?
The issue I find is that HttpContext.Current.User.identity.name contains the username of the last successful logon.
