Searching for Locations and Displaying the Results on a Map

Use the MapsIndoors.getLocationsAsync() method to search for content in your MapsIndoors Solution.

This example shows how to setup a query for the nearest single best matching location and display the result on the map:

// Init the query builder and build a query, in this case we will query for coffee machines ***/
MPQuery query = new MPQuery.Builder().
setQuery("coffee machine").
build();

// Init the filter builder and build a filter, the criteria in this case we want 1 coffee machine from the 1st floor
MPFilter filter = new MPFilter.Builder().
setFloorIndex(1).
build();

// Query the data
MapsIndoors.getLocationsAsync( query, filter, ( locs, err ) -> {
if( locs != null && locs.size() != 0 ) {
mMapControl.displaySearchResults( locs, true );
}
} );

This example shows how to setup a query for a group of locations and display the result on the map:

// Init the query builder and build a query, in this case we will query for all to toilets
MPQuery query = new MPQuery.Builder().
setQuery("Toilet").
build();

// Init the filter builder and build a filter, the criteria in this case we want maximum 50 toilets from the 1st floor
MPFilter filter = new MPFilter.Builder().
setTake( 50 ).
setFloorIndex( 1 ).
build();

// Query the data
MapsIndoors.getLocationsAsync(query, filter, (locs, err) -> {
if(locs != null && locs.size() != 0 ){
mMapControl.displaySearchResults( locs, true, 40 );
}
});

Please note that you are not guaranteed that the visible floor contains any search results, so that is why we change floor in the above example.
