Include Google Maps in the Application

The example below demonstrates how to include Google maps when working with the Hybrid UI Application of Kendo UI.

       <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <div data-role="view" data-title="Info" id="info">
      <div style="width:100%; text-align: center">
        <h1>Using Google Maps<br />in KendoUI application</h1>

    <!-- hook up to the init event of the view and initialize the google map -->
    <div data-role="view" data-init="buildMap" id="map" data-title="Map">
      <div id="map_canvas" style="width:100%;"></div>

    <div data-role="layout" data-id="default">
      <div data-role="header">
        <div data-role="navbar">
          <span data-role="view-title"></span>

      <div data-role="footer">
        <div data-role="tabstrip">
          <a href="#info" data-icon="info">Info</a>
          <a href="#map" data-icon="globe">Map</a>

      new, {layout: "default"});

      //initialize the google map
      function buildMap(e) {
        var myOptions = {
          center: new google.maps.LatLng(-34.397, 150.644),
          zoom: 8,
          mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP

        var mapElement = $("#map_canvas");
        var container = e.view.content;

        var map = new google.maps.Map(mapElement[0], myOptions);

      #map .km-content,
      #map .km-scroll-container,
      #map #map_canvas {
        display: -webkit-box;
        width: 100%;
