Actually queries the Google Maps address API.

JavaScript February 7, 2021


This function runs automatically, so it is not called manually. Is this incorrect?


Demo file is missing! Please report this error.

Additional Notes

Instead of calling this function directly, please use nebulaAddressAutocomplete() so that the Google Maps library can be loaded as needed.
