Using Meridian Editor Keys (iOS)
This article describes how to use Meridian Editor keys for apps, maps, and placemarks in the iOS SDK.
How to Find a Specific Key
You can find the location and floor keys for a specific map by opening that map in the Meridian Editor.
Keys are often known as IDs.
The URL for the floor page contains the keys you'll need:
To get a specific placemark, select a placemark on the floor. The placemark key will be available in the URL as follows:
Using Meridian Editor Keys
Use instances of MREditorKey to reference specific apps, maps, and placemarks that you've created in the Meridian Editor. Many of the Meridian SDK's classes require valid keys during initialization.
// Creating a key representing your app in the Meridian Editor: MREditorKey *appKey = [MREditorKey keyWithIdentifier:@"5085468668573440"]; // Creating a key representing a map in the MeridianEditor: MREditorKey *mapKey = [MREditorKey keyForMap:@"5708115733494264" app:@"5085468668573440"]; // An alternate way to create a map key: MREditorKey *mapKey = [MREditorKey keyForMap:@"5708115733494264" app:appKey.identifier]; // Creating a key representing a placemark: MREditorKey *placemarkKey = [MREditorKey keyForPlacemark:@"375634485771" map:mapKey];
When you create an instance of MREditorKey to represent a specific map, your app ID becomes the parent of the
mapKey. Similarly, when you create a placemark key, the map ID becomes the parent of the
MREditorKey *placemarkKey = [MREditorKey keyForPlacemark:@"375634485771" map:someMapKey]; MREditorKey *mapKey = placemarkKey.parent; NSLog(@"My map ID: %@", mapKey.identifier); MREditorKey *appKey = mapKey.parent; NSLog(@"My app ID: %@", appKey.identifier);
