This article describes how to use Meridian Editor keys for apps, maps, and placemarks in the Android 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 Editor Keys
Use instances of EditorKey to specify apps, maps, and placemarks that have been created in the Meridian Editor. Most of the Meridian SDK classes require a valid key during initialization.
// Create a key representing your app in the Meridian Editor. EditorKey appKey = new EditorKey("5809862863224832"); // Create a key representing a map in the Meridian Editor. EditorKey mapKey = EditorKey.forMap("5668600916475904", appKey.getId()); // Create a key representing a placemark. EditorKey placemarkKey = EditorKey.forPlacemark("5668600916475904_5709068098338816", mapKey);
When you create an EditorKey to represent a map, the app identifier you provide becomes the parent of the map key. Likewise, when you create a placemarkKey, the map you specify becomes the parent of that placemark.
EditorKey placemarkKey = EditorKey.forPlacemark("375634485771", someMapKey); EditorKey mapKey = placemarkKey.getParent(); Log.i(TAG, "My map ID: " + mapKey.getId()); EditorKey appKey = mapKey.getParent(); Log.i(TAG, "My app ID: " + appKey.getId());
