      13)Connection for Push Button with GMAPS Plugin we have lots of methods, but I had tried below two methods:-

   i) Using Destination of Push button as a source in chart component and chart Destination should be maintained as source of GMAPS Plugin.

  ii) Or by using simple Function/IF statement.

  14)I have use 2nd method and this statement was link to the GMAPS Plugin as a source:
