  street_number: 'short_name',
  route: 'long_name',
  locality: 'long_name',
  administrative_area_level_1: 'short_name',
  country: 'long_name',
  postal_code: 'short_name'

function initialize() {
  // Create the autocomplete object, restricting the search
  // to geographical location types.
  autocomplete = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete(
      { types: ['geocode'] });
  // When the user selects an address from the dropdown,
  // populate the address fields in the form.
  google.maps.event.addListener(autocomplete, 'place_changed', function() {
  autocomplete_textarea = new google.maps.places.Autocomplete((document.getElementById('autocomplete_textarea')),
      { types: ['geocode'] }
  google.maps.event.addListener(autocomplete_textarea, 'place_changed', function() {

function fillInAddress_textarea(){
	var place = autocomplete_textarea.getPlace();
	console.log( place.formatted_address );
	console.log( JSON.stringify(place) );
	$('#autocomplete_textarea').val( place.formatted_address );

// [START region_fillform]
function fillInAddress() {
  // Get the place details from the autocomplete object.
  var place = autocomplete.getPlace();
  console.log( JSON.stringify(place) );
  for (var component in componentForm) {
    document.getElementById(component).value = '';
    document.getElementById(component).disabled = false;

  // Get each component of the address from the place details
