AdMob Plugin Pro

Show Mobile Ad with single line of javascript code

Step 1: Create Ad Unit Id for your banner and interstitial, in AdMob portal, then write it in your javascript code.

// select the right Ad Id according to platform
    var admobid = {};
    if( /(android)/i.test(navigator.userAgent) ) { // for android
        admobid = {
            banner: 'ca-app-pub-xxx/xxx', // or DFP format "/6253334/dfp_example_ad"
            interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-xxx/yyy'
    } else if(/(ipod|iphone|ipad)/i.test(navigator.userAgent)) { // for ios
        admobid = {
            banner: 'ca-app-pub-xxx/zzz', // or DFP format "/6253334/dfp_example_ad"
            interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-xxx/kkk'
    } else { // for windows phone
        admobid = {
            banner: 'ca-app-pub-xxx/zzz', // or DFP format "/6253334/dfp_example_ad"
            interstitial: 'ca-app-pub-xxx/kkk'

Step 2: Want a banner? single line of javascript code.

// it will display smart banner at top center, using the default options
if(AdMob) AdMob.createBanner( {
    adId: admobid.banner, 
    position: AdMob.AD_POSITION.TOP_CENTER, 
    autoShow: true } );

Step 3: Want full screen Ad? Easy, 2 lines of code.

// preppare and load ad resource in background, e.g. at begining of game level
if(AdMob) AdMob.prepareInterstitial( {adId:admobid.interstitial, autoShow:false} );

// show the interstitial later, e.g. at end of game level
if(AdMob) AdMob.showInterstitial();
