Removing a Marker in Google Maps API v3

I'm trying to remove a marker that was initialized like this:

marker = new google.maps.Marker({
position: latLng,
map: map,
draggable: true,
animation: google.maps.Animation.DROP,
title: 'Marker 1',
icon: redPin

google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function() {
showMarkerDialog(marker.position, "marker");

google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "dblclick", function() {
// Add a alert: Are you sure you want to remove this marker?


Everything works perfectly except that when I double click it to remove what I get on the Error Console is this:

TypeError: Object # has no method 'removeOverlay'

What am I doing wrong?


There is no removeOverlay function on the map object. Sounds like you've got only one marker, why use an array? Just change this:

google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "dblclick", function() {

to this:

marker.addListener("dblclick", function() {
