JSON Question

Google map waypoints from geoJSON

I want to load an itinerary from a geoJSON file.
For the moment, it works, but only with two points.

But I need to add 4 or 5 waypoints. My code only read the two first points and set them as Origin and destination.

Here's my code

google.maps.event.addListener(map.data, 'addfeature', function (e) {

if (e.feature.getGeometry().getType() === 'Point') {
map.setCenter(e.feature.getGeometry().get());

if (!origin) origin = e.feature.getGeometry().get(); //if origin does not exist

else if (!destination) {
destination = e.feature.getGeometry().get();

calculate();
}
}
});


Any idea ?
Do I have to create a loop ?
Or change the json code for the waypoints ?

Here's my json :

{
"type": "FeatureCollection",
"features":

[

{ "type": "Feature",
"geometry": {"type": "Point", "coordinates": [-73.562686, 45.4960413]},
"properties": {"prop0": "value0"}
},


{ "type": "Feature",
"geometry": {"type": "Point", "coordinates": [-73.568367, 45.4933086]},
"properties": {"prop0": "value0"}
}
]

}


Thanks !

working fiddle

function calculate() {
    var request = {
        origin: origin,
        waypoints: waypts,
        destination: destination,
        travelMode: google.maps.TravelMode.DRIVING
    };
    directionsDisplay.setPanel(document.getElementById('directions-panel'));
    directionsService.route(request, function (response, status) {
        if (status == google.maps.DirectionsStatus.OK) {
            directionsDisplay.setDirections(response);
        }
    });
}

// global variables
var origin = null;
var destination = null;
var waypts = [];
var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();
var directionsDisplay = new google.maps.DirectionsRenderer();
var directionsService = new google.maps.DirectionsService();

function initialize() {
    // Create a simple map.
    features = [];
    map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map-canvas'), {
        zoom: 4,
        center: {
            lat: -28,
            lng: 137.883
        }
    });
    directionsDisplay.setMap(map);
    directionsDisplay.setPanel(document.getElementById('directions-panel'));
    google.maps.event.addListener(map, 'click', function () {
        infowindow.close();
    });
    // process the loaded GeoJSON data.
    google.maps.event.addListener(map.data, 'addfeature', function (e) {
        if (e.feature.getGeometry().getType() === 'Point') {
            map.setCenter(e.feature.getGeometry().get());
            // set the origin to the first point
            if (!origin) origin = e.feature.getGeometry().get();
            // set the destination to the second point
            else waypts.push({
                location: e.feature.getGeometry().get(),
                stopover: true
            });
            // calculate the directions once both origin and destination are set 
            // calculate();
        }
    });
    google.maps.event.addListenerOnce(map, 'idle', function () {
        if (!destination) {
            destination = waypts.pop();
            destination = destination.location;
            // calculate the directions once both origin and destination are set 
            calculate();
        }
    });
    map.data.addGeoJson(data);
}

google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', initialize);

To address Dr.Molle's point about the idle event firing before the data layer is loaded, you can create a custom data_idle event, and fire that event after all the points from the GeoJson have been processed.
