how to use json ajax for google map markers

I try to use the Json Ajax for google map markers.So after clicking on the button run Ajax, I get a problem with it. it's not display markers
Should change be made?
Where is my problem?
this is My Action after run ajax:

public ActionResult AsMapAjax(string jobid,string subid,string Searchitem)
string markers = "[";
foreach (var item in UnitOfWork.WD.GetAll())
markers += "{";
markers += string.Format("'title': '{0}',", "Test");
markers += string.Format("'lat': '{0}',", item.Lat);
markers += string.Format("'lng': '{0}',", item.Lng);
markers += string.Format("'description': '{0}'", "");

markers += "},";
markers += "];";

var mark= new MvcHtmlString(markers);
return Json(new { success = true, responseText = mark }, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);


and my jquery ajax(scripts):

navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(function (p) {
var latlng = new google.maps.LatLng(p.coords.latitude, p.coords.longitude);

var mapOptions = {
center: latlng,
zoom: 12,
mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
var infoWindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();
var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("dvMap"), mapOptions);
//You re Here
var iconoMarca = "../../images/URHere.gif";
mymarker = new google.maps.Marker({
animation: google.maps.Animation.DROP,

map: map,
icon: iconoMarca,
position: latlng

$('#prt').on('click', function () {
var Subid = document.getElementById("bluee").value;
var jobid = document.getElementById("Jobs").value;
var Searchitem = document.getElementById("SearchItem").value;
type: "post",
url: "/My/AsMapAjax",
dataType: 'json',

data: { subid:Subid,jobid:jobid,Searchitem:Searchitem},
success: function (response) {
if (response != null && response.success) {

} else {

alert("there is a problem!");
error: function (response) {
alert("Sorry!try again please.");




var numberMarkerImg = {
url: '../../images/shapemarker.png',
size: new google.maps.Size(32, 38),
scaledSize: new google.maps.Size(32, 38),
labelOrigin: new google.maps.Point(21,42)
var markerLabel = 'Test';

for (i = 0; i < markers.length; i++) {

var data = markers[i]
var myLatlng = new google.maps.LatLng(, data.lng);

var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
position: myLatlng,
map: map,
label:markerLabel ,
title: data.title,
animation: google.maps.Animation.DROP


( function (marker, data) {
google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function (e) {
infoWindow.setContent(data.description);, marker);
window.location.href = "/My/sargarmi";

(marker, data);


google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, "resize", function() {
var center = map.getCenter();
google.maps.event.trigger(map, "resize");


but the markers not display ! how to fix this problem?
or is other way for this question?
thanks a lot

Your question does not explain what specific problem you are experiencing. So i am going to give you a simple - working solution which improves some of the stuff you did.

Let's start with your server method. You are building the stringified version of a json array by string concatenation. That is unnecessary and error prone. Why not let the JSON serializer which is part of the mvc framework to do that for you ?

Create a simple class to represent your marker

public class Marker
    public string Title { set; get; }
    public double Lat { set; get; }
    public double Lng { set; get; }

Now in your action method, Build a list of this Marker class and you can pass that to the Json method.

public ActionResult AsMapAjax(string jobid, string subid, string Searchitem)
    //Hard coded for demo. You may replace with values from db
    var list = new List<Marker>
        new Marker() { Title="AA" ,Lat =  -33.890542, Lng=151.274856 },
        new Marker() { Title="BB", Lat =  -33.923036, Lng=151.259052 },
        new Marker() { Title="CC" ,Lat =  -34.028249, Lng=151.157507 },
    return Json(new { success = true, responseText = list });

Now in your client side, you make the ajax call to this action method, read the response coming back and add markers.

$(function() {
    $('#prt').on('click', function() {

function initMap() {
    //read the parameter values you want to send to server
    var searchItem =$("#SearchItem").val();
    var jobs=$("#Jobs").val();
    var subid = $("#bluee").val();

    var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map'),
            zoom: 8
    var url = "@Url.Action("AsMapAjax", "Home")";

    $.post(url, { searchTerm: searchItem,jobid: jobs,subid : subid },function(res) {
            if (res.success) {
                var latLng;
                $.each(res.responseText,function(i, item) {
                        latLng = new google.maps.LatLng(item.Lat, item.Lng);
                        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
                            position: latLng,
                            map: map


I am using the Url.Action method to generate the correct relative url to the action method as my script was inside a razor code block. If you are using this code in an external javascript file, follow the solution described in this post to handle that case
