jQuery Question

JavaScript click event for any google maps markers?

I need to make something happen when any google maps marker is clicked on. Im using the demo from this link as a starting point:


UPDATE - ive tried the following:

$.each(markers, function(i, marker){

$.each(markers, function(i, marker){

UPDATE Ive tried adding this middle section to existing code:

$.each(markers, function(i, marker){
marker.setMap( checked ? map : null);

//added code begins
//added code ends


Answer Source

Note that the OP is asking about doing this using the GMAP3 library, which is a jQuery plugin library that adds an API layer on top of the Google Maps layer. it is absolutely correct to say that the Google API is to use google.maps.addListener, but I think that the OP wants something that's closer to the GMAP3 example using addMarkers, but listening to the click event. With that in mind, I modified the example from GMAP3 and changed the mouseenter event to the click event and got rid of the mouseleave event.

For those wanting to do further playing, I created a jsFddle of this example.

Here's the source:

     #map {
      width: 400px;
      height: 400px;
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false">  </script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://gmap3.net/js/gmap3-4.1-min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
            action: 'init',
            options: {
                center: [46.578498, 2.457275],
                zoom: 5
        }, {
            action: 'addMarkers',
            markers: [
                lat: 48.8620722,
                lng: 2.352047,
                data: 'Paris !'},
                    lat: 46.59433,
                    lng: 0.342236,
                    data: 'Poitiers : great city !'},

                        marker: {
                            options: {
                                draggable: false
                            events: {
                                click: function(marker, event, data) {
                                    var map = $(this).gmap3('get'),
                                    infowindow = $(this).gmap3({
                                        action: 'get',
                                        name: 'infowindow'
                                    if (infowindow) {
                                        infowindow.open(map, marker);
                                    } else {
                                            action: 'addinfowindow',
                                            anchor: marker,
                                            options: {
                                                content: data
    <div id="map" style="width: 400x; height: 400px"></div>​
