Hi,

I've almost finished converting our map from the v2 API to v3:

http://www.chambresdhotesfrancedev.com/Europe/

I have 1 last thing I need to do, which I can't seem to work out. When you click on an info window at the moment, it will stay open when you move the map (and when an InfoWindow is open and you move the map around, it will auto-center again on that marker)

Is there a way to make it so the window is auto-closed when you move the map?

TIA

Andy

I don't see that behavior in Chrome.

You can write code to close it on the center_changed or bounds_changed
events.

I've done something similar to keep just one infoWindow open.
I initialize a var like this
var currentInfoWindow = null;

then on every marker click event I do something like this:

var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({
content: "your content here"
});
google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'click', function() {
if (currentInfoWindow != null) {
currentInfoWindow.close();
}
infowindow.open(map, marker);
currentInfoWindow = infowindow;
});

I've looked all over the net and this solution was the easiest for me to implement -- AND IT WORKED! Thanks!

if (typeof(currentInfoWindow) != 'undefined') { 
                      currentInfoWindow.close(); 
                  } 
                  infowindow.open(map, marker); 
                  currentInfoWindow = infowindow; 

use typeof() function
