I am using the following code to display an address in a Google Maps information window on a plotted map:

function initializePoint(pointData) {
      var point = new GLatLng(pointData.latitude, pointData.longitude);
      var marker = new GMarker(point);
      var listItem = document.createElement('li');
      var listItemLink = listItem.appendChild(document.createElement('a'));
      listItemLink.href = "#";
      listItemLink.innerHTML = '<strong>' + pointData.address + ' </strong><span>' + pointData.city + ', ' + pointData.state + ' </span>';
      
      var focusPoint = function() {
            deselectCurrent();
            listItem.className = 'current';
            deselectCurrent = function() { listItem.className = ''; }
            marker.openInfoWindowHtml(pointData.address);
            map.panTo(point);
            return false;
      }

      GEvent.addListener(marker, 'click', focusPoint);      
      listItemLink.onclick = focusPoint;

      document.getElementById('sidebar-list').appendChild(listItem);

      map.addOverlay(marker);
}

This is working fine and I am trying to add a tabbed window instead of the popup window and I cannot seem to pass the dynamic value of address like I was with the code above.  I am assuming its some sort of syntax issue.  New code is below
function initializePoint(pointData) {
	var point = new GLatLng(pointData.latitude, pointData.longitude);
	var marker = new GMarker(point);
	var listItem = document.createElement('li');
	var listItemLink = listItem.appendChild(document.createElement('a'));
	var visible = false;
 
	listItemLink.href = "#";
	listItemLink.innerHTML = '<strong>' + pointData.address + ' </strong><span>' + pointData.city + ', ' + pointData.state + ' (' + pointData.height + 'm)</span>';
	
	var focusPoint = function() {
		deselectCurrent();
		listItem.className = 'current';
		deselectCurrent = function() { listItem.className = ''; }
	var infoTabs = [
	new GInfoWindowTab("Info", "Data '(pointData.address)'"),
	new GInfoWindowTab("Visual", "Photo & Stree View Here")
	];
	marker.openInfoWindowTabsHtml(infoTabs,{
		selectedTab:0,
		maxWidth:300
	});
		map.panTo(point);
		return false;
	}

Open in new window

This has a string constant in there.
new GInfoWindowTab("Tab A", "pointData.address"),

I needed aa string variable, like:
new GInfoWindowTab("Tab A", pointData.address),
0
