I have a google map that displays multiple markers.  I am centering the map on the center of the zip code or city/state searched.  I am also finding the closest location based on lat/long distance and displaying that in a text string external to the map.

I need to have a link in the text string that will recenter the map on that location.  What is the bes tway to do this?

Thanks!

If you want to post the code you're using for this, I can probably show you how to recenter the map.  I would pass a "center=" argument in the URL (GET) string.  If present, I would use this geocode (lat/lon pair) to center the map.

I have a Google Maps API class that might be useful to you.  Please see the public method "setCenter" in the code here:

Thanks Ray,

I will give that a try.  It will probably be tomorrow afternoon before I am able to work on it again however.

Thanks!
