Hi EE,

I've been following https://developers.google.com/maps/articles/phpsqlsearch_v3 and i've got it working great.

However i just want to count all the markers that have been created on the map regardless of zoom level.

i tried using MarkerManager but everything i try it fails.

MarkerManager

Can anyone help me modify the script below to pass the count of the markers to div id Count

EDIT:

Adding this line to the end of your createMarker function should be all you need.
...
          markers.push(marker);
        document.getElementById('Count').innerHTML = markers.length;
    }
