I am trying to add a right click event to the google maps.  I cannot see alert with the geocodes.
I am not sure what to change.

var map;

var directionsDisplay;
var directionsService = new google.maps.DirectionsService();

function initialize() {
directionsDisplay = new google.maps.DirectionsRenderer();
  var mapOptions = {
    zoom: 8,
    center: new google.maps.LatLng(-34.397, 150.644),
    mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP

  map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('mapsGoogle'),


 google.maps.event.addListener(map, 'rightclick', function(event ) {
         var lat = event.latLng.lat();
         var lng = event.latLng.lng();
        alert("Lat=" + lat + "; Lng=" + lng);

put line 23 to 27 inside the initialize function (line 23 is good)

leakim971, it worked.
Do you need to have all the events inside initialize?
