Google Maps Markers Not Showing

We are displaying a number of markers on a Google Map V2 in a browser window in a Delphi application.  This has worked since 2010 when the feature was developed.  However, the markers have just stopped showing on the map.  We obtained a licence key from Google when we set up the project.  There are notes on the Goggle Maps site about quotas being exceeded and asks you to go to your console to view.  However, we can see no way of doing this.

Our code was copied from examples and uses the following template
<!DOCTYPE html "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"  
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

    <script type="text/javascript"> 
     function initialize() { 
      if (GBrowserIsCompatible()) { 
        function createMarker(point,html) {
          var marker = new GMarker(point);
          GEvent.addListener(marker, "click", function() {
            marker.openInfoWindowHtml(html);
          });
          return marker;
        }
        var map = new GMap2(document.getElementById("map_canvas")); 
        map.setCenter(new GLatLng(<#LAT>, <#LONG>), <#ZOOM>); 
        map.setUIToDefault(); 
        <#MARKERS>
      } 
    } 
    </script> 
  </head> 
  <body onload="initialize()" onunload="GUnload()"> 
    <div id="map_canvas" style="width:<#WIDTH>px; height: <#HEIGHT>px"></div> 
  </body> 
</html>

Open in new window

The <#XXX> tags are replaced with the required data.  The <#MARKER> tag is replaced with the required list of markers of the form
'var point = n.comew GLatLng(%s,%s); '+
           'var marker = createMarker(point,''%s''); '+
           'map.addOverlay(marker);

Open in new window

The %s placeholders are Lat, Long and the link to the markers detailed information.

Any one any idea why this should have stopped working.  I know that we are being encouraged to migrate to v3 of the API, but I have had no information on v2 being turned off.

Many thanks

It's no more complicated - in your original code the infowindow and click even were just wrapped in a separate function. So you would still have created a separate eventListener and infoWindow for each marker. Where you had this code:

var point = n.comew GLatLng(%s,%s);
var marker = createMarker(point,''%s''); '+
map.addOverlay(marker);

Open in new window

createMarker() was your own function that created the marker, added the click event and then showed the infoWindow.

You can wrap your new code in a function in the same way,

If you are getting a message about exceeding quotas, then you need to contact Google support to find out how to increase the quotas.  They will probably tell you that you need a paid premium version.

No message about exceeding quotas, just markers not appearing.

You need to switch to version 3. Version 2 was turned off on 19 November (2ish weeks ago).

Have a look here:

Thanks.  I have re-done all the code except the info-window that pop-up when each marker was clicked.  Each market was added using
'var point = new GLatLng(<Lat>,<Long>); '+  
'var marker = new GMarker(position: point, <Info>); '+   
'map.addOverlay(marker);'

Open in new window

Simple.

v3 seems to need to create a separate infowindow for each marker and Listener events  for each marker, requiring each marker and infowindow to receive a unique name
'var marker1 = new google.maps.Marker({'+
'position: new google.maps.LatLng(<Lat>, <Long>),'+
'title: <Title>, map: map});'+
'var infowindow1 = new google.maps.InfoWindow({content: <Info>});'#13+
'google.maps.event.addListener(marker1, ''click'', function() {'+
'infowindow1.open(map,marker1);});'

Open in new window

Seems much more complicated, but I guess that's progress.

Sorry, showing my unfamiliarity with JavaScript.  I have made the wrapper and simplified the call for each point.  Works fine.  Just need to get the nice rounded corners that the V2 infowindow had!  Many thanks.
