I want to have different data for each marker's info box.

How do I do this?



<script type="text/javascript">   
      
    

function LoadMap() {
	var locations = new Array(
        <cfoutput query="getfeaturedlistings">#latitude#</cfoutput>
        );
	var markers = new Array()
	var mapOptions = {
		center: new google.maps.LatLng(49.3536595, -123.2449326),
		zoom: 12,
		mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP,
		scrollwheel: false
    };



    var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map'), mapOptions);

    $.each(locations, function(index, location) {
        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
            position: new google.maps.LatLng(location[0], location[1]),
            map: map,
            icon: 'http://html.realia.byaviators.com/assets/img/marker-transparent.png'
        });

	    
		var myOptions = {
	        content: '<div class="infobox"><div class="image"><img src="http://www.mydomain.com/images/forsale.png" alt=""></div><div class="title"><a href="detail.html">1041 Fife Ave</a></div><div class="area"><span class="key">Area:</span><span class="value">200m<sup>2</sup></span></div><div class="price">€450 000.00</div><div class="link"><a href="detail.html">View more</a></div></div>',
	        disableAutoPan: false,
	        maxWidth: 0,
	        pixelOffset: new google.maps.Size(-146, -190),
	        zIndex: null,
	        closeBoxURL: "",
	        infoBoxClearance: new google.maps.Size(1, 1),
	        position: new google.maps.LatLng(location[0], location[1]),
	        isHidden: false,
	        pane: "floatPane",
	        enableEventPropagation: false
	    };
		
	    marker.infobox = new InfoBox(myOptions);
		marker.infobox.isOpen = false;
		
		
	    var myOptions = {
	        draggable: true,
			content: '<div class="marker"><div class="marker-inner"></div></div>',

			enableEventPropagation: true
	    };
	    marker.marker = new InfoBox(myOptions);
		marker.marker.open(map, marker);
		markers.push(marker);

        google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function (e) {
            var curMarker = this;

            $.each(markers, function (index, marker) {
                // if marker is not the clicked marker, close the marker
                if (marker !== curMarker) {
                    marker.infobox.close();
                    marker.infobox.isOpen = false;
                }
            });


            if(curMarker.infobox.isOpen === false) {
                curMarker.infobox.open(map, this);
                curMarker.infobox.isOpen = true;
                map.panTo(curMarker.getPosition());
            } else {
                curMarker.infobox.close();
                curMarker.infobox.isOpen = false;
            }

        });
    });
}

function InitMap() {
	google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', LoadMap);
}

Does the locations array contain the additional information? For example, is it just a matter of accessing different indexes in the array?

'<div class="infobox"><div class="image"><img src="http://www.mydomain.com/images/forsale.png" alt=""></div><div class="title"><a href="detail.html">' + location[2] + '</a></div><div class="area"><span class="key">Area:</span><span class="value">200m<sup>' + location[3] + '</sup></span></div><div class="price">' + location[4] + '</div><div class="link"><a href="detail.html">View more</a></div></div>'

If not then where is the additional information coming from?

Thanks. That causes all the infoboxes to open at the same time on any marker that is clicked.
Perhaps my problem is in my marker array?
This is the generated code:
var locations = new Array
([49.3446158,-123.2097986],[49.3514140,-123.2605710],[49.3522052,-123.1074731]
 );
