Hi, I am trying to achieve two different types of icon  markers.
This is a map that show homes for sale, or homes sold.
I want type "a"icon  for a homes for sale and type "b" icon for a sold home.

This shows only homes for sale, with icon"a".

How do I show icon "b" for a home which is sold?
DB has field to show "active" or "sold".


Script is outputting data using ColdFusion

Thanks Expert!





 <script type="text/javascript">   
      
 <cfoutput>     

function LoadMap() {
	var locations = new Array(
    #REReplace(str, ",$", "")#
        );
	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'

Assuming the locations array has an index that would yield the value of the active/sold column. Let's say that index is 2, then:
$.each(locations, function(index, location) {
        var icon-path = (location[2] == "active") ? 'http://html.realia.byaviators.com/assets/img/marker-transparent.png' : 'http://html.realia.byaviators.com/assets/img/<some-other-icon>.png';
        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
            position: new google.maps.LatLng(location[0], location[1]),
            map: map,
            icon: icon-path
        });

Swapping that code snippet cause the map not to load.
Error console shows this:

Error: SyntaxError: missing ; before statement

Source Code:
        var icon-path = (location[6] == "active") ? 'http://html.realia.byav

Are you sure you copied the entire line for the ternary statement all the way to the semi-colon at the end. It's kinda long.

var icon-path = (location[2] == "active") ? 'http://html.realia.byaviators.com/assets/img/marker-transparent.png' : 'http://html.realia.byaviators.com/assets/img/<some-other-icon>.png';

Obviously, you need to adjust the path to the alternate icon png file.

Statement  looks fine, no returns, is one long string...


$.each(locations, function(index, location) {
        var icon-path = (location[6] == "active") ? 'http://html.realia.byaviators.com/assets/img/marker-transparent.png' : 'http://html.realia.byaviators.com/assets/img/marker-transparent2.png';
        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
            position: new google.maps.LatLng(location[0], location[1]),
            map: map,
            icon: icon-path      
			
	  });

Sorry, just a typo on the var name. Should be icon_path, not icon-path (or what ever you like).
$.each(locations, function(index, location) {
        var icon_path = (location[6] == "active") ? 'http://html.realia.byaviators.com/assets/img/marker-transparent.png' : 'http://html.realia.byaviators.com/assets/img/marker-transparent2.png';
        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
            position: new google.maps.LatLng(location[0], location[1]),
            map: map,
            icon: icon_path      
			
	  });
