Goal: To render a google map using geolocation.

I am trying to implement the below example on my site.


Working demo: http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/geoco...

I have implemented the code in my drupal_add_js() in hook_init() but I am getting an error

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/vishal/public_html/dev/sites/all/modules/customvishal/customvishal.module on line 43

below is my code:

var geocoder;
var map;

function initialize()
geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();
var latlng = new google.maps.LatLng(-34.397, 150.644);
var myOptions = {
zoom: 8,
center: latlng,
mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP
map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById("map_canvas"), myOptions);


var address = "pune,india";
var latlng = new google.maps.LatLng();
geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();

geocoder.geocode( { 'address': address}, function(results, status)
if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK)
var marker = new google.maps.Marker
map: map,
position: results[0].geometry.location
alert("Geocode was not successful for the following reason: " + status);



array('type' => 'inline', 'scope' => 'header', 'weight' => 5)

The js you're trying to add

The js you're trying to add is enclosed in single quotes but contains single quotes within it, leading the parser to find the end of the string where it's not intended. You could try changing those to double quotes:

geocoder.geocode( { "address": address}, function(results, status)

...but generally adding such big chunks inline is not a good idea (hard to debug), better load them from a file.
