How you can select two circles at a time in leaflet?? – Sunil Mar 4 '13 at 13:12
Great answer.... can someone please tell me what should I do in case I want to Animate this line. For example: put a moving in the direction of the flow. A simple GIF images of arrow will also suffice my need. – prateek agrawal Jul 11 at 18:43

So it seems to me all you have to do is take the two markers you have selected and grab their latlngs and add them to the polyline.

var latlngs = Array();

//Get latlng from first marker

//Get latlng from first marker

//You can just keep adding markers

//From documentation
// create a red polyline from an arrays of LatLng points
var polyline = L.polyline(latlngs, {color: 'red'}).addTo(map);

// zoom the map to the polyline


In case you are looking for a way to also get the selected markers. You will need to probably listen to the click event of each marker and add the markers to an array that contains your selected markers. You will just need to limit that array to two entries. This is not an optimal solution but should get you there and will allow you to easily extend if you want more than two markers.
