I'm using GeoServer, PostgreSQL and here OpenLayers. I'm trying to retrieve two lat-lon points (for point A and point B) on clicking of map. This code is working only to retrieve one lat-lon.

I want to use this for four (two lat-lon) points in JSP file, that I will use to find shortest path between that points.

So how can I perform this?

OpenLayers.Control.Click = OpenLayers.Class(OpenLayers.Control, {                
                defaultHandlerOptions: {
                    'single': true,
                    'double': false,
                    'pixelTolerance': 0,
                    'stopSingle': false,
                    'stopDouble': false

                initialize: function(options) {
                    this.handlerOptions = OpenLayers.Util.extend(
                        {}, this.defaultHandlerOptions
                        this, arguments
                    this.handler = new OpenLayers.Handler.Click(
                        this, {
                            'click': this.trigger
                        }, this.handlerOptions

                trigger: function(e) {
                    var lonlat = map.getLonLatFromPixel(e.xy);
                    var lat=lonlat.lat;
                    var lon=lonlat.lon;

                    //alert("You clicked near " + lonlat.lat + " N, " +
                      //                        + lonlat.lon + " E");


 var click = new OpenLayers.Control.Click();

In body tag

    double lat = Double.parseDouble(request.getParameter("lat"));
    double lon = Double.parseDouble(request.getParameter("lon"));

/*How to perform this one
    double lat2 = Double.parseDouble(request.getParameter("lat2"));
    double lon2 = Double.parseDouble(request.getParameter("lon2"));


  • Are you asking how to save the previously clicked point in the trigger function? Oct 13 '15 at 4:28
  • exactly and want to use that two point(previous and current) in java tag as variable.

  • So, you need to create two more variables inside your overriden Control.Click class, lat_last, lon_last, for example, and update those to previous values of lat/lon, if they exist. Assuming all 4 have values, and are different, then you can call your jsp function. Oct 13 '15 at 16:16

  • Above code also not work. and my page stucture : javascript defer init() { click event code and map creation code } <body onload=init()>

Please try below code. it might be useful in this scenario...

var lat1='',lat2='',lon1='',lon2='';var index=0;trigger: function(e) {
                var lonlat = map.getLonLatFromPixel(e.xy);
if ( index==0)

window.location.replace("atobNewForPath.jsp?lat1="+lat+"&lon1="+lon1 + "&lat2="+lat+"&lon2="+lon1);}else{
    alert('Please press reset button');
