I have a leaflet map where i am using Control Geocoder to get some locations on search,then i add the coordinates on 2 input fields,also i added a popup for the search result,the problem is that when the marker is moved the popup doesn't update with the new place,how can this be done?

Mmap = L.map('Modalmap').setView([8.7144, 125.7481],8);
L.tileLayer( 'http://{s}.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png', {
    attribution: '&copy; <a href="https://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright"></a>',
    subdomains: ['a','b','c']
var geocoder = L.Control.geocoder({
    defaultMarkGeocode: false,
.on('markgeocode', function(e) {
    var box = e.geocode.center;
    var name=e.geocode.name;
    document.getElementById("Latitude").value = box.lat;
    document.getElementById("Longitude").value = box.lng;
    on('dragend', onDragEnd). 

    group = new L.featureGroup([MarkLayer]);


function onDragEnd(event) 
    var latlng = event.target.getLatLng();


function displayLatLng(latlng) {
    document.getElementById("Latitude").value = latlng.lat;
    document.getElementById("Longitude").value = latlng.lng;
  • I tried your code. It is quite logical, if you drag the marker, it won't necessary fall on a new place with a name. Or do you want to put lat, long data into your popup? – juminet Feb 24 '17 at 15:50
  • @juminet...when geocoding done at the first time,it shows street name or building number,when i drag it,it is supposed to give me the new street name for example but it gives me the same result of the first point. – New at Leaflet Feb 25 '17 at 11:27

You can use the .reverse function to do a reverse geocoding, that is, retrieving a name for a latitude-longitude coordinate.

To use that you have to create a geocoder instance. I chose the default here, which is Nominatim. It might help to rename your current geocoder control to geocoderControl or something else.

var geocoderNominatim = new L.Control.Geocoder.Nominatim();
var geocoderControl = L.Control.geocoder({
    geocoder: geocoderNominatim
}) // etc.

And then perform this reverse lookup in your onDragEnd and apply the new popup contents:

function onDragEnd(event) {
    var latlng = event.target.getLatLng();

    geocoderNominatim.reverse(latlng, Mmap.options.crs.scale(Mmap.getZoom()), function(reverseGeocoded){
    }, this)
