i tried leaflet search control. Searching works great, i can see list with my points names, but when I want search it, it does not work, not move to search point. My JSON data are points. ` var data = us_states;

var map = new L.Map('map', {zoom: 5, center: new L.latLng([37.8, 16]) });

map.addLayer(new L.TileLayer('http://{s}.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png')); //base layer

var featuresLayer = new L.GeoJSON(data, {
        style: function(feature) {
            return {color: feature.properties.color };
        onEachFeature: function(feature, marker) {
            marker.bindPopup('<h4 style="color:'+feature.properties.color+'">'+ feature.properties.OBJECTID +'</h4>');


var searchControl = new L.Control.Search({
    layer: featuresLayer,
    propertyName: 'OBJECTID',
    marker: false,
    moveToLocation: function(latlng, OBJECTID, map) {

        var zoom = map.getBoundsZoom(latlng.layer.getBounds());
        map.setView(latlng, zoom); // access the zoom

searchControl.on('search:locationfound', function(e) {

    //console.log('search:locationfound', );


Maybe this will help. I manually figured out a zoom level that I wanted it to go to and set it in the control, after all it's just a marker. I would do it different if it was a polygon.

    var searchControl = new L.Control.Search({
    layer: bbTeam,                //layer name to search
    propertyName: 'Name',         //Search field
    marker: false,
    moveToLocation: function(latlng, title, map) {
        map.setView(latlng, 7);    // set the zoom
  • thanks, but it is still not working. My JSON are points. It looks that searching is ok ibb.co/eFSxfQ, but after enter(click) map is not move, not zoom nothing, i am very Frustrated... I have spant many hours, for this. I is for my school project. – komy Jul 26 '17 at 20:58

    moveToLocation: function(latlng, title, map) { console.log(latlng); map.setView(latlng, 14); } }) //This should show your getting lat/long coordinates and from there a setview should work. – Bill Chappell Jul 27 '17 at 12:32
  • great excellent, it is working :) can you give one more advice, it it move to location, but i want mark serach point, circle around marker, or change color, can you help me with it ? – komy Jul 27 '17 at 16:27

You need these two code blocks, I have it set if you click on a marker to put a red circle at the base of the marker. And if you click another marker to remove the first circle.

onEachFeature: function (feature, layer) {
    layer.on('click', function (e) {
            // get coordinates from GeoJSON
            var coords = e.target.feature.geometry.coordinates
            //pass coords to function to create marker.


// click marker
  var clickmark;

  // When you click on a marker, it calls the onMapClick function and passes the layers coordinates.
  // I grab the coords which are X,Y, and I need to flip them to latLng for a marker, 

  function onMapClick(coords) {

        var thecoords = coords.toString().split(',');
        var lat = thecoords[1];
        var lng = thecoords[0];
        //if prior marker exists, remove it.
        if (clickmark != undefined) {

         clickmark = L.circleMarker([lat,lng],{
            radius: 10,
            color: "#red",
            fillColor:  "red",
            fillOpacity: 0.8}
// end of code for click marker.
