I have marker cluster layer in Leaflet. I want to open specific URL when individual marker is clicked, but every time I click on any marker the URL of the last marker is opened.

I've tried many things like:


etc. but nothing works. Can anybody help me?

This is what I got so far:

  • Ah, the old "not knowing how javascript variable scope and referencing works" stuff. See stackoverflow.com/questions/111102/… Apr 7, 2022 at 10:35
  • Thanks Ivan, the solution of TomazicM works, but I understand it better now.

Your solution always opens last url from addressPoints beacuse value win_url is just pointer to array a which is again just pointer to array addressPoints, and this pointer changes when you iterate and it finally points to the last element of addressPoints array.

To use actual win_url option value of clicked marker inside click processing function you have to use evt.target.options.win_url value.

Relevant part of the code could then look something like this:

var markers = L.markerClusterGroup();
for (var i = 0; i < addressPoints.length; i++) {
  var a = addressPoints[i];
  var title = a[2];
  var win_url = a[3];
  var marker = L.marker(new L.LatLng(a[0], a[1]), {
    title: title,
    win_url: a[3]
  marker.on('click', function(evt){ 
  • Hi, thanks, but with this solution I don't see the markerscluster / icons anymore.
