I want to show multiple markers on my Google map with OpenLayers. Below is my code :

for (var pointcount = 0; pointcount < jsonObj.length; pointcount++) {

if (jsonObj[pointcount].Long != null && jsonObj[pointcount].Lat != null) {

    var markerslonLat = new OpenLayers.LonLat(jsonObj[pointcount].Long, jsonObj[pointcount].Lat).transform(WGS84, map.getProjectionObject(), 0);

    markers.addMarker(new OpenLayers.Marker(markerslonLat, icon));

    alert('  marker added. Long : ' + jsonObj[pointcount].Long + '    ||    lat : ' + jsonObj[pointcount].Lat);

But, it shows only last one. What have I missed in my code?

I have a feeling that your icon is being reused and that is why it appears that only the last point is showing up, it is the only one with an icon. After the icon is used once, you need to clone your icon.


so you should have something like this:

if(pointcount == 0){
    markers.addMarker(new OpenLayers.Marker(markerslonLat, icon));
    //Makes another icon to use by cloning.
    markers.addMarker(new OpenLayers.Marker(markerslonLat, icon.clone()));
