Adding info window in JQuery(customizing googlemaps)

I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. Here's the question "On the next line, in app.js, use "google.maps.event.addListener()" with "marker" as the first argument, "click" as the second, and then an anonymous function as the third."

var mapOptions = {
    center: new google.maps.LatLng(28.42, -81.58),
    zoom: 18,
    mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.SATELLITE

var mapElement = document.getElementById("map");
var theMap = new google.maps.Map(mapElement, mapOptions);
var markers = new Array();

var geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();
var bounds = new google.maps.LatLngBounds();

var geocoderOptions = {address: "Magic Kingdom, Disney World"};

var markerImage;
var infoWindow;

    function(results, status) {
        if(status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) {
            var marker = new google.maps.Marker({map: theMap, position: results[0].geometry.location});
      infoWindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({content: "Magic Kingdom"});
      google.maps.event.addListener(marker, click, function(){})

Your lines of code should be right after:

var marker




 google.maps.event.addListener(marker, click, function(){})

Should be a string, last try putting a semi colon at the end of:

 google.maps.event.addListener(marker, click, function(){})

Hope that helps.

Merry Christmas! Can you help me with this I'm not following where the code is supposed to be. I'm in 2/3 http://codepen.io/AcesUp/pen/spnrl

I have this and cannot proceed:

  var infoWindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({content: "Magic Kingdom"});
  google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function(){
  infoWindow.open(map, marker)

You do not need the infoWindow.open(map, marker) ...check to see if you have it on line 17, it should be on line 27.

You need theMap instead of map in your infoWindow.
