Google Maps API - Markers InfoWindow

I followed the Google maps API videos and created a map that plots markers using my own locations.

I'm now trying to modify the infoWindow popup to display content that is within a tag with a class of div class="artist"> rather than the demo's example of the <address> but not having much luck so far.

Any suggestion on modifying the following would be greatly appreciated:

function addMarkerToMap(location, address) {
    var image = "/images/jazzclub.png";
    var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
        map: map,
        position: location,
        icon: image});

    var infoWindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({
        content: address
    google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "click", function () {
//            infoWindow.setContent("Place holder...");
        infoWindow.open(map, marker);
    google.maps.event.addListener(marker, "mouseout", function() {

//    $(".artist").each(function() { var $artistname = $(this); });

$("address").each(function () {
    var $address = $(this);
    geocoder.geocode({address: $address.text()}, function (results, status) {
        if (status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) addMarkerToMap(
            results[0].geometry.location, $address.text());
google.maps.event.addDomListener(map, "idle", function () {
    center = map.getCenter();
$(window).resize(function () {

$("address").each(function () { ...


$(".artist").each(function () { ...

Should get you on your way.

You're using .artist here because you want to get elements with the class artist. The period just means that you are matching a class name not the tag name.

If you're still stuck please post your HTML code as well and I'll get it sorted :)
