PROBLEM SOLVED: Customizing Google Maps > Adding Info Windows

For some reason, Step 2/3 keeps prompting me to do exactly this, even though I've done it. I guess forward this to the development team, because I can't figure out what's wrong here. Here's the code challenge: http://teamtreehouse.com/library/adding-info-windows

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

@John - Rock on with your bad self :guitar:

I was adding this below the original var declaration of infoWindow, not further down where it needed to be.

Not solved for me, I get the error "You need to call 'google.maps.event.addListener()' with 'marker', 'click' and an anonymous function."

This the last 13 lines

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

ah ok, solved, misunderstood the question.

geocoder.geocode(
geocoderOptions,
function(results, status) {
    if(status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) {
        var marker = new google.maps.Marker({map: theMap, position: results[0].geometry.location});
        markers.push(marker);
        bounds.extend(results[0].geometry.location);
        theMap.fitBounds(bounds);
                    infoWindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({content: "Magic Kingdom"});

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