    Weird behaviour of event listeners

    I have a listener for a click event on a map and on the marker. When I click on the marker, also the function that is attached to the map is fired. Why? Isn't a marker overlay?
    Another thing is that also with double click listeners react, and this is wrong for sure. What am I doing wrong?

    var newOfficeMarker = new nokia.maps.map.StandardMarker(
    	new nokia.maps.geo.Coordinate(0, 0),
    	{draggable: true}
    function selectionOfNewOffice(){
    	newOfficeMarker.addListener("click", function(evt){
    	}, true);
    	addNewOfficeMarkerListener = function(evt){
    		if(evt.currentTarget == map && map.objects.indexOf(newOfficeMarker)<0)
    	map.addListener("click", addNewOfficeMarkerListener, true);

    Re: Weird behaviour of event listeners

    Event behaviour is described in detail in the API reference documentation here: http://api.maps.nokia.com/en/apirefe...entTarget.html It explains that events will propagate through the DOM so the MapDisplay will also receive an event when the MapMarker is clicked. You can stop this by using methods such as stopImmediatePropagation() Consider this code snippet:

        var map = new nokia.maps.map.Display(mapContainer, {
            zoomLevel: 4, //zoom level for the map
            center: [50.5,15.5], // center coordinates
            components : [
               new nokia.maps.map.component.ZoomBar(), 
               new nokia.maps.map.component.Behavior(),
               new nokia.maps.map.component.TypeSelector(),
               new nokia.maps.map.component.Overview(),
               new nokia.maps.map.component.ScaleBar()]                   
    map.addListener("click", function(evt) {	 
    var marker = new nokia.maps.map.StandardMarker([50.5,15.5]);
    marker.addListener("click", function(evt) {	 
    Clicking on the marker will not fire the map "click" listener.
