Evaluating variable in loop at time of creation

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

I am creating markers on a Mapbox page and when the marker is clicked, it needs to open a different layer on the calling page.

I tried creating a loop where the marker click event was assigned automatically based on the index of the loop, but this evaluated the index value at the time of running, rather than the time of creation.

How can I extract this index value and have it called at the time of running?

Here is the code:

// Create a map in the div #map
var map = L.mapbox.map('map', 'marashi760.heap66lg')
    .setView([lat, lng], zoom);
var locations = [
    [-122.386839, 37.650615],
    [-118.398227, 33.94466],
    [-117.191262, 32.744102],
    [-117.860223, 33.680488],
    [-118.144392, 33.818421],
    [-122.219743, 37.712569],
    [-121.925906, 37.366695],
    [-121.590065, 38.695085],
    [-117.346057, 33.163207]
var mapLocations = new Array();
for(i=0;i<locations.length;i++) {
    //var thisLocation;
    //thisLocation = eval('location' + (i+1));
    coords = locations[i];
    mapLocations[i] = L.mapbox.featureLayer({
        type: 'Feature',
        geometry: {
            type: 'Point',
            coordinates: coords
        properties: {
            'marker-size': 'large',
            'marker-color': '#ec0112'
mapLocations[0].on('click', function() {
    $('.rental-location').css('display', 'none');
    $('.rental-location-1').css('display', 'block');
mapLocations[1].on('click', function() {
    $('.rental-location').css('display', 'none');
    $('.rental-location-2').css('display', 'block');
mapLocations[2].on('click', function() {
    $('.rental-location').css('display', 'none');
    $('.rental-location-3').css('display', 'block');
// etc for all markers

I tried adding this into the loop:
    mapLocations[i].on('click', function() {
        $('.rental-location').css('display', 'none');
        $('.rental-location-' + (i+1)).css('display', 'block');

but it the penultimate line always evaluates (i+1) to the value of i at the time of running, rather than creation. It seems silly that I have to manually assign the click functionality rather than iterate through the markers.
