Creating Infowindows on features loaded via loadGeoJson()

I apologize if this is basic, but I have very limited javascript knowledge.

I'm making a map that loads GeoJSON data that I created in ArcGIS reformatted to GeoJSON using ogr2ogr. I've got the map loading and showing the point markers from my GeoJSON file, and I've even got a styleFeature() function to set styling on the features based on their properties.

The problem I'm having is trying to have infowindows pop up when a point feature is clicked on.

I have successfully used the code to set a event listener and update the contents of a div with the information from a clicked feature:

map.data.loadGeoJson('http://www.myurl.com/file.json');

map.data.setStyle(styleFeature);

map.data.addListener('click', function(event) {
    var myHTML = event.feature.getProperty('Description');
    document.getElementById('info-box').innerHTML = myHTML;
});

What'd I'd like to do instead is have an event that launches an infowindow like this, which doesn't work:

map.data.loadGeoJson('http://www.myurl.com/file.json');

map.data.setStyle(styleFeature);

map.data.addListener('click', function(event) {
    var myHTML = event.feature.getProperty('Description');
    var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow({content: myHTML});
});

My dataset consists of over a thousand points so hard-coding the infowindows doesn't work, and I haven't seen any examples that show how to create an array of infowindows as the features are looped through in the function called by setStyle() either.

I know this has to do with my lack of understanding scope, events, and object arrays, but I'm just hitting a wall.

Any help would be appreciated.

To get the infowindow to display on a click you need to call open().

  // global infowindow
  var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();

  // When the user clicks, open an infowindow
  map.data.addListener('click', function(event) {
      var myHTML = event.feature.getProperty("Description");
      infowindow.setContent("<div style='width:150px; text-align: center;'>"+myHTML+"</div>");
      infowindow.setPosition(event.feature.getGeometry().get());
      infowindow.setOptions({pixelOffset: new google.maps.Size(0,-30)});
      infowindow.open(map);
  });  

working fiddle

code snippet:

var infowindow = new google.maps.InfoWindow();
function gotoFeature(featureNum) {
    var feature = map.data.getFeatureById(features[featureNum].getId());
    if (!!feature) google.maps.event.trigger(feature, 'changeto', {feature: feature});
    else alert('feature not found!');
}

function initialize() {
  // Create a simple map.
  features=[];
  map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map-canvas'), {
    zoom: 4,
    center: {lat: -28, lng: 137.883}
  });
    google.maps.event.addListener(map,'click',function() {
        infowindow.close();
    });
    map.data.setStyle({fillOpacity:.8});
  // Load a GeoJSON from the same server as our demo.
  var featureId = 0;
  google.maps.event.addListener(map.data,'addfeature',function(e){
      if(e.feature.getGeometry().getType()==='Polygon'){
          features.push(e.feature);
          var bounds=new google.maps.LatLngBounds();
          
          e.feature.getGeometry().getArray().forEach(function(path){
          
             path.getArray().forEach(function(latLng){bounds.extend(latLng);})
          
          });
          e.feature.setProperty('bounds',bounds);
          e.feature.setProperty('featureNum',features.length-1);
          
          
        
        }
  });
  // When the user clicks, open an infowindow
  map.data.addListener('click', function(event) {
          var myHTML = event.feature.getProperty("Description");
      infowindow.setContent("<div style='width:150px; text-align: center;'>"+myHTML+"</div>");
          infowindow.setPosition(event.feature.getGeometry().get());
      infowindow.setOptions({pixelOffset: new google.maps.Size(0,-30)});
          infowindow.open(map);
  });    
   map.data.addGeoJson(googleJSON);
  
  
}

google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, 'load', initialize);
