How can I reference a single marker from many.

I have a number of markers on a map. When I click on one I can change the marker colour and store it's Lat/Long position.  If I then click another marker how can I find which was the previous selection so that I can change it back to the normal colour before changing the colour of the new selection?

This is how I create the markers and route:
Private Sub PlotRoute()
        Dim OverlayRoutes = New GMapOverlay(MyMap, "Layer-Route")
        Dim MyRoute As New List(Of GMap.NET.PointLatLng)
        Dim MyMarkers = New GMapOverlay(MyMap, "Layer-Stops")
        Dim MyPoint As New PointLatLng
        Dim TempData As Record
        Dim x As Integer = 0
        ' Step through all the gps data reading the Lat and Long into the Markers and Route.
        For Each TempData In GpsData
            MyPoint = New PointLatLng(TempData.Latitude, TempData.Longditude)
            Dim M As New GMapMarker_RedDot(MyPoint)
        ' Show the Markers overlay.
        ' Create and show the Route Track.
        Dim Track As MapRoute = New GMapRoute(MyRoute, "track")
    End Sub
BTW this is such a fantastic bit of programming.


P.S. Sorry, I can't find a way to stop the code all going into one block! Don’t use Firefox for discussions, then everthing works!

hey, just store your selected marker, and restore it before assigning new one

Thanks, but two things. 1. How do I get a code list to look right instead of the block that has appeared. It looked correct in the editor! 2. I can't see how to delete a particular marker. Thanks, Dennis.

when you paste code, use 'Insert code Snippet', and how to delete marker, check MainForm_KeyUp in Demo.WindowsForms

I rarely use Internet Explorer and all this rich formating doesn't show in Firefox.  Another exeption to add!
