would it be possible to make a custom marker that will take an image thats definable programmatically?

for eg.

dim ImageMarker as New CustomMarker(PointLatLng)

Imagemarker.Image = "someimage.jpg"

You could try something like this to get yourself started.  Derive a class from GMap.NET.WindowsForms.GMapMarker and add the following:

Public MarkerImage as System.Drawing.Image

Public Overrides Sub OnRender(ByVal g As System.Drawing.Graphics)
    If Me.MarkerImage IsNot Nothing Then
        g.DrawImage(Me.MarkerImage, Me.LocalPosition)
    End If
End Sub

I can change "IsMouseOver" to true?. For placing the cursor over the imageappears ToolTip?

what? ;/

The property "IsMouseOver" is read-only, so I could not do that by placing the mouseon the image to show the tool tip.

As I can do this?

In spanish:
La propiedad "IsMouseOver" es de solo lectura, asi que no he podido hacer que al ubicar el mouse sobre la imagen se muestre el tool tip.
Como puedo hacer esto?

I cant really understand your question. If you set your mouse over the marker, the property IsMouseOver changes to true, and the tooltip will be shown, if the property is

Marker.ToolTipMode = MarkerTooltipMode.OnMouseOver

If you want to move your mousecursor to the marker by code, you should try things like:

Windows.Forms.Cursor.Position = New System.Drawing.Point(Marker.LocalPosition)

After that tooltip will be show.

Is this the answer for your question? ;)
