Reference markers after adding

Jan 7, 2010 at 9:29 PM


I have successfully added a group of markers in a test application I am creating.  I was able to do that using the following code:

For Each row As DataRow In _MapData.Rows
                lat = row.Item("LocLatitude")
                lon = row.Item("LocLongitude")
                LocID = row.Item("LocID")
                point = New PointLatLng(lat, lon)
                m = New GMapMarkerGoogleGreen(point)
                cm = New MyCustomMarker(point)
                mborders = New GMapMarkerRect(point)

                p = GMaps.Instance.GetPlacemarkFromGeocoder(point)
                'objects.TooltipFont = New Font("Arial", 5, FontStyle.Bold)
                If p.Address.Contains("Vandergrift") Then
                    cm.MarkerImage = New Bitmap("C:\Users\Jacob\Downloads\Pushpin Images\197MaroonExplosionSign.bmp")
                    cm.ToolTipText = p.Address
                    cm.TooltipMode = MarkerTooltipMode.OnMouseOver
                    cm.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(10, 10)
                    m.ToolTipText = p.Address
                    m.Tag = LocID                    
                    m.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(10, 10)
                End If


Next row


I added these markers based on entries in a database and therefore will never know the exact number of markers that will be displayed.  After displaying them I was hoping to access a marker's properties by using the click_event and displaying its information.  However, I have had trouble doing this.  I thought that I could use the declared overlay and access the complete list of markers, but I haven't been able to do that.  For example, something like the following: objects.Markers.CurrentMarker.Tag.  Any help would be much appreciated!  Thanks!

yes each marker has Tag property, you can use it, or just custom yourClass : GMapMarker. I recommend create class for db table, and after reading data from db save it to list for further needs.

Ok, thanks. Just for clarity...When you say list, do you mean something like a stack or an array?  Is there no collection to access?
