    Hi All,

    I am having trouble using an icon [Non default] for a marker using GoogleMapExtras. The code I am on at the moment [below] doesn't work. I have tried several arrangements without sucess.
    From GoogleMapExtras library and links to Google it appears I need to use BitMapDescriptor that needs to use BitMapDescriptorFactory but I can't find anything that shows how this "chain of needs" fits together.

    Dim MarkerOptions1 As MarkerOptions
    Dim BTSMarker As Marker
            MarkerOptions1.Position2(BTSLat, BTSLng).Snippet(
            BTSMarker=GoogleMapsExtras1.AddMarker(gmap, MarkerOptions1)
    When I try to run this code I get the message containing instructions:
    I think if I knew what this meant I wouldn't have a problem.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Regards Roger

    Thanks Warwound,

    An abosolute perfect example, sorted my problem in less than a minute.
    It's a case of "The Truth is Out There", but very hard to find under the mountain of info on the forum.
    It would be good if this was in the Wiki. [If it is I couldn't find it there either.]

    Once again, many thanks.
