On Desktop or web? for web I'd use openlayers as the client and sharpmap as a wms server, OpenLayers  has this functionality as part of its API. For desktop you would need to float a control over the feature, you can use map.WorldToImage to convert a point in real world coordinates to the screen coordinates

Hi JD, I came accross the same problems. Could you give me some more details? What do U mean by float a control over the feature? Do you mean I need to add some control parts? If it is like this, then what control would you suggest me to use ? I am confused. Oh ,by the way I am working on an Winform project a desktop one.
