You will not be able to draw a linestring in mousemove using sharpmap in an page - it will not be fast enough as you would need to redraw the whole image for every pixel moved on the screen.
You will have to use svg or vml to draw an overlay to achieve this - but you would be better off using OpenLayers as the 'control' and SharpMap as a wms server

Hi vittal , I don't have any code that I can share and it is a non trivial task, different browsers support different rendering engines and you will likely need to cope with both. Redrawing on the server will not be fast enough..
