 I'm coding an application wich uses the map. The map shows moving
Objects. The direction in which objects are move should be(displayed
as arrow) the object-image.
so i startet with the implementation of the map view.

How can i create objects on the map, which (after klicking on them)
are able to show their names and also that specific arrows to jump to
the next object, like in Google Maps.

I tried setMarker and Canvas, but have no idea of how to use them.

Thank you for helping me.

2. Replacing default Menu with a Dialog


I wish to replace the default Menu with a Dialog that consists of
several TextViews. Creating the dialog is easy, however how does one
override the defualt Menu and have the dialoge "show" and dismiss" in
the same manner as the default menu?

Currently I create the dialog like this:

public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {

        dialog = new Dialog(this);


        return true;

This works and displays the dialog when the "Menu" button is pressed,
however if I press the "back" button to hide the dialog the dialog
fails to display again if I repress the "Menu" button.

I thought maybe the dialog needed to be properly "dismissed" so I
overrided this method:

public void onOptionsMenuClosed(Menu menu) {

However, this does not work either.

Anyone know the correct way to do this?
