    Object Model
    CIMCharacterMarker ClassMapPoint ClassCIMCharacterMarker ClassCIMCharacterMarker ClassCIMMarkerPlacement ClassCIMPolygonSymbol Class
    The shape of a marker is defined by a glyph in a font. The marker is drawn using the specified size and color. Each marker has a defined frame around the glyph that is considered when the size is applied. As a result, character markers of the same size may appear different sizes if the glyphs frames are different sizes.
    Modify a point symbol created from a character marker
    //create marker from the Font, char index,size,color
    var cimMarker = SymbolFactory.Instance.ConstructMarker(125, "Wingdings 3", "Regular", 6, ColorFactory.Instance.BlueRGB) as CIMCharacterMarker;
      var polygonMarker = cimMarker.Symbol;
      //modifying the polygon's outline and fill
      //This is the outline
      polygonMarker.SymbolLayers[0] = SymbolFactory.Instance.ConstructStroke(ColorFactory.Instance.GreenRGB, 2, SimpleLineStyle.Solid);
      //This is the fill
      polygonMarker.SymbolLayers[1] = SymbolFactory.Instance.ConstructSolidFill(ColorFactory.Instance.BlueRGB);
      //create a symbol from the marker 
      //Note this overload of ConstructPointSymbol does not need to be run within QueuedTask.Run.
      var pointSymbol = SymbolFactory.Instance.ConstructPointSymbol(cimMarker);
