What do you think is the best way to make UI for an isometric game.. I dont have much experience in UI so im not sure where to start.

I need something the mouse can interact with and that works good and fast. I already created a world that is isometric you can move and the world scrolls and stuff but i would like to start with UI and im not sure what i should do.

I would like to have maybe a display that displays an image that i give it, that is part invisible, that it is on top of the main game panel and that i route an area to be clicked on it by a mouse. i would like some help with the code behind because I'm not sure how to get the specific area. By the way do you think this would be a good way?

Thanks for the help..

The best way is to use a library designed to provide GUI functionality. This will be specific to how you want to use it, and what you're using already. Here are some common ones:
