    Add a bitmap to Mappoint control

    Hi,

    I have a VB application which uses Mappoint control.
    Is there any way to add bitmaps to the map in certain locations programatically?

    Thank you,
    Belita

    Hi,
    Try this :

    Code:
    Sub ImportCustomSymbol()
    
    Dim objApp As New MapPoint.Application
    Dim objMap As MapPoint.Map
    Dim objPin As MapPoint.Pushpin
    Dim objSymbol As MapPoint.Symbol
    
    'Configure l'application
    Set objMap = objApp.ActiveMap
    objApp.Visible = True
    objApp.UserControl = True
    
     
    Set objPin = objMap.AddPushpin(objMap.FindResults("Seattle, WA")(1))
    
     
    
    Set objSymbol = objMap.Symbols.Add(objApp.Path + "\Samples\MySpeedyCamel.bmp")   
    
    objPin.Symbol = objSymbol.ID
    
    End Sub
    You can get MySpeedyCamel.bmp in my website

    A more complex question?

    Good answer Moh.

    Here's one for you. I see people have an addin to display GeoCoded Tiff files in MapPoint as an 'overlay' or underlay on the map. Example below if my explanation is not clear:

    So rather than a .BMP how about display a .TIFF based on the lat long data in the file. You got sample code to do that Moh? I suspect they use the shapes layer and create little shapes with colour and transparency settings. What do you think?

    OK I see your camel - so the Moroccan keeps camels and the German keeps fish. But do you know in real time where your camel is, how fast he's going, which direction, where he's been, etc - come on admit you need ACL's from me. www.fleetscan.com
