    Clear Push Pin

    Ok.. I am very new to Map Point and am running into a problem.

    I have several push pins on my map. Although sometimes I need to see everything I would like to be able to clear a set of push pins from time to time.

    Example:
    Customers
    Retailers
    Possible Retailers.
    Skate Parks

    To work out locations for demo's I would like to clear the push pin sets so only retailers and skate parks are visible. This would give me a clearer picture than seeing a map full of other push pins.

    I have looked thru other posts and have found that this can only be accomplished by code. I know nothing about code so unless someone can help me this isn't an option.

    To solve this problem what if someone (not me unfortunately) was able to create a CLEAR push pin. This way I could select my different pushpins and set them to the clear one so I could "erase" them from the map. Once I am done I could easily switch the push pin back to what it should be. Does that make sense?

    Anyone have any thoughts on this? I would be greatful if anyone could help me with either of these options.

    Thank you,
    Josh

    Just answered my own questions.

    Here is what I have done.

    I created the smallest possible bmp possible and saved it as clear.bmp.

    I imported that into my map and it works great.

    I simply double click the push pin set I would like to "disappear" select the clear icon (the trouble is you can't see it to click on it but you figure it out) and that set will be cleared from the map.

    No code and it's really easy to get that set back by simply setting it to a visible push pin.

    Please let me know your thoughts
    Thanks,
    Josh
