    Create an invisible panel on top of mappoint activeX control

    Hi, I'm trying (unsuccessfully ) to create an invisible panel on top of the mappoint ActiveX Control (MapPoint 2004) in Visual Studio 2005 using vb.net.

    I will then use this panel to receive all mouse events.

    Is anyone able to offer any assistance in the creation of the panel. I've searched countless forums but still can't find a working solution, or I'm missing something along the way. Any help is appreciated.

    Hi Wilfried, funny you mentioned that.

    I just purchased the mappoint source code of you a few days ago, and noticed the transparent panel under the MapPoint Controls in the Toolbox last night.

    How can I import the transparent panel into my own application?
    Or can I just create a new panel and copy the settings, or is there some associated code somewhere that I haven't yet seen?

    Regards

    Mike

    Hi,

    The panel is declared in Tools.c You can just copy it and then you have it in the components panel in your application, then you can drop it on the mappoint control and align it to fill it so that it is always over the whole control.
