    Custom Icons in MP Web Service

    I'm trying to get custom icons to work.

    I've successfully uploaded 30-odd icons. On that "successful job completion" page I got after the upload, it gives me a Data Source ID value of 1234 or whatever--a 4-digit number.

    I'm assuming this is what I provide as the Pushpin.IconDataSource value. However, when I do so, and try to use any of these new icons, I get this error in ASP.NET:

    ============
    Either the specified data source does not exist, or your subscription does not allow you access. For information on upgrading your subscription, contact your MapPoint .NET representative.
    ============

    Anyone have an idea on this? What the heck am I supposed to provide as my Pushpin.IconDataSource value?

    Thanks a lot.

    I spoke with the poor fellow who's posted this question before:

    > http://www.mp2kmag.com/mappoint/disc...icondatasource

    only to find he *still* can't get this to work.

    Surely, surely there's someone out there who has uploaded and used custom icons!

    When I use my custom icons, I specify the source like this:

    objPushpin.IconDataSource = "MyAccountName.MyAccountNumber"

    For instance: "Microsoft.1234"

    Where your account name and number was given to you in the email from the MapPoint account team, where all your codes and such were sent.

    Be patient

    It can take a little while for uploaded icons to become available on all the servers...so after you've performed an icon upload, take a shower or write a new compiler or something. Anything to waste about 20-40 minutes of time before you attempt to reference the new/changed icon.
