    Defaulting the setting to shortest instead of quickest

    Hi,
    I was wondering how I could have Mappoint default to the shortest route instead of the quickest. I would like Mappoint to come up with it all the time instead of having to select it everytime I create a route.

    Thanks for any help,
    N

    Route Default Settings

    Sorry - No.

    Yes if you create your routes with a program.

    The Route.Waypoint Object allows you to define:

    objRoute.Waypoints.Item(1).SegmentPreferences = geoSegmentPreferred

    The options are:

    2 geoSegmentPreferred
    0 geoSegmentQuickest
    1 geoSegmentShortest

    Note you set this for each item in the waypoint collection.

    Do I code it in VB or VC++?

    How do I gain access to the Route.Waypoint.Object? Through VB or VC++? Is it a COM object in Visual STudio?

    Thanks,
    nitin

    MapPoint Controls

    Any programming environment that will allow you to reference the MapPoint Controls. VB, C++, Visual Studio all work.
